The purchase brings Verdant Leisure’s portfolio to 13 parks and marks their second acquisition in Perthshire. This deal will continue the company’s growth strategy to create a strong national group with significant scale, and Verdant Leisure remains keen to add further parks to the group this year.

The site in Stanley – set to open in 2023 - has planning permission for 293 holiday homes and will be developed into a luxury holiday park, named River Tay Leisure Park.

Phase one of the works begins this month and will see 77 pitches created to offer holiday accommodation and holiday home ownership options, alongside a new bar and restaurant facility.

As part of the development, Verdant Leisure has partnered with Cycling Scotland to support the creation of a shared use active travel path between Stanley and Luncarty, which will travel through River Tay Leisure Park.

Graham Hodgson, CEO of Verdant Leisure said: “Perthshire is a beautiful region, and it is easy to understand why it is so popular with our existing customers.

"We are thrilled to be able to develop this former quarry into a 5-star holiday park and further support tourism in Perthshire. We are sure that River Tay Leisure Park will become a destination of choice in the area”.
