Most on here will be more than familiar with the Grey Corries. Rather than repeat what has been written, I will just add that this was one of the best walks I have ever done. A fantastic day out, in what was eventually, superb weather. I am glad I went the extra mile and took in Stob Ban first, would recommend this way, as it hides the Corries ridge from you until you summit Stob Choire Claurigh.
