Corrie Fee is a National Nature Reserve (NNR) at the head of Glen Clova in the Angus Glens of Scotland. It lies within the Cairngorms National Park. This is one of the most important sites for Arctic–alpine plants in Britain.[1] Corrie Fee itself is one of the best examples of a glacial corrie in the British Isles, with a natural amphitheatre of cliffs. The adjoining Corrie Sharroch and the slopes of Craig Rennet are also in the NNR.

Corrie Fee lies within Caenlochan Special Area of Conservation,[2] also designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Protection Area. Corrie Fee NNR is owned and managed by Scottish Natural Heritage.
