Walking the Corbetts Vol 2 - North of the Great Glen

The Corbetts Scotlands 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. Subsidiary summits of Munros and Corbetts between 2500 and 2999ft high with a drop of at least 30m on all sides are known as Corbett Tops. Also mentioned in the route descriptions are Grahams, which are mountains between 2000 and 2499ft, and Donalds, which are hills over 2000ft in Southern Scotland The routes described here are not necessarily for the peak bagger who just wants the shortest and easiest way up the mountain; theyre for the walker who wants the best, most interesting route up the wildest glen or along the most dramatic ridges.
This second volume of a two-volume guidebook to all the Scottish Corbetts describes the best ascents of the 109 Corbetts north of the Great Glen, in 90 routes.
