Inver is undergoing a series of improvements. The refurbished lounge and kitchen are now complete (2006). A solar powered electric lighting and water purification system has been installed (2007). A second toilet has been built in the byre, next to the drying room and the overflow sleeping area (2008).
In an unrelated development, some of the
former occupants from its days as a shepherd's cottage recently revisited and confirmed the
proper title to be Inver Croft House.
In 1989 the club leased a derelict croft. Club members renovated it during the following year, providing an ideal base from which to explore the North West Highlands.
More on the history of Inver.
Club members continue to maintain and improve the Inver, with at least two work-meets per year.
Use by Club Members
The club organises a meet at the hut approximately every two months as well as the Easter and New Year holidays. Members are encouraged to book the croft for themselves and guests at other times - there are always four spaces reserved for members, even when there is an external booking. Hut fees are now included in the club subscription for JMC members and are £6 for their guests.
Other MCofS or BMC affiliated clubs can book between 10 and 14 places in the hut at a rate of £6pppn. Contact the Hut Custodian for more details.
Situation and Access
Inver is located about one and a half miles from Achnasheen, near Torridon in the NW Highlands
map). There is a large layby for parking , and the croft is a five minute walk across a footbridge and a raised walkway. Yeti gaiters or wellies can be handy in very wet weather.
Inver has basic sleeping accomodation, and well equipped kitchen and dining facilities.
See separate page for more on hut facilities.
Please note that our lease states that fires and camping are not allowed outside the hut.
Inver is close to some of the finest walking and climbing in Scotland. Torridon is a short drive away, and there
is plenty of good walking and climbing further down Glen Carron.
