Highland Holidays acquires Pine Trees Leisure Park

Highland Holidays has made its second acquisition, purchasing Pine Trees Leisure Park, situated on the West Highland Way walk close to the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.

It will be renamed Tyndrum Holiday Park and has camping pitches over approximately 18 acres of land, along with various huts and pods. Highland Holidays also 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 was the perfect opportunity for us - my family has owned and developed holiday parks in Scotland since 1967, until recently selling Argyll Holidays.”

Highland Holidays made its first acquisition in March 2020, with the purchase of Lochy Holiday Park, which was renamed to Ben Nevis Holiday Park.

The flagship site has recently undergone a £1m refurbishment, including the opening of 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 10 new luxury lodges, with hot tubs and views of the UK’s tallest mountain.

Campbell added: “The team are 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.”

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 is set to create 20 new jobs.
