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


  Previously - 19
2016        - 26
2017        - 17
2018        - 16, and 143 to go.

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 - recommneded.  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, 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.

No hills in August, September, October or November - what is going on.  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.

France French names
And some completely unrelated music clips I seem to have created a page for?

(and thanks to Rob Milne and Hamish Brown and the Scottish Mountaineering Club, whose book I have shamelessly cribbed from for the structure and maps found here.)
