Corbetts

Scottish mountains between 2,500 and 3,000 feet high

The mountains in Scotland that have a height between 2,500 and 3,000 feet high and have a drop over at least 500ft on all sides are referred to as Corbetts.

Torridon's Beinn Dearg from Gorm-loch Fada Named after the original list compiler, J. Rooke Corbett, the Corbetts are the Scottish hills that have a height of at least 2,500ft but are under the Munro height of 3,000ft. Corbetts also have a drop of 500ft (or 152.4 metres) on all sides (called 'prominence'). There are currently 222 Corbetts. There are also Corbett Tops, which can also be subsiduary peaks on Munros !

You may think that these hills would be duller than the higher Munros, and in some cases you'd be right. However, there are some fantastic Corbett mountains : the Cobbler, Quinag, Beinn Damh, Fionaven, Arkle and Goatfell to name but a few.

Sail Ghorm from the north After re-measurement in early July'16, Cnoc Choinnich (near the Brack and Ben Donich) was given a revised height of 764m (see this article), so a new Corbett peak arrived !

See the tabs above to get the Corbetts listed by region, name and height.
