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.

Beinn an Eoin 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 !

Arkle 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.

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.
