Update – Corbetts for Courses 2019


Wanted: more Corbetteers! 

Mountain Aid: the hill walkers’ charity is trying to get all Corbetts climbed during its May 2019 initiative Corbetts for Courses. After a cold start to the month, the good weather is bringing out the hillwalkers and – now just over halfway through the month – the pace is picking up with 80 hills already climbed or committed – but there are still plenty to choose from!

The challenge will raise valuable funds to ensure Mountain Aid can continue to offer free skills training and safety lectures.

To get involved: 

 Join the Mountain Aid Corbetts4Courses Facebook group (or contact them by email)
 Choose a Corbett (there’s 222 in total, a list of those completed already is regularly updated on Facebook)
 Post your chosen Corbett(s) to the Facebook group (or email Mountain Aid)
 Climb your Corbett during May and share your summit photo to the group (or email it to Mountain Aid who will post it for you)
 Make a donation to Mountain Aid (£10 is suggested but please give what you can).

The Corbetts & Other Scottish Hills was first published in 1990 as a companion volume to the Scottish Mountaineering Club’s comprehensive guide to The Munros. This new edition has been fully updated by both previous and new authors and is complemented throughout by new mapping and a large number of new photographs. The guidebook details routes up all 222 Corbetts (Scottish hills between 2,500 ft. and 3,000 ft.) and many other popular lower hills. Other hills include popular classics such as Criffel, Tinto, The Pentlands, The Eildons, The Ochils, Ben Venue, Mount Blair, Bennachie, Stac Pollaidh, Suilven and a wide range of hills throughout the islands, from Lewis to Arran. The book has been edited by Rob Milne and Hamish Brown.
