- The author details the 221 Corbetts which exist in Scotland. These hills between 2500 and 2999 feet high are amongst the most popular and accessible since they are often a good afternoon's exercise as opposed to the generally more testing and trying Munros which are frequently situated in more extreme terrain. The book covers Scotland on a regional basis, usually around a town which is well suited to accommodating hillwalkers. These areas are: The Southern Uplands; Arrochar; Crianlarich, Tyndrum and Bridge of Orchy; Strathyre and Loch Earn; Rannoch and Glen Lyon; Killin; Etive and Glen Coe; Loch Trieg and Loch Ossian; Loch Ericht and Drumochter; Pitlochy, Tarff and Tilt; Cairnwell, Glenshee and Lochnagar; Norther Cairngorms; Southern Cairngorms; Glen Roy, Laggan and Monadhiliath; Loch Lochy; Loch Arkaig and Loch Eil; Ardgour, Moidart and Loch Sheil; Knoydart and Loch Quoich; Glen Sheil; Glen Affric and Strathfarar; Achnashellach, Torridon and Applecross; Dundonnell and Fisherfield; The Fannichs and Ullapool; Assynt and the Far North; The Islands. Gaelic pronunciations are given with Ordnance Survey references, ascent and descent times, maps and stalking information.
