The lure of the countryside and all that it offers satisfies a deep
human urge to touch nature. ‘Hutting’ is a worldwide phenomenon,
increasing yearly as cities become more congested and restrictive. In
Scandinavian countries ‘huts’ exist in hundreds of thousands and in
the vast spaces of Canada in millions.
Carbeth as a hutting community has existed for 100 years and with
180 huts is the world’s largest single community owned hutting
organisation. It has a rich history directly related to industrial
Clydeside, the Blitzing of Clydebank and a diverse range of
organisation and movements.
Come and join the walk and talk round the estate and find out about
100+ years of hutting with tea and buns to follow in the Community
