Cnoc Coinnich in Argyll becomes a new Corbett

Cnoc Coinnich – a hill on the Ardgoil Estate between Loch Goil and Loch Long in Argyll – has been promoted to Corbett status.

The hill, whose previous height of 761m meant that it was one of the highest Grahams, has been resurveyed by Graham Jackson and John Barnard, with the support of the Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC). They found the height to be 762.5m which means that the hill now joins the list of Corbetts – reportedly confirmed by the SMC. The new height has also been accepted by the Ordnance Survey.

The hill lies across a bealach from the neighbouring Corbett of the Brack – a pass which is used by the Cowal Way. Cnoc Coinnich makes a fine round in combination with the Brack, and can be easily climbed from the bealach using the Cowal Way from either Ardgartan or Lochgoilhead.
