Skipper, a 2018 stylish VW, is waiting for you right in the centre of Edinburgh. We're ten minutes walk from Edinburgh’s main train, bus and tram terminals, so there's no need to trek out to an industrial estate on the outskirts of town.

We don't charge extra for bedding or chairs – and vehicle insurance is all included.

With a sprung double bed in the pop-top roof and a full-width double rib bed (137cm) below, you'll get a comfy night's sleep helped by pretty blackout curtains, privacy glass and cosy heating system. ( max weight on the upper bed 150 kilos)

It comes fully equipped for cooking with a hob, sink and fridge. There are indoor and outdoor tables and chairs. And the front seats swivel for a spacious living-room effect.

You have the freedom to wild camp and still make use of the lighting, heating and USB chargers because Skipper's leisure battery lasts for four days and recharges as you drive along. At a campsite, you can plug in and recharge that way too. Skipper uses petrol with up-to-date stop-start technology to cause the least damage to the environment. Its insulation and even the duvet is made from recycled materials.

You can go wherever you want as the mileage is unlimited. It takes minutes to reach the countryside. We're just two hours' drive to the awesome Cairngorm mountains, less than two hours to the Trossachs National Park and two hours to the Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park. Skipper counts as a car on the ferry so you can explore Skye, Mull and the Hebrides with ease. Or perhaps you'd like to drive right to the top of Scotland and see the amazing rugged coast, beautiful empty beaches and incredible mountains. There are lots of wonderful campsites too – ask us for tips.

Skipper is easy to drive, feels like a car and has brilliant parking sensors. It has six manual gears with cruise control, stop-start technology and hill assist. It comes with heating, air conditioning, Bluetooth media and phone connection, not to mention lots of sockets to charge devices.

Safety features include a fire extinguisher, carbon monoxide alarm, fixed safety-tested seats and belts, alarm and immobiliser. Full breakdown cover

We can be flexible about pick-up times, but give yourself an hour so we can check your documents and show you all the clever things that Skipper can do.

I rented the van with my girlfriend for a road trip in Scotland. It was perfect for us and we did not have any problems with it. Jane was also very helpful with local tips and she is a wonderful person. April 2022
Owners of the campervan are very friendly and always quick to respond any queries Sipper is well stock of all things you possibly need and lots more, from the moment the door opens you can tell his been well looked after I would certainly look at booking again xx August 2021
We loved the campervan - clean, really well equipped and comfortable. Jane was incredibly generous with a refund as we encountered a couple of unforeseen problems during our trip. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone who is considering booking September 2020
