Creise and Meall a'Bhuiridh from the Ski centre

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two Munros form the northeastern part the Black Mount range, rising above the head of Glen Etive opposite the better known Buachaille Etive Mor. This route ascends via the White Corries ski slopes. Meall a'Bhuiridh appears rather undistinguished seen from Rannoch Moor but its elegant west ridge is revealed from Creise, itself the high point of a dramatic ridge running from Sron na Creise in the north through Clach Leathad to Sron nam Forsair.


A straightforward Munro round in good conditions; there is some boggy ground. Rocky ground and boulderfields on the uppermost slopes of Meall a'Bhuiridh, and a steep rocky climb to the ridge of Creise.
