The Grey Corries from the north

The Grey Corries are a range of mountains in the west of Inverness-shire, amongst the Highlands. The range includes several of the highest peaks in the British Isles, including a number of Munros.

The range is bounded to the north by the great extent of Leanachan Forest beyond which is Glen Spean and the Great Glen, to the east by the defile of Lairig Leacach and to the south by upper Glen Nevis and the headwaters of the Abhainn Rath. The ridge continues westwards at a high level to join Aonach Beag, Aonach Mor, Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis.

From west to east, the principal peaks of the range are:

Stob Coire Gaibhre (3,143 feet) is to the north of the eastern end of the range whilst Stob Ban (3,205 feet) is to the south of the ridge's eastern end. A northern spur of Stob Coire Easain culminates in Beinn na Socaich (3,304 feet).
