Looking for VW Camper hire in Scotland?  Meet Daisy, our gorgeous campervan who has all the essentials for a fun and fabulous road trip.  There is no better way to discover Dumfries & Galloway and beyond.

For full details on Daisy and her pricing see here

But before you decide to hire Daisy you might have a few questions!

  • Are there any age limits?

Any driver must be at least 25 years old, and no older than 78 years old.

  • Does the price include insurance?

Yes!  The price includes fully comprehensive insurance for one driver.

  • Are we able to have more than one driver?

We are happy to arrange insurance for up 2 extra drivers.  This costs £15 per day, per driver.

  • Are we liable for the insurance excess, if we are involved with an accident?

Not if you have a full UK drivers licence, or a licence issued by a Schengen area country – There is an extra insurance (included in the price), which covers any excess incurred at one incident.  If you have a licence issued by a non-Schengen country, you are liable for the excess, which will be taken from the deposit amount.

  • Can I leave my own car with you?

You are welcome to park your car at our property for the duration of your hire.

  • What fuel does the van take?

Just refill with ordinary premium un-leaded petrol (nearest fuel station in Dalbeattie).

  • How many passengers does the campervan take?

If you are hiring the van to camp, we would recommend no more than 2 adults and 2 (small children).  However, Daisy will take up to 5 passengers, if just used for day trips.

  • What are the sleeping arrangements?

There is a full width fold-down double bed. 

  • Is there a  maximum  distance I am allowed to travel per day?

We don’t put a limit on the number of miles you can drive per day.  But classic VW campers do not travel fast. Bearing this in mind, as well as the country lanes, you are unlikely to be able to travel at the same speed as a modern car.

  • Is the camper manual or automatic?

All our vehicles have manual gear boxes.

  • How long can I hire your camper for?

You can hire our van for a minimum of 3 nights, and a maximum of one month. Occasionally, we will hire out the van for a shorter period.

  • Do I have to pay a any kind of deposit?

UK and EU Schengen area countries driving licence holders: We take a security deposit of £500 (by debit/credit card,) when you pick up the camper.  This will be refunded within 48 hours of the safe return of the vehicle. The deposit covers any damage to the vehicle which isn’t covered by insurance, such as damage to tyres.

Non-Schengen country driving licence holders: There is a security deposit of £1800, to covers the excess.

  • Does the camper have seat belts?

The camper has 2 seat belts in the front, and 4 seat belts in the back.

  • Can I put a child’s seat in the van?

No problem, children’s safety seats have been used several times in the van.  But we would advise you to check, in advance that your particular seat fits.

  • Is there any heating?

There is a heater which runs independently of the engine, so you will be toasty whilst camping.  However, the heater should not be used whilst your are sleeping.

  • Is camping equipment included?

The van has an electric fridge, twin gas hob, sink and tap.  We also provide cooking equipment, utensils, cutlery, plates, mugs etc.  Also, an outside table and chairs.  Everything you need, in fact!  Please see Daisy’s full inventory  here.


  • Can I buy a voucher for Daisy?

Yes, we will post or email you a voucher.  This will be personalised with the recipient’s name, the occasion and include a photo of Daisy.  Vouchers are available for one night or more (minimum hire of our camper is for 3 nights).  Have a look here to find out more about our vouchers.



It’s easy to see why BBC Countryfile magazine readers voted resoundingly for Dumfries and Galloway as a recent winner of the Holiday Destination of the Year.  They loved its plentiful charms – tranquil forests, astonishing wildlife, wonderful beaches, lochs and streams, plus the UK’s original Dark Sky Park.

The beautiful sailing village of Kippford is just on our doorstep.  Then there’s Kirkcudbright and how it pulses with artistic life; Castle Douglas with its foodie delights and Wigtown in that it rivals Hay on Wye as a book lover’s haven. Not to mention musical Moniave – aka Britain’s coolest village.

Named ‘The Scottish Riviera’ by the Victorians, Dumfries and Galloway has 200 miles of dramatic coastline and many golden sandy beaches.  There are excellent outdoor activities such as golf, hiking and fishing and the world-class mountain biking trails at Galloway Forest Park.  As well as a great variety of visitor attractions and quality artisan food and drink producers.

And if you want to venture further afield?  Why not head north to the Highlands and Islands.  Or travel south to the stunning Lake District or east to the Borders and Northumberland – the castle coast.

When you have the freedom of the open road, the possibilities are endless.
