On Sunday 29th August 2010, Peter and I bagged Meall a'Bhuiridh and then Creise, starting from the Ski Centre at Glencoe.

The climb up Meall a'Bhuiridh follows the horrid track under the ski tow. The descent from Meall a Bhuiridh and the ascent to Creise is the highlight. A nice bit of hands on (unexposed) scrambling at the very end!

The day just got better and better as did the photographs! A great pair of hills.

A nice photostop on the road up to the Glencoe Ski centre - Blackridge cottage and Buachaille Etive Mor

Looking back to Meall a Bhuiridh from Creise - what a hill from this angle!
