Unique Eco-Cabins in the Highly Popular Tourist Area of Glenfinnan



The Hotel + Leisure division of UK Property Firm Graham + Sibbald are delighted to bring to the market Back Track Bothies, at Glenfinnan – For Sale.

Back Track Bothies offers three hand crafted eco-cabins, nestled in the village of Glenfinnan in the heart of the Wester Highlands of Scotland. The approximately half-acre site among native woodland close to the shore of Loch Shiel and just a stone’s throw from the famous Glenfinnan viaduct and the monument commemorating the Jacobite Rising of 1745.

As well as the Jacobite steam train made famous, appearing as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter movies, the area offers a host of attractions with the Bothies providing a truly unforgettable stay in a very popular location.

Each of the hand-built bothies offer a warm cosy atmosphere, with their own unique character and individual layouts. Constructed by a local master craftsman from natural materials, including sustainably sourced Douglas Fir timber and sheep’s wool insulation, as well as living grass roofs, each eco-cabin offers a sitting area with kitchen, a sleeping area, a shower and a bespoke composting loo.

Back Track Bothies offers a great business opportunity for right buyer to build upon the already stellar reputation and frequent return guests. It is evident the current owners have invested much passion and financial resources into these unique assets and as they move onto pastures new, they leave behind a fantastic business.

Peter Seymour, a Director with Graham + Sibbald, commented, “We are delighted to bring to the market Back Track Bothies. We have seen a steady shift towards Green tourism and expect this market to continue to grow in popularity as people become more aware of their carbon footprints. Glenfinnan is a highly popular tourist destination because of its outstanding landscape, its history and, of course, the famous Viaduct which features in all of the Harry Potter films. The sellers have decided that now is the time to move onto other projects, leaving behind a well presented and highly profitable business for the next owner to enjoy.”

Back Track Bothies owners, Mark and Ally Entwistle, commented, “Creating these eco-cabins was a labour of love for us. We had a dream of how they would look and feel and we worked closely with our carpenter and builder to ensure every single detail was just right.

We only opened just over two years ago and have been blown away by how popular the bothies have proved to be and how successful a business model they are.

We have some other dreams we still wish to pursue and, whilst we are putting Back Track Bothies up for sale much earlier than we originally envisaged, it feels like the right time to allow a new owner to develop and grow the business as they would want.”

Graham + Sibbald are inviting offers in the region of “475,000” for the heritable interest.
