Loch na Creige Duibhe is a small freshwater loch in South Morar, Lochaber, in the West Highlands of Scotland. It is orientated east to west and drains into Loch Màma to the west. It is thought that Loch Màma and Loch na Creige Duibhe were at one time a single loch. Debris brought down by the Allt Dearg stream has likely caused the lochs to be separated into two bodies of water.

The loch was surveyed on 11 July 1902[2] by James Parsons and T.R.H. Garrett and later charted[3] as part of the Sir John Murray and Laurence Pullar's Bathymetrical Survey of Fresh-Water Lochs of Scotland 1897-1909.
