Blairgowrie-based Wood Leisure has reopened its Deeside Holiday Park after it suffered more than £3 million of flood damage during Storm Frank.
The site at Maryculter, west of Aberdeen, was twice in a week last winter engulfed by the floodwaters of the nearby River Dee.
Up to 60 static caravans, 60 touring pitches, holiday lodges and facility blocks were lost on the 12-acre site which the Wood family spent eight years building up.
The raging River Dee rose to unprecedented levels and covered the holiday park with six metres of water.
Heightened flood barriers were overwhelmed forcing some guests to be airlifted to safety by helicopter.
Sarah Wood MacGregor, a partner of the Courier Business Award-winning company, said much of the park would have to be rebuilt.
Six months on part of the park has been reconstructed for the summer to welcome holiday home guests, touring caravans and tents.
Luxury self-catering accommodation as well as new 2016 caravan holiday homes are available for hire.
The touring area has been refurbished to a high standard, offering fully serviced and hard standing pitches, with new family shower rooms and laundry facilities.
Sarah said: “We offer a huge thanks to everyone who supported the effort to restore the park and help reach the momentous occasion where Deeside can officially open the gates and welcome our customers back.
“It has been a huge challenge for the family to resurrect the holiday park notwithstanding the massive investment and the rigours of bureaucracy to surmount.”
Further works are planned to secure the site for the future and preventative measures have been implemented.
New buildings are planned and the Wood family are determined their new designs will surpass the 5-star facilities demolished by Storm Frank.
She hoped local businesses are also managing to get back on their feet and will enjoy a boost from the Deeside park reopening.
Wood Leisure’s other holiday parks are at Blairgowrie; Balloch; Bridge of Cally and Campsie Glen.
