About Willowbrae Coachworks

Willowbrae Coachworks is a multi award winning accident repair centre located in east central Scotland and is owned by Martin McFadden.
Martin left school at 16 to become an apprentice panel beater and showed ambition from the start of his career,
at the age of 20 he was helping run the coachworks firm where he was working.
Two years on he left to make his vision become a reality and that is when Willowbrae Coachworks was formed.
It first opened its doors in 1987 in a small premises at Forkenford but it soon became apparent that
Willowbrae was outgrowing the garage and needed to expand.

Martin then purchased a unit within Peffermill Industrial estate and working alongside the UK’s leading manufacturers, insurers and accident management companies as well as private vehicle owners carrying out repairs on all makes and models of vehicles.  Willowbrae has since obtained approved repairer status for Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and Lotus to name a few.
They have recently extended their premises to become a fully state of the art purpose built facility on a one acre site and continue to provide an unrivalled customer service experience delivering and exceeding expectations.
