A flourish of flowers
The magnificent amphitheatre of Corrie Fee – together with Corrie Sharroch and the slopes of Craig Rennet – form Corrie Fee National Nature Reserve (NNR). The reserve is home to many plants, birds and animals adapted to this harsh mountain environment. You might spot a golden eagle soaring overhead.
Corrie Fee is well known for the rare plants growing on its cliffs and in gullies, like Alpine blue-sowthistle. Mountain plants, such as purple saxifrage, yellow mountain saxifrage and globeflower, grow alongside more lowland species, including red campion, wild angelica and melancholy thistle. Corrie Fee also has the most extensive natural stand of montane willow scrub in Scotland.
Walk up the Fee Trail to the edge of the forest to enjoy views of this natural amphitheatre. Or take a full day to explore the corrie, its fabulous waterfall and even the plateau or Munros beyond. There is plenty to explore and enjoy at Corrie Fee.
