Family is at the Heart of Everything
Colin and Margaret Wood bought Blairgowrie Holiday Park in 1981. There were just a few holiday homes in a field on the edge of Blairgowrie. Could they imagine that forty years later the business they started would have grown to six holiday parks, almost five hundred owners and that all three of their daughters would be at the helm of the business they started? … Probably not!
Our Family Values
Customers have always been at the heart of the business. Right from the start the focus was on providing high standard with quality accommodation, spotless facilities, and excellent customer care. This paid off when Blairgowrie Holiday Park achieved a 5-star rating from VisitScotland in 1990 and the accolades followed through the years, including a Thistle Award, the Oscar of the tourism industry in Scotland and Family Business of the Year in the Courier Awards − reinforcing their commitment and passion as a strong family business planning for the future!
Growing the Family
A lot has changed since those early days. Colin and Margaret had the vision to develop a top quality, all year-round holiday business, and invested heavily in the park. Over the years they added to the family as they bought other sites including Lomond Woods Holiday Park, Loch Lomond in 1994; Corriefodly Holiday Park, Perthshire in 2000; Deeside Holiday Park, Aberdeenshire in 2008; Campsie Glen Holiday Park, Stirlingshire in 2010; and most recently Callander Woods Holiday Park, Stirlingshire in 2018.
Four Decades On
This year the company was lucky enough to celebrate its fortieth birthday – with a very big cake and a glass of bubbly of course! A glass was raised to our 120 strong team who are at the heart of our Wood Leisure Family and to another four decades of creating memorable holidays for our guests.
