    Ryvoan is a classic Scottish bothy, a haven on the open ground beyond the Ryvoan Pass. It's a popular shelter too, being relatively easy to access from Glen More.

    There's a beautiful poem on the door by AM Lawrence, a poet from Burgh by Sands in Cumbria. The piece is called 'I Leave Tonight from Euston' and encapsulates the thrill of leaving civilisation to seek out wild places, such as those we find in the Cairngorms.

  • Really cool bothy that you can stay in overnight for free. It's great to read the book from guests that have visited. Please leave it as you found it... "respect the bothy, respect other users" maintained by Mountain Bothies Association. mountainbothies.org.uk/bothies/eastern-highlands/ryvoan
