Highland Holidays, owner of Fort William’s Ben Nevis Holiday Park, has made a second acquisition.
The company purchased Pine Trees Leisure Park (United Kingdom), located on the West Highland Way walk, close to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, for an undisclosed sum.
Highland Holidays will also rename Pine Trees Leisure Park to Tyndrum Holiday Park. The site has camping and touring pitches over an estimated 18 acres of land and various huts and pods, according to a report.
The West Highland Way walk route to the park also has a gold prospecting river. Highland Holidays also have plans to develop the park with new luxury accommodation and facilities.
Andrew Campbell, director of Highland Holidays and former park manager of Loch Lomond Holiday Park, said acquiring Pine Trees Leisure Park was the perfect opportunity for them.
My family has owned and developed holiday parks in Scotland since 1967 until recently selling Argyll Holidays,” he said.
“We are delighted to continue the family expertise and bring something fresh to the village of Tyndrum and create a wonderful holiday experience for guests.”
Campbell said they see building local relationships and representing the community as essential values. They plan to keep using local suppliers and create over 20 new job opportunities in Scotland this year.
Highland Holidays made its first acquisition in March 2020, with the purchase of Lochy Holiday Park, which they then renamed Ben Nevis Holiday Park.
The flagship site has recently undergone a £1 million major refurbishment, including opening a new reception, shop, café, and play park, as well as new shower and laundrette facilities along with groundwork and landscaping.
Ben Nevis Holiday Park has also installed over ten new luxury lodges with hot tubs and scenic views.
“The team is delighted to soon be opening the new facilities at Ben Nevis Holiday Park where holidaymakers can enjoy dine-in or takeaway pizzas, cakes, and a selection of locally produced coffees and beverages,” Campbell said.
A new head office for the group will open next month in Biggar, South Lanarkshire, to facilitate new roles in administration, customer services, and finance. Across the parks and head office, Highland Holidays will have created 20 new jobs.
