Club Huts and Accomodation
One of the constraints of using mountaineering club huts is that you are a member of the BMC or Mountaineering Scotland, previously MCofS. This is necessary due to the requirement for 3rd Party Insurance. Strawberry Cottage is insured separately and such membership is not a requirement for staying there.
