Hutchinson's Memorial Hut

This was probably my all time favourite bothy visit. It is far too much to write about in one go due to all the bothy tales and mountain poetry told by three veteran mountaineers...

recordings and text to follow soon.....

"The Hutchison Memorial Hut was built in 1954 with kind permission of the Trustees of the late Duke of Fife as a mountain refuge in Coire Etchachan at a height of about 2,500 feet. Its erection was made possible by funds subscribed by friends of the late Dr A G Hutchison of Aberdeen, who was killed in a climbing accident in Pembrokeshire in 1949. The construction was carried out by W J Brown builders of Aberdeen with assistance in transport of materials etc from members of local climbing clubs and others." (M.B.A)
