This blog describes Manny Gorman's successful round of all 219 Corbetts in 70 days, in one continuous journey by running, cycling and sailing.

Manny's 70 Day Schedule

The Corbetts are Scottish hills between 2,500 and 3,000ft, with at least 500ft ascent on all sides.

Day 7 - Arran awaits...

After three days waiting on Arran for Manny I had to return to the mainland today. Fortunately I had combined the trip with a couple of days of long-overdue work there, so the trip wasn't wasted. The weather was a mixture of utterly fowl and gorgeous, and during one of the gorgeous stretches I had a truly memorable run along Glen Rosa and up Cir Mhor. What a superb mountain it is. I hope he enjoys it as much as I did.
I left a wee message on top, and will quiz him on the contents to check he went to the top!
