Gandalf is our VW Transporter T6 Camper and it is ready to hire for your adventure.

Gandalf is so named because the great grey wizard of The Hobbit was at his best when on a travelling adventure.


Our camper can accommodate 4 people; 2 up in the pop – top with 3 zip up windows from which to enjoy the views, and 2 on the fold down double bed. Blackout blinds, windscreen insulation and touch sensitive LED lighting create a lovely cosy environment. A few card games are provided, ensuring guests of all ages will be entertained.


The kitchen area has a sink, double gas burner cooker and a grill. There is a fridge with a freezer box, waste bin and a fold away table. The two front seats swivel around to allow 4 people to sit comfortably at the table for a meal or there are folding stools neatly stowed away for quick access. A whistling kettle, a selection of pans and all kitchen utensils should provide you with everything required to prepare meals, snacks and drinks throughout your holiday. A 25m hook up lead is supplied for use at a campsite.


There is plenty clever storage in the van, empty cupboards for clothing and kit, then handy clips for bags and rucksacks keeping the ground space free. Waterproof covers are attached to front seats ensuring good maintenance and easy cleaning. A bike rack for 4 bikes is available to hire at an added cost of £25.

Gandalf made our NC500 holiday even better than planned. Chris and Ali were fantastic to deal with the whole way through. Ali gave us a great tour of the van to begin, and the whole family even pitched in with help from afar when Gandalf punctured a tyre. Coming from someone that has only ever owned hatchbacks, the van is incredibly easy to drive, has no problems getting up mountains, or travelling down tiny country roads. There are more than enough options to help cook meals, to the point where I completely forgot about the BBQ! And there was a good amount of space for sleeping 2, with one of us in the pull-down, and the other in the pop-up. I’d really recommend both the van, and dealing with Chris and Ali. September 2021
Chris is a great person who very quickly became a friend. The campervan was in first class condition, clean, tidy and with all the required cooking utensils and a few extras to get my holiday started. The campervan performed faultlessly over the 7 days I had it and completed around 750 miles. September 2021
It was the best decision to take Gandalf with us on our trip! Easy to drive for the first time campervan driver, has everything you need for comfortable wild camping. The only advice for those who want to cook mainly inside Gandalf - the water tank is enough for about 3 washes. Chris was very helpful and easy to reach throughout the trip (Scottish Highlands reception permitting!). Definitely recommend. September 2021
Chris was a pleasure to deal with and the camper van is brilliant and has everything you could possibly need! What a week away and one we will never forget. Would highly recommend. August 2021
You could not find a better van and more friendly host than Chris and his fantastic VW van Gandalf. We had fantastic time in Scotland and will definitely come back but this time for longer period and will properly explore west cost of Scotland. July 2021
Gandalf the grey campervan more than met our expectations and Chris was a fantastic host. We took the camper for a week to the Trossachs and the Isle of Mull, and Gandalf was very smooth and easy to drive, even on the single track roads in Mull. Chris has equipped the camper incredibly well with more than you can ask for, with some great personal touches as well. Converting the camper from driving mode to sleep mode was straightforward when you get the hang of it, and cooking and eating in the van is also really easy. Would definitely recommend Gandalf to others, and if we want to rent another camper on Scotland in the future Chris and Gandalf will be the first place we look. June 2021
Fantastic camper, great host will definitely be re-booking in future. May 2021
