welcome to the
Mountain Bothies Association
The Mountain Bothies Association is a charity which maintains about 100 shelters in some of the remoter parts of the UK.
With the permission and support of the owners, these shelters are unlocked and are available for anyone to use. All of our maintenance activities are carried out by volunteers. We welcome new members who want to support our work, either by attending work parties or by contributing financially through subscriptions and donations.
Most of the MBA bothies are in Scotland with others in England and Wales.
Never stayed at a bothy before? Have a look at our FAQ's.
Want to join a work party? See the Workparty Diary for a full list and details of our planned work parties over the coming months. We welcome all volunteers and you do not need to be a member of the MBA to join in.

Can you contribute to an MBA 50th anniversary book?
We are looking for stories about work parties, bothy trips, history of the buildings, as well as poems, line drawings, photographs and so on. See the Members Homepage for details about how you can contribute, or contact email@example.com
