You’ll need to bring equipment with you for cooking; sleeping bags and mats; and torches are essential in this International Dark Sky Reserve. The toilet/washroom is 100 metres from the bothy and next to the shop (bring your own loo roll). There is a car park 100m from the bothy (free to National Trust members). You can unload 40 metres from the bothy and take the well-maintained uphill path and steps.
