Our goal 🧭

“to be an iconic Scottish destination; a place that people go out their way to add to their itinerary, and then go out their way to tell their friends about”.

How we'll achieve it ✔️

The Best People

We hire for attitude - not learned skills - and employ only the best people in the area (it’s good to have you on board!).  Our team are well presented, have a professional aura but are also colloquial, humorous, self-confident and friendly.  They move fast, work hard and take pride in the way they work, but also take time to smile and make good eye contact when a customer enters the room; creating a genuine connection by talking about the customer’s day/trip.

A Fantastic Product

Discover our new brand of hospitality - truly private space, comfortable luxurious Interiors and an environment that lets you reconnect and switch off! We have many fantastic products here at Woodlands that we are so proud of: Riverbeds Luxury Wee Lodges & Seabeds Luxury Lookout Lodges. We also have our Activities & Bespoke Experiences, the renowned 9-Hole Golf Course.

Attention to Detail

We care about first impressions and how things look, and pride in getting even the smallest of things right.  Everything we do is genuinely excellent and something we are happy to put our name behind. If it's not, then by working here you have a responsibility to raise this with the team and change it.

A Progressive Culture

We take time to speak (and listen!) to each other, and always treat one another with professionalism and respect.  Time is precious and honesty rare, so let’s be open and honest with each other from the get-go and tell things as they are.  We approach problems head-on and have the confidence to speak our mind.

An Excellent Brand

We put our brand to everything we do – it’s our signature and stamp of approval, and a way of telling the world that we care.
