I am a glaciologist working at the University of Edinburgh. I've lived in Scotland since 2003, and absolutely love the highlands, and the opportunities these mountains offer for climbing, skiing, mountain biking, walking and running.
Andy has been very flexible and proposed us his own campervan when finding out at the last minute, while we were already flying to Edinburgh, that the campervan we had booked had a failure. We ultimately ended up with the "Millenium Falcon" which was very comfortable and well equiped. Andy also provided pillows and sheets so really we only had to take our duvets with us which is very convenient if you can only take a limited amount of luggages. Andy replies very quickly to messages, both before and during the rent, which is very helpful. It was our first rental of a campervan and we found it easy and amazing, even in the worst weather conditions that you can have in the far north of Scotland. Very good for 2 but I would recommend having a small tent if this kind of campervan is rented for 4 people. Andy, thank you very much for your kindness and flexibility.
We had a brilliant time in this lovely van. It was spacious, clean, great to drive and had everything we needed. Andy spent time showing us exactly how everything worked and also gave us a recommendation for an amazing campsite which was one of the highlights of our trip. It made a big difference to be in such a reliable, well equipped and well loved van.
My wife and I recently got married and had the pleasure of touring this vehicle around some highlights of the NC500!
Collection: Andy's address is easy to find and was ready waiting for us. He committed to spending nearly an hour to explain how to work the van, which proved super useful, especially when out in some of the most North Western points of Scotland. Andy also obliged in giving a few site recommendations and walked through a couple of "what if's", which helped ease any anxiety into our first campervan experience.
The drive: The van albeit relatively old in comparison to some of the new flashy VW models you see driving around, was so easy to drive and handled all the tricky one lane, steep gradient roads perfectly, and sat at 70 no bother on the dual carriageway!
The pitch: Set up was easy and adapted nicely to your traditional site with a hard ground and going off road amongst those wild beaches up north. Cables, leisure battery etc all previously explained.
The sleep: I am 6ft 3 and found I slept just fine in the Rock n Roll bed on the ground floor. Was a tad too long for the pop up, but glad I tried it out, and was a useful test for when we go to buy our own
Cooking and leisure: Everything was very simple inside and we managed to eat all the normal meals and have our morning coffee, just as we would living in the city. All the utensils were provided and made the evening time that much more enjoyable and relaxing
Handover: Was very quick and painless and Andy also obliged with some useful tips when we go to buy our own camper. It’s very rare to have a seasoned Camper offer two cents, when you live in the city like we do.
Overall very happy and would absolutely urge those on the fence, to take the plunge as we did and enjoy Andy's van and see more of Scotland!

Très bonne expérience en Ecosse avec le van d'Andy ! Bien que l'on n'ai eu beaucoup de pluie, les paysages sont magnifiques, les espaces grandioses ! Malgrés quelques petites avaries sur le van, nous avons profité pleinnement de ce séjour. Andy est réactif et très arrangeant, un grand merci pour ta disponibilité et tes conseils !
Tout était parfait, le van est un peu ancien mais très fonctionnel. Andy est très bienveillant et a pris le temps de bien nous expliquer, en cas de doutes des explications claires sont disponibles à bord ! Road trip juste génial en compagnie de notre RED VAN !! Nous étions 3 adulte et nous recommandons :)
La location s'est déroulée sans aucun problème. De la réservation sur Yescapa au retour du véhicule : parcours sans faute.
Andy nous a toujours réservé le meilleur accueil. Il s'est montré très réactif lors de nos échanges en amont de notre voyage. Lors de notre séjour en Ecosse, nous sommes restés en contact et Andy a été de très bon conseils.
Le véhicule est d'un gabari adéquat pour silloner et se faufiler les routes étroites de ce si beau pays. La prise en main est rapide. Il n'est pas particulièrement gourmand en carburant.
Nous avons donc passé un très agréable séjour, en toute liberté et autonomie (nuits au camping cependant).
