Tin Tabernacles and other Corrugated Iron Buildings in Scotland
By James Carron
Corrugated iron is a common sight in industrial and agricultural buildings. Less common are the tin tabernacles, mission halls, hospitals, schools, houses and cottages constructed during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Derided by some, overlooked by others, those that remain standing to this day are legacy to a branch of architecture that dared to be different.

Bothies are basic shelters in remote corners of the countryside. Scotland has a long tradition of 'bothying' and, while the better known ones are easily found, one of the great pleasures of exploring the nation's mountains and glens is stumbling upon one for the first time - and finding the door open. This guide takes some of the guesswork out of the equation, listing unlocked habitable shelters, ranging from comfortable, well-equipped bothies suitable for overnight stays to simple wooden huts and howffs offering protection from the elements, a place to break for lunch or a bolthole in an emergency.
