Introduction

The Corbetts is the collective name given the mountains in Scotland which are between 2,500 feet and 3,000 feet high, and which have a re-ascent of 500 feet on all sides.

John Rooke Corbett was a keen member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club in the mid 20th Century, primarily between the two World Wars. He was also one of the founder members of the Rucksack Club. In 1930 he became only the second person ever to complete all the Munros and Tops (the fourth to complete only the Munros), but more importantly he was also the first person to climb all the 2,000 foot hills. A result of his time wandering was the list we know today as Corbett’s List.

One key 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, as 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 more advanced height measurement.

Corbett-bagging has become much more popular recently, as more and more people have realised that there is more to life than Munros. Indeed, many Corbetts can be considered to be a far superior day out than a day Munro-bagging. For example, compare The Cobbler (a Corbett) to almost any Geal Carn (the most dull and dreary Munros you will ever see). Corbett-bagging can also be considered much more difficult than the more popular Munro-bagging. On a good day you can ‘bag’ perhaps seven (South Shiel Ridge) or six (Fisherfield) Munros, and yet it is virtually impossible to climb five Corbetts in a single day.

The table is interactive; click on the name of the mountain to go to its SP Mountain/Rock page (if one exists) and click on the map symbols to go to Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 maps of the immediate area. The map number included in each table is for the Ordnance Survey 1:50 000 Landranger Series sheet that the mountain appears on.
