Buidhe Bheinn (885m, joint Corbett) – yellow hill
Sgurr a’ Bhac Chaolais (885m, joint Corbett) – peak of the hollow of the narrows
Two would-be Corbetts of exactly the same height connected by an interesting high-level ridge that dips only 122m between them. One of them only therefore can be a Corbett but no-one knows which one.
To claim the tick, baggers must do both of them. The best views are from Buidhe Bheinn. 15km, 1160m ascent.
A shorter day omits the traverse to the summit of Sgurr a’ Bhac Chaolais. 10km 999m ascent.
A possible extension to the day with an interesting excursion around these wild and remote glens. 16km, 1260m ascent.
Please note that walks may change at short notice due to conditions on the day and covid restrictions.
