Preface

This list page forms part of a collection of sub-pages that will support an overarching Area/Range page for the Grampian Mountains in Scotland. Originally the list was intended to be presented on the Area/Range page itself, however, due to the length of the list, and the implications this has to the presentation and load times of the main page, it was decided to remove it from the main body of the work and present it separately.

Introduction

The Grampian Mountains are home to many famous and iconic British peaks including such attractions as Ben Nevis, Ben Macdui, Lochnagar and Ben Arthur. This page lists those that qualify to be classified as Corbett.

What's a Corbett?

A Corbett is a Scottish hill between 2500 and 2999 feet high with a drop of at least 500 feet (152.4m) on all sides. The main difference between the Corbetts and the Munros is that the definition of a Corbett is much more clearly defined. Much of today’s definition of Munro’s lies with the opinion of the SMC secretary and members and they have refined the list many times, based upon what they think should and should not be a Munro. With Corbett’s however, the only reason for reclassifying a hill is through a more advanced height measurement.

The list was compiled in the 1920s by John Rooke Corbett, a Bristol-based climber and SMC member, and was published posthumously after it was passed to the SMC by his sister. There are 219 Corbetts, 92 of which are located within the Grampian Mountains area.

How to use this page

The Map:
The map is interactive and you can get name and height information for the mountains by hovering your mouse cursor over the red triangles. When a little 'hand symbol' appears over a triangle it means that there is a page on Summitpost for that mountain, just click on the triangle to be shown the relevant mountain/rock page.

Tip: Look out for these

The Table:
This is pretty simple, all you have to do is look at it. The key below explains what the different criteria mean.

Key

Rank Rank in order of absolute height
Name Name of the mountain/peak
M Height in metres
Ft Height in feet

Thanks for the heads up, it's funny because it works just fine for me. What is it, or rather isn't it, doing for you? And what browser are you using?

Using FF I don't get a single label when hovering the mouse over the red triangles (tried many - not all - without success). I just tried IE, they do show up with that. I guess the problem can be solved by using both the "alt" and "title" tags in the image map. One works with IE, the other with FF, I just don't remember which for which.

Hi Peter, thanks for your help on this. I've changes all the ALT tags to TITLE tags (it still seems to work with IE), does the map work for you now?

Cheers

Dan

You're welcome. I use the failsafe method of including both, but you're right, the labels now show up well both with IE and FF. Cheers, Peter
