Help save Glen Licht House

Glen Licht House is superbly located amongst the Five Sisters of Kintail in the Scottish Highlands. It is in desperate need of a new roof following storm damage. Find out more about the hut and how to help below.

Glen Licht House is a locked bothy operated by Edinburgh University Mountaineering Club. As well as being available for members of the University Club, it is also available for hire to walkers and climbers wanting to stay in this fantastic mountain location.

The hut roof was severely damaged during the fierce winter storms in 2012-13, and is now in danger of becoming completely derelict unless urgent repairs are conducted.

The club are making an appeal for donations and to raise awareness, in the hope that this great hut can be saved for future generations.
