Corbetts for Courses: Mountain Aid's May 2019 Fundraising Initiative

Meall a'Bhuachaille

Mountain Aid, the hillwalker's charity that promotes mountain safety, has announced a fund raising event that it hopes will put a hillwalker on the summits of all 222 Corbetts in May. (For those who don't know a Corbett is a  Scottish mountain between 2,500–3,000 feet (762.0–914.4 m) in height with a drop of 500 feet (152.4 m) or more between it and the next summit). The fund raising is to enable Mountain Aid to continue its programme of free skills training and safety lectures.

This is an excellent venture and I've signed up to climb Meall a'Bhuachaille - which probably won't look as snowy in May as it does above!

This is how to get involved:

Join the Mountain Aid Corbetts4Courses Facebook group (or contact them by email)
Choose a Corbett (there’s 222 of them)
Post your chosen Corbett to the Facebook group (or email Mountain Aid)
Climb your Corbett during May and share your summit photo to the group (or email it to Mountain Aid who will post it for you)
Make a donation to Mountain Aid (£10 is suggested but please give what you can).
