Great news. The last time I was there winter climbing, I had to dig the snow out to get inside and then sleep on a snowy pallet - brilliant adventure. It's such a great bothy, it's remoteness keeps the crowds away and it's barely visible in when you know where it is. Well done Mountain Bothies Association - superb work!!
I think the main reason should be that it's a cool wee structure that deserves to stay and be used by some folk. It always seems wrong to push the emergency situation angle, as we all know how difficult these places can be to find in really bad weather.
