The Corbetts

Corbetts are defined as Scottish mountains between 2,500–3,000 feet (762.0–914.4 m) in height with a prominence over 500 feet (152.4 m).

Having compleated the Munros in 2015, after a bit of a break of a few years, I feel it is time to get back into the Hills of Scotland and attempt to climb the next rung down in the Hills, the Corbetts. The Corbetts will introduce me to lots of interesting new areas and islands such as the Galloway hills, Applecross, Ardgour and Morven, extensive wilds Beyond the Great Glen , Arran, Jura, Rum and the Outer Isles, and gems like Ben Tee, Fuar Tholl, Cul Mor and Cul Beg, Foinaven and Arkle, The Merrick and The Clisham. With 222 hills on the list,  it will be a big challenge but in the same way that I planned my Munro campaign, I will be trying to bag as many Corbetts in one day as I can. This will involved careful planning as well as long days in the hills as well. I expect most of my trips of Scotland will be in May and June to take advantage to the long daylight so I expect plenty of the days with 15 or more hours on the hill or maybe even mutliday hikes.

I will enter details of my routes as they hikes are completed and do please get in touch if you are interested in joining me for some Corbett fun!!!!
