To the east of the The Aonachs are a group of hill called The Grey Corries this classic ridge walk on rocky terrain takes in 3 of them. This is a long days outing. The majority of the ridge is very well defined so route finding should be fairly easy.

On a clear day the ridge walk offers excellent views of The Aonachs, Ben Nevis, Carn Mor Dearg on the west side, The Mamores on the south west & Stob Coire Easain on the east of this very mountainous part of the central highlands.
