MBA Archive Collection

The MBA archive is held at the A K Bell Library in Perth. The collection includes copies of Journals, Newsletters, minutes of meetings, reports on some early projects, photographs of bothies and work parties etc. It is open to view by any member of the public. Contact details for the Library and a full list of the MBA material that is currently held are on their website; if you intend to visit it is best to phone in advance to let them know when you are coming and any particular document that you are interested in seeing.


These articles, many of which have previously been published in the MBA’s quarterly newsletter, tell more about the history of our bothies – and those who once lived in them – as well as of bothying and the MBA.

The following were compiled by Richard Genner specifically for the MBA website.   They are all pdf files which require Adobe Acrobat to open.
