The Wood Family Journey   

The Family

The family started the business over 35 years ago when Colin and Margaret purchased Blairgowrie Holiday Park in 1981. With the foresight to develop a top quality, all year round holiday business, they invested heavily in the park. The Woods then extended their portfolio with the purchases of further sites including; Lomond Woods Holiday Park, Loch Lomond in 1994, Corriefodly Holiday Park, Perthshire in 2000, Deeside Holiday Park, Aberdeenshire in 2008 and finally Campsie Glen Holiday Park (formerly Balgair Castle), Stirlingshire in 2010.

Colin has spent his entire career in the caravan holiday business and he is delighted to be followed by Rachel, Kirsty and Sarah following their university careers. Having spent their childhood on holiday parks and their formative years “learning the ropes” they are well-equipped to take the business forward and are a motivation and inspiration to the older generation.

Awards

After years of investing, Blairgowrie Holiday Park achieved a 5-star status in 1990 and along with Lomond Woods and Deeside all three parks currently hold 5-stars from Visit Scotland. Corriefodly and Campsie Glen currently hold a 4-star status from Visit Scotland and the family continue to invest and improve the parks on a rolling basis.

Our Brand

2016 saw the launch of Wood Leisure (formerly known as ‘Holiday Parks’) to more accurately represent the true values and beliefs of the business, aligning ourselves with our mission and vision. The new Wood Leisure logo, which features a tree, gives reference to the family name and also to mother nature, with an emphasis on getting away from it all, relaxing and re-energising at our holiday parks. The tree itself combines a scripted ‘W’ emphasising the family’s deep-rooted commitment to quality and growth and of course, encompasses the name ‘Wood’ itself.

The holiday parks each have their own atmosphere and ambience reflecting the beautiful areas of Scotland where each park is located. At each park is a conscientious and friendly team of well-trained personnel all committed to ensuring a relaxed and enjoyable leisure experience for all of our guests. Together we aim to ensure that the business continues in the future to build on its reputation for great customer service, quality and family values.
