This Sunday (September 30th) will see the start of work to repair a mountain both in Scotland.
Cruib Bothy on the isle of Jura is set for a makeover including a repainting of the front wall, the creation of a new sleeping platform and bunks, the enhancement of the fireplace and the building of ceilings in the two main rooms.
Such developments should make a stay more comfortable for those who like to go walking
in the area and choose to use the building as a place to rest overnight before resuming their adventures.
The work party is scheduled to complete the task on Sunday October 14th.
Walkers on the island can enjoy climbing among the Paps of Jura, which includes the Corbett of Beinn an Oir (2,576 ft), along with the Grahams of Beinn a' Chaoliais (2,405 ft) and Beinn Shiantaidh (2,484 ft).
The island has a second both at Glengarrisdale, although this is in the north of the island, the opposite end from the Paps.
