Hills. The Munros are all done, so how about some Corbetts and cycling and distilleries?

2019 - 2, and 141 to go.
Started the year with a wander up Beinn Mheadhonach on January 3rd - great to be out.
On January 5th some of us attempted Ben Laoigh (Lui) in a quest for the source of the Tay, but beaten by the icy conditions at the top.
Towards the end of January we headed up to FA to attempt Ben Loinne but it was not to be, though I did manage Beinn Iaruinn.
On 4th January I was so fed up with the weather I headed up to the East Cairngorms and had a stroll up Morven.
On 6th January four of us headed up Beinn Luibhean for some more winter walking. Great day.
Nothing in February, but in March Megan and I went up Geal-charn Mor.
Over the Easter Weekend Euan, Mark, Stuart and I had a bothy and camping expedition to Islay - recommended. And the following weekend I got out again, for a wander up Carn an Fhreiceadain.
At the end of April I revisited Stob a'Choin and managed to get to the top this time.
In May Sharon did the West Highland Way, so I headed up to Glenfinnan to do Sgurr an Utha, camp overnight, then head up Streap - a long walk
27th and 28th May I managed to get up to Deeside for a nice walk up Carn na Drochaide and Sgor Mor
In mid-June I managed to pick the worst weather for six weeks to do the Rum Cuillins.
First of July, stonking weather, headed up Beinn Udlaidh and Beinn Bhreac-liath.
On Glasgow Fair Weekend I was busy on the Saturday, but got away the Sunday/Monday to do Carn Liath, Culdaroch and Conachraig.
And one failed attempt on BeinnOdhar Beag. Did manage a cycling tour of Islay in September though.
All the Corbetts I have done :-
|According to Mark's 1996 book there were 219 Corbetts, but I know Beinn a' Chlaidheimh was downgraded from a Munro in 2012 (after I had scaled it), and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was downgraded in 2009 (one I still need to do). Wikipedia, Steven Fallon, Munro Magic and I therefore all agree 221 is the total number I have to do.|
