It is one of the most comfortable of our huts and the view out is a superb vista across Strath Spey to the Monadh Liath hills. The hut is centrally placed for the Cairngorms to the east, and the winter routes of Creag Meagaidh to the south-west. The rock climbing on both Creag Dubh, Newtonmore, and Binnein Shuas are also a short drive away.
