Forestry and Land Scotland looking for campsite Operators
Forestry and Land Scotland is looking to find new operator (s) to run its three Camping in the Forest sites in Scotland under long term lease arrangements.
Following a recent buyout from The Camping and Caravanning Club, FLS now directly oversee the forest camping business at its Cashel campsite on Loch Lomond side, at Cobleland, near Aberfoyle and at Glenmore near Aviemore.
FLS Chief Executive, Simon Hodgson, said;
“Camping is an important and accessible activity that brings people closer to nature, heightens their appreciation of the environment and helps them to relax and recharge their batteries.
“It is going to become more popular as more people consider their carbon footprint and opt for ‘staycations’.
“In order to help meet that demand – and potentially expand on our camping offer - we are looking to partner with site operators that share our enthusiasm for this opportunity and our commitment to improve our camping offer in ways that benefit visitors and local communities.”
FLS has appointed leisure property specialist CDLH as marketing agents to seek approaches from local or national operators looking to run one site or more sites with a lease term of 15 years.
Operators will be expected to make improvements to the sites as well as work with FLS to integrate the sites into any wider improvement/development plans for the area and where possible to deliver enhanced community benefits.
