Meall a Bhuiridh & Creise Hike

The 3,635ft Meall a Bhuiridh and 3,609ft Creise are situated, 13 miles east of Glencoe village, 81 miles north of Glasgow.

Meall a Bhuiridh mountain is the first of the Glen Coe Munros when traveling northwest towards Glencoe village, where the Glencoe Mountain Resort is situated.

The first views of the mountain traveling north are on the left from the large Welcome To The Highlands sign on the A82 road, a good photo spot.

A few miles further on, you will see a blue sign, as in the image top, for the resort. This lay by at the sign also gives good views of the mountain, as seen second top. You can see the chair lifts running up onto the mountain from here.

The image top is looking west down the A82 through Glen Coe, with another 8 Munros either side of the road between here and Glencoe village.

The car park for this hike is at the resort. The Glasgow to Fort William & Skye bus drops off and picks up at the entrance to the resort, about half of a mile walk from the entrance to the resort.

You hike up the path below the chair lifts much of the way, then vere right for the rocky ridge to the top, avoiding a boggy section. There is a cafe at the car park, and two cafes up on the mountain.

The ridge between Meall a Bhuiridh & Creise is said to be fairly safe in summer, but can be dangerous with snow and ice in winter.

The resort has a few holiday cabins next to the car park, ideal if you are hiking a number of mountains in this area.

The Kings House Hotel is situated on the north side of the A82, good for meals and accommodation including a bunkhouse.

Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter, make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know how to use them.
