    Creag Dubh hill and cliffs near to Newtonmore. Photo by Tom MacDonald, 1/11/2015. These cliffs provide superb rock climbing and a place visited frequently by myself over the years, the hill summit itself provides a outstanding viewpoint to the Monadhliath mountains to the north.

    Ryvoan Bothy.

    Ryvoan Bothy sits to the north of the main Cairngorm and is said to be a great "beginners bothy".  A single room will sleep four comfortable on the sleeping bench and as many more as you care to pack on the floor – possibly a dozen wouldn’t be unreasonable.

      The fire remodelled to burn less fuel a few years ago and throw out more heat. Many of the drafts which once assailed visitors have now were cured too.

      The Ryvoan name comes from Ruighe a Bhothain, or Sheil of the Bothy – was formerly a farm, with the building at least twice as long as it is now. The farm was abandoned in 1877 and not worked after that time, although in the first part of the 20th century it survived as a single room with wooden floor and lining.A byre stood at the western gable (the end looking back towards Glen More) but this was demolished or had collapsed by the 1960s and, according to the late Irvine Butterfield, it was the legendary Creag Dubh Climbing Club who saved the whole building from ruin by protecting the exposed gable with the collapsed corrugated iron roofing from the byre

    In 1972 maintenance was taken over by the Mountain Bothies Association and the future of the building secured. For many years it had a reputation for drafts and cold, but a lot of work over recent years has made considerable improvement to the quality of accommodation.

    It's not too far from the road, about two or three miles and an easy walk from Loch Morlich.
