Creignish is positioned on the western side of Cape Breton Island, on the eastern shores of the scenic St. Georges Bay. Creignish is also a member of Inverness County. It is likely that Creignish derives its name from a town in Scotland of the same name. One of the first settlers to arrive at the land where Creignish rests now was Duncan MacDonald, who arrived here in 1798. A noteworthy resident of Creignish is fiddle player Ashley MacIsaac. Creignish is situated 15.5 km (9.6 mi.) northwest of the town of Port Hawkesbury.
