Celebrating 35 Years in Business Creating Perfect Holidays!
20th December 2016
This year we are celebrating our 35th anniversary promoting travel and tourism in Scotland and creating memorable holidays for visitors from the UK and abroad. We would like to thank all our loyal customers, suppliers and media partners who have contributed to our growth and prosperity over the years.
The company was born in 1981 when Margaret and Colin Wood bought their first park in Blairgowrie, Perthshire. The park has gone through major upgrading projects that helped it to become the 5-star holiday park it is today. In 2016 it was crowned Best Caravan Site of the Year at the Scottish Hospitality Awards. Providing a wide range of accommodation options such as deluxe hot tub lodges, self-catering caravan holiday homes, touring and motorhome pitches – there is a holiday experience for all.
It is, however, the people that make all the difference. Margaret said: “Those of our customers who have been with us from the first day of our journey can remember our daughters playing at the park, and now 35 years later they run the business and have their own children, with the youngest, Skye, just turning three months in January. I am truly blessed that my daughters and their families share my passion for providing enjoyable holidays in Scotland. Having support from the strong teams around them means we can provide visitors with everything they need to make happy memories for years.”
The passion and commitment of the family and all employees enabled the group to grow to five parks over the past 35 years and win multiple awards, such as Family Business of the Year at The Courier Awards 2015. Blairgowrie park in Perthshire, Lomond Woods at Loch Lomond and Deeside park in the North-East between Aberdeen and Royal Deeside are graded 5 stars by Visit Scotland. Campsie Glen (formerly called Balgair Castle) in Stirlingshire and Corriefodly park in Perthshire are 4-star parks. The parks welcome visitors from across the UK and beyond, providing home from home comfort where you can escape from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Wood Leisure will continue to invest in the facilities at its parks to meet and exceed customer expectations.
