Easy walk in to a lovely, clean, well maintained Bothy.

Great stove in there and fire started very easily.

Stopped in there for an hour for a brew and to read a book.

Then decided very late in the day to head up Ben Vane, Tricky from this side as it's steep and un pathed.

Had a great time, lots of snow, no view at the top!
