We are renting out Mellow Yellow, our home converted VW campervan. The van is a brisk drive and will take you to the furthest backwaters of Scotland no problem.
It has powersteering and its manual transmission is very light to navigate. The full size fixed bed has a spring mattress and extends to King Size length so even the tallest traveler can rest their weary bones!
The little kitchen comes with a two pit gas stove that ignites by pressing one button and it also has a grill to toast your bread. The cooking unit and bed is where the luxury ends though. The rest of the van is very basic! The toilet is a bucket with a toilet seat - we use it by inserting a bin bag under the seat and disposing of this each and every time it's being used.
Spending a night in the van can be utterly romantic especially if you find a spot that is secluded. Those who are going to travel Scotland's NorthCoast500 route (the coastal route around the highlands that has just been completed, and that is Scotland's version of Route 66), will have no trouble finding good spots as this route is litterally breathtaking from start to finish (ie 500 miles worth of stunning scenery....).
Wild camping is a practice that is long established in Scotland and it is tolerated so long as you don't camp right on the door step of the camp sites (which are really not expensive anyway) or make a lot of noise.

Angelique was a great ‘host’; incredibly responsive and quick to reply when I had any questions. This was my first time ever in a camper, so I had a few to ask.... Angelique did a great job helping me close the knowledge gap and getting me on my way.
I have an unfulfilled ambition to build my own camper and my son recently suggested we rent one to see if we enjoyed the experience. After spending 2 nights in Mellow Yellow we can safely say YES! Van life is for us! We had so much fun exploring the Highlands and just enjoying the day at our own pace.
Mellow Yellow was warm and comfortable; a great little haven as Storm Ciara battered the rest of the UK. The bed was super comfy and spacious enough for us to share and the van was plenty spacious enough for us to wash, cook and relax after a day in the mountains.
On a side note, I run a property management company looking after Airbnb’s in Edinburgh. I’ve a lot of experience with hosts and guests. Angelique does everything right and understands that she is in the business of providing hospitality on wheels!
