/ Garbh Choire Bothy
I could be way off the mark with that though.

Cheers, It looks like i'll just have to go and see when I get there! No real up to date info, but I will just take the bivi anyway just in case.
I stayed there a couple of years ago. Ended up sleeping outside in my bivy bag as it was fairly squalid inside!
However for the immediate term, you would not be advised to rely on the Garbh Choire Refuge unless in dry weather. Even then, it's very small and not the most salubrious of shelters.
The Smith-Dey Bivouac is a 'shelter stone-type' bivvy in Garbh Choire Daidh, just below the ridge dividing GC Daidh from Garbh Choire Mhor. It sleeps two but is quite claustrophobic. Some nice campsites just below it though.
I thought that sounded familiar... they did that seven years ago and I submitted a wee response on behalf of the Moray Mountaineering Club, along the lines of "dunna be getting rid o that bothy"... I'd happily do the same again if they're looking for more responses.
I would be in favour of renovation, with removal a distant second. Status quo is pretty unacceptable - last time I passed the place it was a dump.
