HistoryFounded in 1965, the Mountain Bothies Association is a charity which exists to maintain remote buildings for which the owner has little or no use, With the permission and support of the owners, the shelters are unlocked and are available for anyone to use. The maintenance work along with the bulk of administration is carried out by volunteers. Each bothy in the care of the Association has one or more Maintenance Organisers who are responsible for arranging routine maintenance.All maintenance work is financed from our the Association's resources, mainly membership subscriptions supplemented by generous donations from benefactors, some of whom wish to commemorate a relative or friend who was a hillwalker or climber. The MBA maintains about 100 shelters in some of the remoter parts of the UK, mostly in Scotland with others in England and Wales.
