South-east of Etive Mor and Glen Etive, Creise is the highest point on a north-south ridge with rugged shoulders stretching in most directions.

Most often bagged with its slightly higher neighbour, Meall a' Bhuiridh, the most direct route heads up well defined paths from Glencoe Ski Resort. An alternative is to approach from Glen Etive hiking over Beinn Mhic Chrasgaig, which has the advantage of avoiding crowds of Glencoe Ski Resort.

The finest route however starts from Victoria Bridge and combines Creise and Meall a' Bhuiridh with Stob Ghabar and Stob a'Choire Odhair. This linear route on crests and ridges finishes at Glencoe Ski Resort, where a walk back along a section of the West Highland Way returns to the start.
