An MBA spokesman said, “The building has been used as an open shelter for a number of years and its owner was keen that it should continue to be available for use by walkers and cyclists. Its adoption by the MBA will ensure that this continues to be the case. We are grateful to the owner for agreeing that the MBA should assume responsibility for its future maintenance.”
Built from stone, the building has 3 rooms. Renovation has taken place over a number of months by volunteers and has included the installation of new flooring, wall cladding, ceilings and a sleeping area. As is usual with most bothies, toilet facilities are limited to a shovel.
The bothy can be found at grid reference NT 312000. More information can be found at the MBA website.
