New bothy opens on Jura
Bookmark and Share
Those who like to go walking in the remotest parts of Britain could be keen to take a trip to the isle of Jura, where a new bothy has been opened.

The Mountain Bothies Association has revealed that it has now taken control of the maintenance of a second bothy on the island, the old lodge at Cruib on the Ruantallain Estate.

A work party made the building wind and waterproof earlier this month and it means there is extra choice for walkers and mountain bikers on the Hebridean island.

The MBA has now included the Cruib Bothy in its directory and advises visitors to let the estate know their plans between July and February, when deer stalking takes place.

Cruib is towards the southern end of the island, while further north is Glengarrisdale, which is a permissive bothy not available during the peak stalking months of August to October.

The Cruib bothy lies nearer the Paps of Jura, a small mountain range on the island consisting of one Corbett (Beinn an Oir) and two Grahams (Beinn a' Chaolais and Beinn Shiantaidh).
