This is a list of Corbett mountains in Scotland by height. Corbetts are defined as Scottish mountains between 2,500–3,000 feet (762.0–914.4 m) in height, the general requirement to be a "mountain" in the British Isles, with a prominence over 500 feet (152.4 m);[1] solely imperial measurement thresholds.[2][3]

The first list was compiled in the 1920s by John Rooke Corbett, a Bristol-based climber and Scottish Mountaineering Club ("SMC") member, and was published posthumously, after his sister passed it to the SMC, in the 1953 edition of Munro's Tables.[2][4] Corbetts are the next category down from the Munros and Munro Tops in terms of height (e.g. below the 3,000 feet (914.4 m) threshold), but their explicit prominence threshold of 500 feet (152 m), ensure they are material peaks.[2] By definition, all Corbetts, given their prominence, are Marilyns.[5] The SMC keeps a list of Corbetts.[1]

As of October 2018, there were 222 Corbetts in Scotland.[6] 21 of these 222 Corbetts have a prominence that exceeds the P600 threshold of 600 metres (1,969 ft), which would class them as "Majors".[6] The highest Corbett, Beinn a' Chlaidheimh, at 914 metres (2,999 ft) is just below the threshold for a Munro, a status it held until it was demoted in 2012 based on new surveys;[7] it ranks as the 478th highest mountain in the British Isles, on the Simms classification.[6] The Corbett with the greatest prominence is Goat Fell at 874 metres (2,867 ft), which ranks it as the 16th most prominent mountain in the British Isles.[6]

Climbers who climb all of the Corbetts are called Corbetteers, with the first being John Corbett himself who completed them in 1943. The second completion occurred many years later by William McKnight Docharty in May 1960;[2][8] a list of Corbetteers is maintained, which as of July 2018, totalled 678.[8][9]

Corbett mountains by height[edit]

This list was downloaded from the Database of British and Irish Hills ("DoBIH") in October 2018, and are peaks the DoBIH marks as being Corbetts ("C").[a][12] The SMC updates their list of official Corbetts from time to time, and the DoBIH also updates their measurements as more detailed surveys are recorded, so these tables should not be amended or updated unless the entire DoBIH data is re-downloaded again.

  1. ^ a b "Corbetts". Scottish Mountaineering Club. 2018. The list of all peaks in Scotland with a height of 2500ft (762m) or more and less than 3000ft (914.4m) with a drop of at least 500ft (152.4m) between each peak and any higher land. The Corbetts are more clearly defined than is the case with the Munros, only the aforementioned rules and sufficiently detailed topographic data are necessary to reproduce the list of hills in the set. John Rooke Corbett was a district valuer based in Bristol and a keen member of the Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC) in the years between the two World Wars. [...] When Corbett died, his list was passed to the SMC by his sister. As has been the case with the Munros, the list of Corbetts has changed over the years as a result of changes in hill and bealach heights recognised by the Ordnance Survey. There are currently 222 Corbetts.
