Corrie Fee in Glen Doll at the head of Glen Clova, is a truly special nature reserve, famed for its rare and beautiful wild alpine and artic plants. Carved during the ice age, this beautiful glen provides a safe haven not only for plants, but also for the largest number of Ptarmigan per hectare anywhere in the world. The craggy outcrops provide the perfect habitats for Peregrine Falcons and Golden Eagles. Best time to see the alpine plants is between mid June and mid August, but the scenery is stunning all the time.
