Our full membership subscription is £25 per year. A reduced rate of £15 applies to junior members (under 16), the unwaged and to all members aged 65 and over.

The membership year runs from 1 January to 31 December. However, if you join on or after 1 July, your fee in the first year is approximately 50% of the full year amount. While our preferred method of payment is by electronic means, we understand that some may wish to pay by cheque. If paying this way, please remember to post your cheque to the membership office as soon as possible after you have submitted your online Join form. Please note that it could take around two weeks between submitting an application to join the MBA and receiving the membership pack.

Life membership is available, please contact our membership office for details. An online voucher for Life membership can also be purchased from our shop.

The purpose of membership is to support the maintenance work of the MBA- your subscription enables us to buy the materials to repair the bothies and to run the association. Members receive a copy of the Members Handbook, a quarterly Newsletter, which contains MBA News, bothy related stories and notification of planned work parties and projects, and the Annual Report and Review. Some members help keep our bothies in good condition by joining work parties and others help in administrative roles. However, all members support the open bothy concept through their subscriptions and donations. All are valued whatever their contribution, but we do hope that you will be able to give us some of your time.
