The problem with these isolated open shelters is there's not usually anywhere to "go" and the area round about gets a bit polluted. The National Trust for Scotland has taken this on at Corrour and provided a composting toilet. It's best to leave the door open if it's not in use, though. Despite being one of the most isolated houses in the country, the bothy gets regular use from passing walkers (there were at least a dozen in small groups the day I took this picture) and from those staying overnight and breaking their journey through the Lairig Ghru. It originated as a deer watcher's house. No loo then, though.
