Recommended Corbett/Graham combos

Recommended Corbett/Graham combos


Postby LobeyD » Fri Jun 04, 2021 4:01 pm

Have reached the Munro stage where the remaining ones are far away and therefore have been looking for good smaller hill rounds more close to home (Glasgow). As Corbetts tend to be solitary, I've been looking for Corbett/Graham combinations, but there is no good resource for this and it's a faff looking through trip reports etc. I'd appreciate any recommdations for the Southern Highlands and beyond.

As a starter I would recommend Stob Breac, Stob a'Choin and Meall Mor from Inverlochlarig as a quieter alternative to the Munros the other way.

Under your username top left there is an 'all hills' bagging map which shows Corbetts and Grahams together, it also shows Munros but that may not be an issue if you have done them already and turned them blue. Otherwise use hillbagging.co.uk and set the filters to Corbetts and Grahams only.

Here's some of the more obvious ones, going roughly south to north:

Meall an Fhudair + Beinn Damhain
Beinn Stacach + Creag Mhor
Creagan na Beinne + Shee of Ardtalnaig
Beinn Chuirn + Meall Odhar
Beinn Bheula + Beinn Lochain
Monamenach + Duchray Hill (from Glen Shee)
The Fara + Meall nan Eagan
Glas Bheinn + Beinn na Cloiche
Creach Bheinn + Fuar Bheinn + Beinn na Cille (very good round)
Garbh Bheinn + Beinn Bheag + Sgorr Mhic Eacharna (even better!)
Beinn an Oir + Beinn Shiantaidh + Beinn a' Chaolais (a classic)
Askival + Ainshval + Trollabhal (maybe the best of the lot)
Corryhabbie Hill + Cook's Cairn
Beinn Iaruinn + Leana Mhor
Sgurr an Utha + Glas-charn
Garbh-bheinn + Belig
Glamaig + Beinn Dearg Mhor
Beinn Damh + Beinn na h-Eaglaise
Beinn Enaiglair + Meall Doire Faid
Beinn Leoid + Meallan a' Chuail + Meall an Fheur Loch
Meall Horn + Sabhal Beag

I've done quite a few of these if you need any more specific route advice, and this might help you find some more: https://www.hill-bagging.co.uk/fullmap.php?qu=C&ty=C,G&ct=EWMS

I'll add to the list above
The 2 Corbetts Meall na h-Eilde and Geal Charn from Loch Arkaig. Go over the Graham Glas Bheinn first

I know you said " far away " but the trio on Quinag should be done - you'll maybe forget names
meanings in Gaelic , routes, or even being on some of some smaller hills but Quinag is one(3) you won't

Agree with this, but the classic circuit from Glen Trool, over Benyellary, Merrick, Mullwharchar, Dungeon Hill and Craignaw is a superb route, arguably the finest in the south of Scotland and will give you, 1 Corbett, 2 Grahams, and
(most importantly) 5 Donalds.

Agreed Tinto, did that last Sunday, with the exception of mullwharchar. Grand.

The Creach Bheinn, Fuar Bheinn and Beinn na Cille round mentioned above is outstanding. Do it.

If you are looking for a leg stretch, the Auch Five behind Tyndrum is good, though they are all Corbetts. As ever jmarkb is a mine of good suggestions, and you'll take a while to crack them all. He is also right about Tralvall, though if you are finding it hard to get to remoter Munros, you'll find it even harder to get to Rum.

Thanks for the input folks, particularly jmarkb, that's a list that will take a bit of digesting :).

Was up Bheula and Lochain yesterday with some of the outlier peaks to make a circuit. A reminder that climbs starting from sea loch level are always hard, but an excellent day out.

Belig and Garbh bheinn on Skye are good. Thought jmarkb had them, but unusually not.
