Corbetts

This page contains notes and news of direct interest to Corbetteers - keen hillwalkers in Scotland who keep a record of the Corbetts they ascend. The current list of Corbetteers can now be accessed using our new database. One can search for names by surname or number, and even see who has a photograph attached. Background information on the Corbetts can be found in Hillwalking - Key Facts . Incidentally, the archaic spelling compleation is often used here, as a nod both to Izaak Walton's book 'The Compleat Angler', and a compliment to another noteworthy sport - Corbett-bagging.

Compleated the Corbetts?

Notification of compleation and any amendments to the List should be sent in writing only, to:

David Broadhead
17 Drumdyre Road
DINGWALL
IV15 9RW

Enclose a SAE to ensure a reply. Mr Broadhead, The Clerk of the List, is always interested in how long you have taken, the first and last hills, age, and plans for the future.

We do not provide numbers for those finishing the Corbetts; the date is however recorded.

Corbetteers' Pictures

Note that we can now accept photographs of you on your final Corbett summit and we provide a listing similar to that maintained for Munroists. Once you have notified the Clerk of the List you may submit your compleation piture by email only to compleationpic@smc.org.uk. Files must be in jpeg (*.jpg) format, be at least 500px wide and have a file size of no more than 5MB. Please remember to include your compleation: number, date, hill, and companions (if wished).

Please note that your compleation photograph should be that taken at your final summit – and as they will be resized to 500 pixels wide, don't be afraid of getting in close to the subject. Likewise, a wide, panorama style photo will shrink down alarmingly, so squeeze in your companions and hug the cairn! Have a look at the range of photographs online to see what we mean. The SMC also reserve the right to decline submitted photographs.

Corbett Concerns
