Arrochar is situated at the northeast tip of Loch Long, with the water of
Loch Lomond just a mile and a half to the east. This fact was used to good
effect by the Vikings in 1263 when they sailed up the sea loch and dragged their
boats across land to its neighbour.
In more peaceful times Arrochar makes a good base for hill walkers and
climbers that come to walk and climb in the Arrochar Alps. This is the
range of mountains to the northwest of the village, the most famous of these is
Ben Arthur, which is also known as the Cobbler.
