CIC hut, Ben Nevis in 1975
The hut was built in 1928-29 by the Scottish Mountaineering Club as a memorial to Charles Inglis Clark who died in the First World War, son of William and Jane Inglis Clark, both prominent mountaineers at the turn of the 20th century. It has been extended over the years and is available for accommodation by members of mountaineering clubs, though bookings are needed well in advance and it is not open to the public. NN1672 : CIC Hut, Ben Nevis, in 1975 shows the hut on a subsequent visit later in the same month. Its history and much more is given in ‘Ben Nevis – Britain’s Highest Mountain’ by Ken Crocket, SMC Trust 1986.
