Corrie Fee is a beautiful glaciated bowl surrounded by towering crags. The Fee Burn cascades down the back wall, then meanders across the flat corrie floor before dropping through woodlands to Glen Doll. The corrie faces east, so the winter sun barely enters and snow and ice linger here, attracting walkers and ice climbers. The Corrie Fee National Nature Reserve is home to many rare sub-arctic plant species. Forestry roads lead through Glen Doll to Corrie Fee and a good path leads through the corrie and up the back wall to the plateau. Many walkers use this path to reach Mayar and Driesh, two nearby Munros, but very few venture off it.

This walk takes you off the path and along the crags on the northern rim of the corrie to Craig Rennet, a spectacular viewpoint overlooking Corrie Fee and Glen Doll. Immediately after leaving the path, two small streams are easily crossed, then a grass-covered slope climbs towards the crags. There is no path along the crags but in good weather the walking is not difficult, crossing a sloping, grassy band between peaty moorland on the left and seriously steep crags on the right. Many red deer frequent the plateau and a faint deer track may be found along the top of the crags.

The return route retraces the outward route. Although the walk is not difficult in good weather, at all times be aware of the steep drops into the corrie. The highlight of the route is the view, so do not attempt it in poor weather conditions.
