This route takes in The Grey Corries which is a very long ridge that extends east from the Aonoch Mor massive which includes three munros and nine Munro "Tops" giving a superb days walking. This route is a very long days outing with a long walk in and out. However, the drops between alot of the tops on the whole aren't large.

Once on the ridge there are good view of The Aonachs, Ben Nevis and pretty much every other hill in the area.
