Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
781 m (2562 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

Corryhabbie Hill lies on a ridge that runs from Carn an t-Suidhe (734m) in Glen Livet N to Muckle Lapprach (730m) where the ridge turns E to Corryhabbie Hill and continues NE with Morton's Way (a hill track) on its crest.

Whilst a vehicle track from the A941 in the NE does lead to the summit the shortest approach is from the N on the folded NW slopes.

Started the route for this hill at Elivreid Farm. There is no real parking as such for this hill, so one has to make use of the verges where a good one is just before Elivreid at a split in the road. The initial ascent is through argricultural fields before it becomes heathery slopes leading to the top of Hill of Achmore. It is then a case of following the broad undulating slopes up to the ridge. Be aware in poor weather as the hill is quite featureless. To return made a direct descent from the summit towards Knockanbeg, then followed the fields from earlier to get back to the car.
