Lomond Woods Holiday Park has been named at this month's Scottish Hospitality Awards as Scotland's finest park, beating hundreds of other businesses to the title.
Stepping up to receive the accolade in front of VIP guests from Scotland's tourism industry at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow were members of the park-owning Wood family.
Lomond Woods is one of six parks owned by Wood Leisure, and this year's glittering awards ceremony also saw two of its other parks nominated for the Best Park in Scotland award.
They were Campsite Glen Holiday Park near Stirling, and Blairgowrie Holiday Park near Perth which gained a "highly commended" status in the category.
The Scottish Hospitality Awards highlight tourism enterprises which offer exceptional standards of facilities and services, and take into account the feedback given by customers.
Wood Leisure has been welcoming guests since 1981, this year sees the 25th anniversary of Lomond Woods under the family's ownership.
Since acquiring the park, the group has invested heavily in new facilities, accommodation and landscaping to create a first-class destination for holiday guests.
Boasting a top five-star rating from Visit Scotland among its many awards, the Lomond Woods provides luxury holiday homes to buy and to rent, glamping accommodation and touring pitches.
Manager at Lomond Woods Tricia Farragher said that everyone at the park was thrilled to have taken the ultimate accolade of the Best Holiday Park in Scotland at the awards:
"We owe a big debt of thanks to all of our many loyal customers whose votes helped to take us to the number one position," she said.
"A big factor in this competition is the hospitality which is provided to holiday guests, as well as the friendly atmosphere and warmth of welcome which customers receive.
"Delivering this is entirely in the hands of our staff team, so they deserve a big share of the credit for this wonderful achievement,"
The other three parks in the group are Corriefodly Holiday Park and Callander Woods Holiday Park, both in Perthshire, and Deeside Holiday Park near Aberdeen.
