Book a mountain hut around Britain. As a BMC member you get exclusive access to our three huts.

Imagine a place that’s close to the best hills and crags in the area. A place to get clean and warm after a long day outdoors. To cook, sleep, and chat about the events of the day with people who are into the same adventures as you.

As a BMC member you get exclusive access to our three huts: Glen Brittle Memorial Hut on the Isle of Skye, the Don Whillans Memorial Hut at the Roaches and the Alex MacIntyre Memorial Hut in the Scottish Highlands. If you’re a member of a mountaineering club you may also have access to even more huts around the country.

National Huts

These iconic and historic buildings are there for you as a member to use and enjoy. Each hut is run by a management committee, with the two Scottish huts jointly funded and administered in partnership with Mountaineering Scotland. BMC members, both club and individual, can book places and check availability using each huts online booking system.

  • Alex MacIntyre Memorial Hut

    Situated in Onich, on the A82 between Glen Coe and Fort William, the Alex MacIntyre Hut makes an ideal base for both areas of Scotland.

  • Don Whillans Memorial Hut

    Located at The Roaches in Staffordshire, the Don Whillans Hut is a unique building, superbly located amongst the buttresses and boulders of this historic climbing area - you can almost belay from the hut!

  • Glen Brittle Memorial Hut

    Located at the lower end of Glen Brittle, the Memorial Hut is ideally situated for exploring the Black Cuillin on the Isle of Skye.

Club Huts

There are also many huts around Britain that can be used if you are a member of a mountaineering or climbing club.

Some club huts do allow non-club members to stay in their huts if you are a BMC member and there is space. It is worth reaching out to the club secretary and enquiring. You can find all the details in our hut finder list above. Often members of the clubs can bring guests who are not members of the club too.

Information about huts owned by Scottish clubs, including contact details, are found in the Mountaineering Scotland huts list.
