The Corbetts – Scotland’s mountains between 2500 and 2999ft in height – are less visited but in most cases more accessible than the ever-popular Munros, and frequently offer better views when the 3000ers are shrouded in cloud. Their lower altitude also means the walks tend to be shorter meaning they can be tackled easily between breakfast and dinner and during the short daylight hours in winter.

However, many of the Corbetts are very remote from road access and will still give a demanding hike. What is more, between many of the peaks listed as Munros, there is little drop, so you can often climb several in one day. By contrast, the requirement for a 500ft drop on all sides between listed Corbetts means that there are few occasions where Corbetts can be linked together. Subsidiary summits of Munros and Corbetts between 2500 and 2999ft high with a drop of at least 30m on all sides are known as Corbett Tops.

Also mentioned in the route descriptions are Grahams, which are mountains between 2000 and 2499ft, and Donalds, which are hills over 2000ft in Southern Scotland. The routes described here are not necessarily for the peak bagger who just wants the shortest and easiest way up the mountain; they’re for the walker who wants the best, most interesting route up the wildest glen or along the most dramatic ridges.

This first volume of a two-volume guidebook to all the Scottish Corbetts describes the best ascents of the 112 Corbetts south of the Great Glen, in 95 routes. Volume 2 describes routes on the 109 Corbetts north of the Great Glen.

includes the Southern Uplands, Southern Highlands, Cairngorms and also the islands of Jura and Arran
divided into 11 sections, each walkable in a fortnight
illustrated with 1:100,000 custom mapping based on OS data
