Welcome to the web site for the Glen Brittle Memorial Hut. The Hut is situated close to the Cuillins in a sheltered glen to the south west of the Ridge. The path to Sgurr Dearg and the “Inn Pin “ starts at the Hut and other parts of the Cuillin Ridge may be accessed easily. The situation is superb yet accessed by road. For those wishing less challenging terrain, Loch Brittle beach is nearby and there are excellent coastal walks often shared with Sea Eagles, Peregrine Falcons and many other birds of interest. The Hut is a fine site for sea kayaking, either to launch at the beach (3Km). Or for an overnight stay.
The Hut is open all year to members of clubs affiliated with the BMC or Mountaineering Scotland or to individual members of these organisations. For those using one of the many, excellent,local guides, the Hut is a convenient meeting place. Children are very welcome.
Visitors are encouraged to be self-sufficient, especially in the winter and to take care of the premises. Mobile phone reception is not available and is unreliable in the mountains. There is now a land line telephone in the Hut: 01478 640 216. This is free of charge but donations are encouraged.
A major programme of refurbishment has been completed with new showers, drying room, kitchen and addition of gas for cooking and heating.
