The Grey Corries

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The Grey Corries is the long chain of mountains set to the east of the Nevis Range. Well seen from the popular viewpoint of the Commando Memorial near Spean Bridge, their summits are covered with the quartzite scree that gives these mountains their name. The traverse of the Grey Corries main ridge gives a long and demanding but superb mountain walk. The route as described takes in the main three Munros, leaving a fourth for a separate walk.


This route traverses rough, rocky and steep mountain ridges, narrow in places. The approach and descent have some pathless going on wet grassy and tussocky slopes.
