Welcome to California Scotland. Scotlands Bespoke Campervan Hire Company.

We are Linda and Jeremy.

We have lived in Scotland since 1996 and love this country, its tempestuous climate and far reaching varied landscapes. We would even go as far as to say it is one of the few remaining unspoilt wildernesses in Europe, with all the mountains, glens, rivers, lochs, seas, islands, highlands, wild life, flora and fauna to explore.

We have travelled and camped from various means of transport over the years and in 2012 decided to go for the Rolls Royce of camper vans and bought the one and only VW California. This, without doubt, transformed the enjoyment, fulfilment and comfort of our adventures into the wild and blue yonder.

We then took a leap of faith, because of the immense pleasure we are having, to venture in a small, personal but perfect way and hire out our California, focusing just on experiencing Scotland.

Now we run a fleet of four VW California Ocean DSG Automatic camper vans. We have no intention of expanding, or turning into a large company. We want to keep it small, to carry on putting the care of our clients first.

Imagine exploring in twenty-first century comfort, safety, technology and pleasure of driving.
