Creise

Creise is a Scottish mountain that stands at the eastern end of Glen Coe, just to the south of the A82 road, some 26 kilometres South-southeast of Fort William in the Highland Council area. The mountain was previously known as Clach Leathad (Stony Slope) in the Munro Tables prior to 1981, its name being changed to Creise when the highest point was found to be 1200 metres further north along the summit ridge when using new mapping techniques.
