CIC Hut Update

The SMC have recently issued a note on the CIC Hut as follows:

“As you may be aware, the CIC Hut sustained significant damage to the roof during the recent exceptional weather. A large area of roof cladding on the Allt a’Mhuillin side of the original building has been lost. It is hoped that a weather window may emerge in early January to enable materials to be flown up to effect a temporary repair with more permanent work taking place in the spring.

There has been some water ingress to the interior but fortunately not enough to render the premises wholly unusable. Occupation numbers will however have to be restricted until the temporary repairs take place.”
