Description

I am renting out Marshmallow my old but trusty Volkswagen campervan for people looking for adventure in Scotland. It is a small log wood camper on wheels with plenty of character and extremely easy to drive.

This Volkswagen lt28 is the identical twin of Mellow Yellow (which we now sold as its mileage had reached astronomical heights due to its popularity). Its living quarters are compact but highly organised so everything is within hand reach.

Cooking
There is a little two pit gas stove and a grill underneath, pots and pans in the overhead cupboard and we generally keep condiments that guests leave behind in there as well. That way you probably won't have to buy sugar, olive oil, mayo and the like. The cool box under the bed keeps your food cool with ice packs. Every supermarket sells these for £1/kg and they do the job 24 hrs. There is also a tiny electric fridge which runs when the camper is driving.

Sleeping
There’s a fixed double bed, which runs lengthwise across the van, creating a long stretched bed (so the taller persons can stretch their legs). Very comfortable sleeper, and you can open the skylight to regulate the air.

Bike rack/shower
We have a bike rack in case you need it. There is also a shower that can be used outside the camper and which is powered by a 5m 12v pump which you submerge in the water tank.

Driving
The van handles like a dream and there is a stereo radio player/cd player as well as an aux facility so you can play your own music via the car speakers. Bring your own aux cable to plug in the 3mm jack. There are various USB ports for charging your devices powered by a separate leisure battery which itself is powered by driving the camper.

Campsites
For washing and generally keeping in touch with civilization, you could hit a campsite now and then - I have a list of the ones in the highlands that stay open in winter so just ask me and I'll forward it. It's in Google Maps format, and the map ALSO contains the locations of PUBLIC SHOWERS in many Scottish towns and villages. Nice one, ey? (pure self interest).

Wildcamping
Wildcamping (staying on the roadside overnight) is generally tolerated in Scotland. It's the Land of the Free after all. Most people do it without any problem, so long as you don't pitch up right on the doorstep of a campsite and keep the noise down. Around Loch Ness and Loch Lomond, there are signs indicating camping management zones, so you'd do best to look up the website of Loch Lomond national park and look for the camping permits. These cost only 5 pounds and are well worth it, given that you get a lot of information about where you are. You can book an overnight permit online and instantly so you could even book when you are in the area already.

Winter camping
Winter camping in Marshmallow can easily be be done thanks to the built in heater that can be used without the engine running. It is a 5kw heater and is very good.
