PLANS for a small expansion of the award-winning Drimsynie Estate Holiday Village have been announced by Argyll Holidays.

Permission to locate a further 30 caravans is being sought for an area close to the holiday village’s 9-hole golf course as the popularity of Drimsynie with holidaymakers continues to thrive.

If approved by Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority, the expansion will allow for an approximately additional 100 guests to stay at the site at any time, with supplementary facilities such as car parking provided as part of the plans.

The golf course, which is hugely popular with guests and with local residents who access the site, will be retained with adjustments made to the first and second tees to allow the new accommodation to be sited.

Cove UK, which purchased Argyll Holidays in February 2022, said it planned to continue investing in Drimsynie and the wider Argyll portfolio to ensure its enduring attraction for visitors of all ages.

Gordon Walker, Cove UK Operations Director, said:

“Drimsynie Estate Holiday Village is a leading draw within the Argyll Holidays portfolio and we’re pleased to be putting plans in place for an additional 30 caravans at the site.

“Despite international travel returning last year, the popularity of domestic stays continues unabated and Argyll Holidays has seen great demand across our eight sites.

“This additional capacity at Drimsynie will allow us to cater for more families and guests during peak periods whilst still ensuring the village like charm of that park that holidaymakers enjoy is retained.

“The golf course at Drimsynie is highly valued by our guests and also by the local community and we’re pleased to have been able to come up with plans with our architects Unick that allow for additional accommodation but retain this important facility with only minor adjustment. Indeed, as our investment plans for Drimsynie progress in future years, improvements to the golf course will be one area we will be considering.

“It is approaching one year since Cove UK purchased Argyll Holidays and we’ve been delighted with how our plans have progressed to build on an already highly successful business. We’ve received great support from guests, team members and from the local communities close to our parks and we hope to continue this growth in the coming years.”
