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 19 - Loch Earn to Tummel

Great day again!
24 mile road bike into a very strong easterly wind from Loch Earn to Crieff then the Sma' Glen - 2 hours, including draughting a combine harvester for 5 miles!
A huge lunch of pasta pies, doughnuts, cakes and ice cream, before mtb 15 miles down Glen Almond now with a big tail wind, picking of Achnfree Hill in only 50 mins! Took time to read all the wee info plaques in the glen on the way, before bashing the other 2 tops (sorry, cant remember the names at mo) both in an hour each, then a fantastic whizz down to Loch Tay to find Brenda sitting cumfy in a deck chair with drink and book in hand! A quick drink and bite then off on the road bike once more for the final 14 miles to the Lime Kilns on the Loch Tummel road, with that deadly climb to the top as a sting in the tail.
Knackered but well pleased.
Lovely dinner and good company at Davy & Christine Duncans in Aberfeldy for the night.

Well done Brenda sounds like you're doing great with the van!

Keep going Manny - my mum's decided that if you do this then all the Corbetts should be called Mannys :)

Tremendous indeed !

This blog is now becoming my nightly obsession.

I agree, WHEN you complete offical renaming should occur.

Cheers and aw the best for the remainder of the week.
