Those who complete (compleat!) the Corbetts can record this fact and receive the magic number by writing in to The Clerk of The List. Additionally, a list of current compleaters is published annually in the SMC Journal.
Beinn Tirran - 3 June 2015
I completed the Munros recently and am now registered as Munroist 5734. On the same day, with a visit to the Glen Clova Inn in between, I completed the Corbetts with a visit to Beinn Tirran. Both summits in the company of Peter MacDonald, and David Somerville, with whom many enjoyable days on the hill have been spent.
The round of the Munros was commenced in 1947 at the age of 8, along with my father Jim (SMC). The first Corbett topped was Beinn Rinnes or Ben Ledi, both in 1951 although Mount Blair (2441ft) was climbed in January 1947. This makes the Munro round 68 years, and the Corbett round 64 years, with completion of both on 3rd June 2015.
