Curran Shelter is the (demolished) mountain refuge shelter on the south shore of Lochan Féith Buidhe.
The photograph shows the Curran Shelter in February 1975 looking roughly north-west.
The Curran Shelter is sometimes called the Curran Bothy, but unlike Corrour Bothy it was not built by the estate as employee accommodation, and wasn't a true bothy in that sense.
The Curran Shelter was built without any consent in 1967 - in Duff (2001) the author refers to its recent construction - writing :
Back in Braemar, on my first trip up Ben Macdhui, I discovered that a large bothy had been built beside the Lochan Buidhe. This was no rudimentary shelter, but a large metal construction, twelve feet by seven feet inside, covered over with boulders
- Duff (2001) (p82)
Its existence was implicated in the deaths of 6 teenagers in the nearby Féith Buidhe in November 1971. Those deaths lent weight to the argument favouring the removal of the high-level mountain refuge shelters in the Cairngorms.
In June 1975 both the Curran Shelter, and the St. Valery Shelter were demolished, and removed from the Ben Macdui - An Carn Gorm plateau.
