The Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC) have posted a short message on their website:
'Due to storm damage the CIC Hut will be closed until 20th January. We hope to issue weekly bulletins on this situation.'
Recent high winds have damaged the roof of the hut, which stands in an exposed position under the northern crags of Ben Nevis. The CIC is one of five huts owned by the SMC and open to members of other clubs.
The stormy weather is set to continue through the coming weekend.
