Scottish Uplands Beattock Country Park Goes On The Market

Posted: 2nd September 2014


September 1, 2014 – Specialist parks agents, Colliers International, has been instructed by administrators, Kirstie Provan and Paul Dounis of Begbies Traynor, to dispose of Beattock Country Park in Dumfries and Galloway. The freehold property is for sale, with Colliers International seeking offers over £1.5 million.

The holiday park extends over more than 50 acres, including a 5.6 acre loch – well stocked with rainbow trout. The park is developed with 129 static caravan/lodge pitches and 65 touring caravan/tent pitches, along with a refurbished bar, office and park shop. The park benefits from a site license for 259 pitches for 12-month holiday use.

Richard Moss, director of Parks, Sports and Marinas, Colliers International, said: “Beattock Country Park is set in a picturesque woodland setting in the heart of Dumfries & Galloway. This area of Scotland is immensely popular with tourists and this is proven by the occupancy of the park. The business has a lot of potential and we, therefore, expect to receive a lot of interest from national and regional parties.”

Kirstie Provan, joint administrator of Beattock Country Park Limited, Cragieland Country Park LLP and Loch View Park Limited from Begbies Traynor, commented: “We have been working closely with the customers and management company at Beattock Country Park to ensure the continuation of services pending the sale. Several parties are showing early interest, we therefore hope to be able to conclude a successful sale in a relatively short timescale.”
