New Camasunary bothy now open

Volunteers from the Mountain Bothy Association have now completed work on a new bothy at Camasunary on the Isle of Skye. The building, which is now open for visitors, is on the east side of the bay at Camasunary about 1km from the previous MBA maintained bothy.


The MBA are very grateful to the owner, Alan Johnson, without whose generosity there would now have been no basic accommodation available in the area, and to 59 Commando Squadron Royal Engineers who constructed the building as a community project. The bothy was fitted out in memory of Neil (Bell) Mackenzie who lost his life in 2015 on Joffre Peak in Canada. They also thank all the MBA volunteers who turned out, sometimes in horrendous weather conditions, to prepare the site and fit out the building.
