Victorian property which houses established wellness centre on the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has been instructed by the Findhorn Foundation to market Cluny Hill, a former spiritual and wellness centre in the Royal Burgh of Forres, Northeast Scotland.


Set in 6.5 acres in a secluded woodland area, the Findhorn Foundation has occupied the Victorian Cluny Hill building since 1976. The Foundation is known for its offering of wellness practices, including spiritual wellness, meditation, connection with nature and environmental awareness amongst other enlightening and inspirational activities and courses. For over 40 years, the spacious 76-bedroom property has welcomed attendees from all over the world.

Having adapted its operating model post-pandemic, the Foundation is focusing on operating from smaller venues and no longer needs the Cluny Hill premises.

The current owners commented, “The decision to close the Foundation’s operations at Cluny Hill was taken after much discussion and deliberation among the trustees. The work of the Foundation will continue in new ways and a renewed focus on outreach is reinvigorating the work of the dedicated staff and volunteers of the Foundation.

The Cluny Hill building presents a fantastic opportunity for any new owner to create a destination in the stunning northeast of Scotland. As a former hotel, the building lends itself to the possibility of being restored back to its original use, or it could once again be a learning or wellness centre without the need for full restoration and refitting.

Mark Lavery and Gary Witham at Christie & Co who are handling the sale commented, “This is a unique opportunity to purchase a substantial building in a beautiful rural part of Scotland. Sitting in circa 6.5 acres of woodland and mature gardens, this expansive former Victorian spa represents extremely good value for money for any potential buyer.”
