Over the past 10 years, our Ardgartan Argyll location in Scotland has provided natural escapes in the heart of Argyll Forest Park, within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. To mark the occasion, we're taking time to reflect on the positive impact the location has made to the local area.
At Ardgartan Argyll, we have 40 eco-sensitive, self-catering cabins, each designed to fit sensitively within the surrounding environment. The location benefits from having a Forest Retreat that stocks local produce, keeping as much of our own spend in the area as we can to support local businesses.
We've made an impact to the local economy. Around £1 million is spent annually by our guests in the local area, visiting attractions, eating out and buying local produce and Scottish souvenirs.
We recruit locally and employ 34 people in permanent roles. We nurture the skills and passions of each team member and provide a unique experience working in the forest.
75% of the UK's Red Squirrels live in Scotland and we see them daily at our location. The mixed woodland around Ardgartan Argyll provides a wide range of available food such as hazelnuts for these iconic native creatures.
