The story so far…..

Leaving our cabin in the trees

From Dining Room Table to our new premises

Our story started about 19 years ago when a small playground equipment business took residence on a dining room table in a home in Central Scotland.

Waiting to be loaded up

Domestic wooden swings, forts and sandpits evolved into a range for nurseries and schools. Then organically into a commercial range for caravan parks, historic houses and farm shops.

After a few years we moved from the comfort of the house into a purpose built wooden cabin in the garden. I can still remember the excitement of moving into a ‘proper’ work space which sat beautifully in amongst the trees. Always a little too cold in winter, but lovely to have an open door in the warmer months. Three office members of staff multiplied into seven. And of course we also have the company of Pippin and Roxy, the family dogs. In total including the men in the yard, we are now 14.

New beginnings

So we are moving out of Drum and into Milnathort. It is still in Kinross-shire, and not far in miles. But for us it seems like a huge and much needed step. It will allow us to achieve the goals we have set for the company going forward.

We will miss our first home, the squirrels, highland cows and chirpy birds. But we are so excited to move into a much larger yard and can utilise more office space. The new site is situated more conveniently for transport links and the covered sheds make for a much more productive working environment. We have been able to invest in more tools and machinery. No longer will we have to hot desk and did I mention we are now blessed with kitchen facilities. Heated male & female loos means the portaloo can be returned.

It may take us a few weeks to settle in, but here starts a new chapter in our story.

If we can help you with your outdoor wooden play equipment, please get in touch – we are ready to spring into action.

Will miss these ladies

Our new address is:

Caledonia Play, Old Mill, South Street, Milnathort, Kinross KY13 9XB

Our telephone and email addresses remain the same.

We don’t have a display area however we still have some of our products installed at a different location so if you would like to see them please get in touch and we will make sure there is somebody there to meet you.

And I am sure given a little time, we will try and create a little wildlife haven in our new home and watch the birds out the windows again.
