Has anyone been to the bothy recently. Has the construction of the Beauly to Denny powerline affected the walk in? I want to go for a wee walk up to the bothy tomorrow but I dont want to go walking though a building site.

I walked in that way a month or so ago... The Beauly/Denny contractors have a working compound next to where the Corrieyairack track leaves the road and have built a lot of new machine tracks up into the hills that make the initial approach quite confusing and not particularly pleasant... There was quite a bit of work going on when I was there, even well up the hill... You do eventually escape the intrusion but not completely, even by the time you reach the bothy... The bothy itself is in a great location and in good condition...
