Long Distance Records
Corbetts of SW Scotland
Traditionally a winter challenge (snow down to Loch Enoch), the 27 mile (7500 foa) route links Cairnsmore of Carsphairn, Corserine, Merrick, and Shalloch on Minnoch, starting from the Water of Ken and finishing at Stinchar Bridge. This was first achieved by Colin Brash and Ronald Turnbull in February 1995 (8 hours 2 mins). Paul McClintock and Glyn Jones subsequently reduced the record to 7 hours 42 mins on 24th February 1996.

Glyn describes the final descent from the snows of Shalloch on Minnoch: "On their left, horizontal snow was blowing from tattered clouds; on their right Lochs Macaterick and Riecawr emerged from the mist to stare with dour eyes from the brown and green land" [Ref: SHR 1/97].

Then, on 16th February 2001, Colin Butler and Duggie Gillespie further reduced the record to 7 hours and 5 mins [Ref: FR 6/01].
