Our History


A New Family Business

In 1970 a new family business was created by Mr & Mrs Mungo Bryson, who were at the time working on and tending to their family farm – ‘Boreland of Parton’. Mr & Mrs Bryson made the decision to officially open one of their loch side fields to campers. Over a period of 40 years, what began as a country side haven for camping enthusiasts,  has been developed and has become home to a fleet of static caravan holiday homes both for sale and to let, as well as providing a warm welcome to many families in touring caravans, motor homes, camper vans and tents.



In the year 1980, what was a derelict cottage located within the camping field was renovated to create a new shop and reception, which still welcomes the guests of Loch Ken Holiday Park today. Fishing was a hugely popular pursuit on the Loch at this time, and competitions were held at the Holiday Park on a monthly basis.


Expansion of the park

An adjacent field was added to the business to cater for the growing popularity and interest in camping holidays.


Passing on the family business

Mr Mungo Bryson Jnr. took over the management of Loch Ken Holiday Park and over the course of the next five years the business saw developments in the holiday homes, touring pitches and the range of facilities on offer to camping guests


Further expansion

2015 saw further expansion to the park with the addition of more hard standing pitches for touring caravans. This year also saw the paddle boarding craze take off on Loch Ken, which is still very popular to this day.


Continuing to grow

The park has changed a lot since the beginning and we are continuing to grow throughout 2020 and onwards.

Continuous improvement is based on the idea that even when things are good, they could be better, continually improving helps us deliver on our goals and better meet the needs of our visitors.

    Great stay in our motor home, friendly staff, modern, clean facilities, plenty to do on site, play parks, fishing, boat hire, and a well stocked shop. An ideal base for touring the Galloway Forrest Park. We'll definitely return!

    First stop on our motor home trip around Scotland and it set the standard for the rest of our camp site visits. A beautifully laid out site, quality amenities and great hosts, with a Loch-side position, it can't get much better!
