Glen Brittle Memorial Hut

The Glen Brittle Memorial Hut

The Glen Brittle Memorial Hut is superbly located on the edge of the Cuillin on the island of Skye. This makes it a great location for those wishing to walk or climb in this inspiring mountain playground.

Jointly owned by the BMC and Mountaineering Scotland, the hut is administered by a management trust which reports to both councils. Probably uniquely, the hut is also a War Memorial having been built to commemorate those mountaineers who lost their lives in service during wartime.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Glen Brittle Memorial Hut will be closed from March 20th 2020. This closure will be reviewed at the end of April and thereafter on a monthly basis.

The hut is open all year round and is wardened from April - October, and can be booked by Individual and Club members of the BMC and Mountaineering Scotland.

The hut has spaces for 18 persons, and includes a kitchen, showers and drying room.

Behind the scenes: huts

Continuing our look at the work of BMC volunteers supporting our specialist committees. A small but very dedicated and knowledgeable group of volunteers make up the BMC Huts Group. With two key focuses – namely supporting clubs who own or operate mountain huts, and supporting the three national huts – the work the group gets involved with is wide ranging.

A sunny outlook for club huts?

The BMC Huts Group recently completed a survey of mountain huts run by affiliated clubs, with the aim of collecting up-to-date information which may be of use to hut managers and management committees. The results are discussed in more detail in the report below, but the overall conclusions are that many huts are on a sound financial footing and that plenty of huts have improvements either recently completed or scheduled for the near future.
