National huts

Mountaineering Scotland and the BMC share responsibility for two huts in Scotland.

These are the Alex MacIntyre Memorial Hut (AMMH) at Onich, near Glen Coe and the Glen Brittle Memorial Hut (GBMH) near the Cuillin on Skye. A third hut, Mill Cottage near Feshiebridge in the Cairngorms, is owned by an independent trust set up by Mountaineering Scotland.

These huts are available for the use of Mountaineering Scotland and British Mountaineering Council affiliated clubs, and individual members. You can find out more about each hut by clicking on the links below.

Alex MacIntyre Memorial Hut

Situated in Onich, on the A82 between Glen Coe and Fort William, it makes an ideal base for both areas

Glen Brittle Memorial Hut

Located at the lower end of Glen Brittle, it's ideally situated for exploring the Black Cuillin of Skye

Mill Cottage

Its location near Feshie Bridge gives access to both the Cairngorms and the Monadhliath

Trustees of the AMMH and GBMH include ex officio elected office bearers of Mountaineering Scotland and the BMC. The huts are managed by separate management committees which report to the two councils. Their annual reports are lodged with Mountaineering Scotland. Two elected Mountaineering Scotland office bearers are ex officio members of the the Mill Cottage Trust. The trust uses surplus income to support mountain safety education.
