About this book

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.

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 Corbetts describes the best ascents of the 112 Corbetts south of the Great Glen, in 95 routes.
