Moir's hut is an old and dilapidated pyramid shaped-wooden hut that is located on the Shira plateau of mount Kilimanjaro.

The hut was one of the first ever built for accommodation on the mountain, but is no longer used anymore.

It now bears a lot of names ("XX was here") on the inside that were left by the many Kilimanjaro climbers that have visited the place.
