“Many thanks Neil for being so helpful and informative with both the build up to our adventure and the handovers. We had a fabulous time driving and living in remote locations in Finn which we found very comfortable, especially sleeping in the raised roof. Loved the Outer Hebrides, such a remote a rugged landscape. We’ll be back! Thanks again Neil.”
Rob & Mandy – June 2018
“This was our second time hiring from Wild Campers. As previous VW owners we really value Neil’s attention to detail and the high quality of the vans. This time the added bonus of the solar panel meant there was no need to hook-up allowing us to wild camp our way around all the most beautiful spots. Neil’s thorough organisati
Margaret – April 2018
“We had THE best time travelling Scotland for a week in Inver. Warm duvet was provided and needed with temperatures at night to -4°. Luckily the van is also equipped with a super heating system so we did not feel cold for a moment. Wietske an Stuart took their time to explain every thing and gave a few insiders tips. The van drove great, we did not have difficulties to climb mountains nor driving through narrow streets on the Fife Coastal way. Can’t recommend them enough. Don’t hesitate – call/mail them and book. You won’t regret it for a second!”
“We have had an amazing time touring the Western Isles in Sorley. We simply loved our new found ‘bus’ freedom. The van had everything we needed, it was well planned and fitted out to a really high standard. It was extremely comfortable and handled really well, being v economical on fuel. We can highly recommend Wild Campers for an excellent holiday at a very competitive price. Neil was so helpful – nothing was too much trouble.”
Ali & James – July 2017
“We had complete confidence
Liz & James – May 2017
“We had looked at other campervan conversions as well as the VW California. Wild Campers had quite a different approach and offering – custom quality joinery work and an appearance different from the standard offerings on the market. High quality, high specification, friendly advice, great value, great warranty and customer care. Neil helped turn an idea we had for over a decade into a finished wonderful camper van.”
Hillary & Phil – April 2017
“I hired Sorley with my adult son. Neither of us had used a camper van before but we both found the van easy to drive. We were very happy with the quality and comfort of the van and its fittings. We used the satnav to help us find our way around and stayed on some beautiful wild camping sites. We took turns to sleep upstairs or downstairs, both beds were comfortable and cosy despite the chilly weather. We cooked and ate inside the van and found the cooking and sink arrangements to work well.
Neil was friendly and informative and clearly takes great pride and care in his work. We would have no hesitation in hiring a vehicle from him again in the future.”
Kerry – April 2017
“Wild Campers have just completed a fit out of my T5. They listened to what I wanted and provided a bespoke solution. I felt my van was in not just safe but kind hands and when finished it was exactly what I had hoped for. Thanks Neil!”
“Very happy with our conversion. Neil was great to deal with and kept us informed of progress. Nothing was too much trouble for him.”
Bryan – August 2016
“Can’t commend Neil and Kirsty enough on the level of service we received along with the quality of campervan we had. Our trip across Scotland was made all the better because of that. The attention to detail in the campervan was first class, I’d challenge anyone to find anything better! Thanks again Neil and Kirsty!”
“Finn was a great van to drive with the reversing sensors a big bonus to anyone who is not used to this size of vehicle. Dead cozy at night in the roof bed looking out through the front window. Well thought out design with everything having its own place and the roll our awning protects the side door nicely.”
“We had a great week touring the Highlands and Islands with Sorley. Neil was really friendly and gave us a thorough briefing and demonstration of how to use the van. It was our first time going on holiday with a campervan and we’re now hooked! The van has been excellently converted and is really comfortable to drive and live in. Thanks.”
Aoife – June 2016
“Hired Sorley to go to a wedding on the Isle of Coll, and everyone kept asking us where they could hire it! I love the attention to detail in Neil’s design. We’re definitely doing this again.”
Tommy – May 2016
“From my initial visit to discuss conversion to my final visit to collect my campervan Neil was great at listening and advising without dictating. The whole process was well documented with photographs and final information pack. I appreciated his attention to detail and the high standards he expected of himself. I am chuffed to bits with my campervan and so pleased I chose Wild Campers.”
Fiona – May 2016
“Our second trip with Finn and it was every bit as good as the first time. Finn still attracts so much attention on the road (still the best looking T5 we have seen) and is a pleasure to drive, he’s more like a car and sits comfortably on both motorway’s and the single lane roads around the far west of Scotland. Wild camping is something that gets better with practice and after four such trips we are now bordering on experts, there is no hotel or holiday cottage in the world that can provide a stunning new view each day for your morning cuppa or evening Malt Whisky. Neil is very helpful in every way possible, even helped rearrange our October 16 trip due to a family wedding. Thanks again Neil & Finn.”
Mark, Dione & Archie (the West Highland Terrier) April 2016
“We spent five days touring the west coast of the highlands in Sorley during April 2016 and had an incredible time. Everything about the experience met or exceeded our expectations. The van operations and amenities were clearly explained before we set off, and we were able to consult an easy-to-read manual for any questions that came up along the way. The van got great mileage, was easy to maneuver and had everything we needed for the week neatly stored away. We appreciated the book on wild camping, a detailed atlas and of course, the sat nav system was essential! Everything felt very new and fresh, and this was such a unique way to explore Scotland. Van camping allowed us flexibility to do what we wanted to do and go where we wanted to go, while offering a warm, cozy respite after long, cold days of hiking and exploring. We definitely recommend renting through Wild Campers and hope to return again one day for more adventures in Sorley!”
“We loved our trip in Sorley. The van was immaculate and all aspects of its operation were explained before we headed north. The van is easy to drive. Waking up to a deserted highland view with the sun rising and a cup of tea boiling was a real treat.”
Al & Kristine – March 2016
“We had a dream to stay in a magic country. So much beauty and things to be seen! The van is perfect to take advantage of the nature and its heating allowed us to be warm in spite of some snowflakes. We shall return…”
“Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve dans un pays magique. Tellement de beauté et de choses à voir! Le van est parfait pour profiter de la nature et son chauffage nous a permis d’être bien au chaud malgré quelques flocons de neige. Nous reviendrons…”
Elsa et Pierre – March 2016
“Amazing van, amazing service, made for an amazing holiday. Real pleasure doing business with Neil at Wild Campers, would strongly recommend to anyone considering a road trip around Scotland!”
Richard & Naomi – October 2015
“Had the most wonderful relaxing holiday. Finn was a pleasure to drive and extremely well equipped. Neil had thought of everything, the pre loaded sat nav was an extremely informative addition which we found very useful. We followed the sunshine around Scotland and picnicked in some beautiful spots. We woke to a different view each morning and sat under skies filled with stars in the evening. We were even lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights!! A truly amazing trip.”
Angela & John – October 2015
“It was our first time out in a camper van and our first trip to Scotland. Having the option to bring along our two border collies really did it for us. l found the whole process from booking onwards very straight forward and hassle free – Neil was dead helpful and his relaxed approach prior to letting us loose in his dub was great. Hiring this camper has offered us a great alternative holiday and as camper newbies we had no regrets. The van its self was spot on and very easy to drive – having the option to park and “brew up” whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery of Western Isles has to be experienced. Many thanks.”
Matt – October 2015
“The whole of the Wild Campers experience was fantastic, from booking, picking Finn up, the trip and returning Finn (although we didn’t want to). Neil is very easy to deal with, responds quickly to questions you may have before the trip and was very helpful and thorough with the demo of all equipment on collection day. Finn himself is a very attractive Bus and had so many admirers around the highlands (one German VW fan was even caught taking photos), he is well equipped and makes for a fantastic trip. This is the ideal way to explore Scotland, without the mundane trips backwards and forwards down the same roads day after day from a holiday cottage. In short the word is total ‘Freedom’ (in one of Wolfsburg’s finest). Thank you again to Neil and Finn, see you in April.”
Mark, Dione & Archie the Westie – September 2015
“Neil and Finn are a winning team combining great personal service and a fantastic campervan. The icing on the cake for us was that we could take our dog. Best holiday we have had in ages and we would not hesitate to recommend or book again.”
Sheila & Kendall – August 2015
“Once we stumbled upon the Wild Campers Scotland website we knew we’d found the van for our honeymoon in Scotland. Right from our initial inquiry, through the booking process, asking numerous questions, seeking advice, collection and return – Neil was easy to deal with, most helpful, always prompt to respond and made the whole process pleasurable. We’re already considering a return to Scotland next spring and if we do we’ll make sure that we’ve booked a van with Wild Campers.”
Steve & Carol – July 2015
“We were so proud to travel in Finn who received lots of admiring glances and comments. We are a family of 4 and the space was perfect. We talked and read books without the distraction of wifi as well as enjoying walking, cycling and chilling wherever we pleased! Neil had thought of everything and the equipment and extras like bike rack and awning were easy to handle. The additional bonus was the fuel efficiency! Would thoroughly recommend and very nice people to do business with.”
Sarah & Ritchie – July 2015
“Van is a joy to drive, just like a car around town. The ride is lovely too, feels just like my Golf. MPG is AMAZING. We did over 300 miles for £45, fully laden with dog, child, water and food for 3 days, not to mention the wine. Personal mobile number provided by Neil makes you feel secure and looked after, as does the full breakdown cover. Faultless.”
Paul – July 2015
“From start to finish Wild Campers was helpful & friendly. Communication throughout was excellent, useful & relaxed. Finn was a joy and had everything we needed for a great week exploring Scotland; sat nav with useful info programmed in, folder for everything you need to know about Finn (including top advise on making a cuppa in bed in the morning), fully equipped kitchen, pack of cards & wine glasses!
Finn was reliable & added to the pleasure of exploring Scotland, we couldnt have asked for more. Wild Campers staff were relaxed, happy & genuine throughout.
Scotland is beautiful & wild campers made it all a pleasant & relaxing adventure that we will remember for many years.”
Suzanne – June 2015
“It felt an absolute privilege to us to be allowed access to such a cherished VW camper van. Everything is executed to a very high standard. The carpentry inside is exquisite, with a specially designed place for absolutely everything – including the tea pot and the cafetiere. This meant there were hardly any rattles as we drove from place to place. Finn is very comfortable to drive, and the extra horses under the bonnet means it never feels under powered. Finn is much admired by many en route – with its distinctive colour and smart appearance.
Thank you for allowing us to use him, it’ll be hard to contemplate a more mass market solution next time we go. Thanks!”
Nicky & Guy – June 2015
“First time we’ve used this company. Van was brilliant – really well equipped, spotless, everything worked as it should. All arrangements for pick up and drop off went as planned. Plus it’s a beauty to drive. Will definitely be back for more, and I’d recommend Wild Campers Scotland to anyone thinking of hiring a camper van.”
Irene – May 2015
“It was clear that the interior modifications to the van were hand-crafted to a very high standard; much higher than in other vans that I had previously hired. The van really enabled us to have a great trip around Scotland and performed faultlessly. Only wish I could have one of these for myself! Thanks to Neil for the hire of the van and for making the hiring process so straightforward and honest.”
Paul – April 2015
“We have just returned from a fantastic ten day holiday around the Cairngorms, the West coast and Mull in “Finn”. Scotland is beautiful, the weather was kind to us (we sea-swam – briefly – in April) and we absolutely loved the freedom, adventure and isolation that we got in the campervan.
It was the first time that either of us had been on holiday together, let alone out in a campervan, and we were slightly worried about managing in the space. But you get used to living and cooking in it very quickly. Finn has been beautifully converted and all the equipment you need is slotted cleverly in the space and there is a reasonable sized fridge and storage space. You can sit around the table comfortably but you also have a different “garden” each day to sit out and eat in! Our favourites were the BBQ by the side of loch na keal (complete with a perfect West coast sunset), the lunch of fresh mussels picked up from a farm by the side of the road and cooked up in a bay next to a castle, and the breakfast in Carsaig with seals all around us.
Neil was really helpful in the run up to the trip (answering queries quickly and offering lots of useful advice) and Finn is clearly a labour of love (lots of people we came across complimented the van). Thank you to both of them for an amazing trip. We will be back.”
