Argyll Holidays has been bought over by US-based resort operator Cove Communities.

The international resort operator has bought over the family chain firm for an undisclosed fee.

Argyll Holidays, which was established in 1967 by the Campbell family, operates eight parks across Argyll and Bute.

The resorts included in the sale are Drimsynie Estate Village, Hunters Quay Village, Loch Lomond Park, Loch Awe Park, Stratheck Park, Loch Eck Lodges, Loch Eck Caravan Park, and St Catherine’s Caravan Park.

Cove bosses said they were attracted to the firm due to “its unique locations and attractive tourism and lifestyle proposition”.

Cove UK managing director Mark Seaton said: “Argyll Holidays represents everything that Cove looks for: stunning properties, beautiful and unique locations, and an aspirational lifestyle offering.

“Simply put, they are the best at what they do.”

Argyll Holidays director Keith Campbell added: “Whilst we have been approached over the years by different buyers, Cove was the first company that we felt understood what we stand for and could continue what we started.”
