Full description


With the mention of Loch Lomond and the West Highland Way there can be no question of an immediate recognition and appeal. The Inversnaid Bunkhouse and Top Bunk Restaurant being less than half a mile from the West Highland Way and the eastern shores of Loch Lomond ensures a popular draw not only for the "legions" of walkers who trek the West Highland Way but also other visitors in the locality seeking an informal dining experience in characterful surroundings.

The Inversnaid Bunkhouse and Top Bunk Bistro have been converted from a 19th century church cleverly retaining some of the original features including stained glass and vaulted ceilings, with the bunk rooms at ground floor level and the restaurant on the upper floor. More recently added, in 2012, is the separate log cabin which provides a mix of accommodation suitable for letting or for use by owners and/or staff..

Loch Lomond with its worldwide recognition and reputation needs no introduction and the Inversnaid Bunkhouse is located to the east, at the north end, of this famed and romantic stretch of water in the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Set amongst the rolling hills of West Stirlingshire arriving at Inversnaid - where the locale is also well known for its roaming wild feral goats - by car or foot ensures a beautiful journey amongst spectacular Scottish scenery with the Inversnaid Bunkhouse and Top Bunk Bistro - a welcome "oasis".

The sellers, who originally operated the bunk house themselves and then built the Log Cabin, have in recent years leased the business. As the current tenants have come to the end of their lease, the decision has been taken to sell the Inversnaid Bunkhouse. With the established business and good profits, this offers a wonderful opportunity to investors or owner/operators to acquire a great little business in an iconic location of Scotland.


The Bunkhouse accommodation is located mainly at the ground floor level of the converted church where there are 7 bedrooms providing 23 bed spaces. Also at ground floor level are the gents shower and toilet facilities and the disabled shower facilities. At first floor there is additional ladies shower and toilet facilities.


The Bistro Restaurant is located at the first floor level of the converted church and the restaurant (38 covers) features the church vaulted ceiling and retains stained glass windows. At one end is the main servery and bar area behind which there is the galley kitchen.


At first floor level there is an office and at lower ground level of the converted church is the laundry room.


Built in 2012 the log cabin provides the following accommodation.

Lower Ground -2 double bedrooms; separate shower with w.c.. Ground Floor - Open plan kitchen/sittingroom/dining area. Patio doors to balcony; shower room with w.c. First Floor - 3 bedrooms.(All windows from the Log Cabin overlook the burn).

The log cabin has the versatility of being useable for additional letting accommodation, associated with the Bunkhouse, and/or staff accommodation.


Alongside the converted church, at the lower ground level is a hot-tub. The Inversnaid Bunkhouse is set in its own private grounds alongside the public road and there is ample and adequate car parking for visitors. An area of levelled grass between the Bunkhouse and Log Cabin is, on occasion, used for camping purposes.
