If you have always dreamed of owning your own caravan campsites, this could be your chance, as the Christies Parks estate in northeast Scotland has gone on the market for offers over £9 million.
The estate is made up of three sites – Burnside Caravan Park, Burghead Beach Park and Lossiemouth Bay Park – all of which are within nine miles of the ‘Riviera of the North’, Elgin.
The smallest of the sites is Burghead Beach Caravan Park. Covering 6.1 acres and consisting of 101 pitches, the park overlooks the beach and is situated in Burghead, a Pictish fishing village.
Lossiemouth Bay Caravan Park (seen in the lead image) is near Lossiemouth, overlooking the picturesque River Lossie. Covering approximately 10 acres, the park has 152 pitches and also comes with what has been called an “impressive and substantial modern residential/holiday house”.
The third site is Burnside Caravan Park. Found in woodland and bordering Fochabers – a historic village – the site currently has 144 pitches and extends to around 15 acres. There are numerous facilities available at the park, including a covered swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi area, while there are 1.5 acres of woodland that has the potential to be turned into either lodge or glamping units.

This is the first time the three caravan parks in northeast Scotland have been put on the market, with the sale conducted by Colliers, as the current owner, Gordon Christie, is retiring.
Richard Moss, Head of UK Park Agency at Colliers, commented: “Christies Parks provides an excellent blend of a strong established business which also has significant growth potential for a new operator. Established in 2006, the family business can trace its roots back to 1820. The business has always performed well but has traded superbly in the heightened demand from so many holiday home owners looking for a getaway place from the stresses of modern life.”
Gordon Christie said: “Running the parks has been a joy for me for over 40-years but now is a good time for somebody with fresh and new ideas to take control and move them forward in the future.”
