    For the first time in years I can't afford to go off to Mull and sit in a self catering old croft for a week in front of a log fire, this picture just reminds of those silent nights sat in by the fire reading. Lovely!

    those bothies sound like dangerous places guess they would be ideal places for outlaws to hang out in...

    imagine you're having a lovely holiday and you get your throat cut or something ?

    Can anyone tell me what bothies are like in winter? I was thinking about using Bob Scotts as a base for some winter hills in the Cairngorm. Is wood available in the winter or is it all soggy with the weather and/or covered with snow? Also can anyone tell me if Bob Scotts is ok or is it a drinking den for neds? I've been inside but only in daylight when its been empty.

    Cammy, Look for the most remote areas,ones with no bike access prefarably, you should have a real quiet time. The other important thing is , when you do, keep the location to yourself. Not always kindling provided but usually its nearby, after all the origonal occupants needed fire, same as water is always nearby..

    I am in possesion of a comprehensive list of all bothies in Scotland, England and Wales. Not just MBA bothies but even obscure non-MBA bothies too. It contains GR's and everything. It was given to me by a friend. Unfortunately it doesnt list wee dry stanehowffs. If anyone wants any info on it then I can supply it.

    Hutchison memorialhut :- smallish, basic, has a table and benches, no fireplace, not one for a cold night really, but in a good high mountain area.

    Bob Scotts:- Very warm bothy, has a good stove, and walls are well insulated, lots of fallen wood nearby in a wood, can be busy at weekends, so you take your chance on who is there, endless possible camping spots in that area.
