Huts Opening Update - 01/10/2021

From 1 October 2021 Lagangarbh hut will be available for booking by fully vaccinated members of MS/BMC affiliated clubs. To allow safe distancing and reduce the covid risk the hut capacity will be reduced to 10 places for 1 group or a maximum of 2 groups. To allow a 24-hour fallow period between groups, weekend bookings are available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Midweek bookings are available for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The hut will be closed and empty Monday and Thursday nights. All hut users are expected to carefully follow the covid mitigation measures notified on confirmation of booking. These measures will be reviewed before New Year.

About Lagangarbh

Lagangarbh Hut is situated north of Buachaille Etive Mor near the River Coupall. It is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and has been occupied and maintained by the Club since 1946. It was extensively refurbished in 1994.

Getting there

Parking for the hut depends on the state of the track leading off south from the A82 at Altnafeadh. If this track is not navigable by car, park in the layby on the opposite (north) side of the A82. Follow the track to the River Coupall, take the footbridge and follow the subsequent path -briefly- to the hut.

The hut was originally a crofting home, typically with central entrance hall and stairs ahead, two rooms up and down, left and right. The roofing is still the local Ballachulish slate which covered much of Scottish housing. The walls are of thick stone, built to withstand the battering of gales. The Club planted a shelter belt of trees to the west, from whence roar in the prevailing south-westerlies.
