The Back o Hill is located in the Raploch estate in the city of Stirling, central Scotland. The city has a population of around 50,000 and the Raploch estate has approximately 2,500 residents. The estate comprises a few local shops and a community college campus. The pub itself is located at one end of the estate, adjacent to a large Sainsburys and McDonalds. It is a large free-standing building comprising two floors.
The pub is made up of two trading areas on slight split levels and is all serviced by one main bar located in the heart of the pub and faces the front elevation. Around the bar is the main bar lounge with a mixture of fixed and loose seating and can be accessed by two entry doors. On the lower floor you will find a games area housing a pool table and darts boards and also provides access out onto the newly created beer garden and has proved to be very popular with the locals.
The pub is a strong local community pub mainly serving the estate. The current offer is 100% wet-led at the moment however there is a small room to the back of the bar which could be upgraded to allow a small food offer, perhaps around the weekend. The Back O Hill also has a loyal darts following and teams run from the pub. The trade is currently spread quite evenly through the week and there is scope for entertainment at the weekends.
The private accommodation can be accessed through the main bar and is large space in a good decorative order. In brief this comprises: Four bedrooms, Kitchen, Lounge and Bathroom.

I am looking for a hands-on operator who works hard and is able to set up links with the local community. There will need to be a strong front of house presence. However, as it is wet-led it is a relatively straight-forward one-bar operation, there is the possibility of a refurbishment further down the line with the right licensee. Being a great community pub is the clear aim by forging links with key people in the sports teams and the local housing estate in general is key to drive in new and old custom.
