Bothy restoration project begins

They can be one of the most welcoming of sights to a walker lost on Scotland's hills but many of our bothies are in need of an upgrade.

The Mountain Bothies Association has begun a programme of repairs on some of the worst kept refuges.

A work party began restoration at a much-used emergency shelter in a remote corner of the Cairngorms.

BBC Scotland's Kevin Keane went along to the Hutchison memorial hut near Ben Macdui.
