This is a new meet venue for the Cioch, selected to permit a visit to the Xmas meet area, a bit earlier in the year when the days are longer with an improved chance of favourable weather.

North Ballachulish is an excellent base for hill walkers, within easy striking range of the Mamores to east, Nevis range north and Glencoe & Glen Etive hills nearby south. With the extra hours of daylight to play with, in reality all the hills in the South West Highlands are reasonably close. For those looking for a low level day, there are excellent lower level walks on the WHW, in Glen Nevis or perhaps the Hidden Valley in Glencoe (if you can  find it).

No bed linen is supplied by the hut, so sleeping bags are required. This hut is a 20 minute walk from the Loch Leven Hotel restaurants and bar in the village, so there is at least one option to eat out locally. We have reserved all 16 beds. Upstairs: 2 rooms with 3 beds, and 2 rooms with Alpine platforms. Downstairs: small room with 1 bed. Mattresses are provided. The hut facilities are described; Cooker with oven & grill, a separate grill and a separate hob/4 hotplates, microwave, 2 toasters, 2 refrigerators (no freezer), cooking & dining utensils, hot & cold running water, two showers & toilets, drying room. Electric storage heaters on the ground floor, additional manually controlled heater in the lounge. Dormitories; electric convector heaters with coin meters (£1 or £2 coins).
