Hobbity cupboards and nooks abound, and there is a magical swivel chair which can join the others at the table - or gaze out at the wonderful view of your choice!
With a comfy double bed & gas heating, running water, a fridge, a sink, and hobs for cooking, Silva is able to provide for your creature comforts whether the rain's pattering on the roof, or the evening sun is glowing through the open windows.
You'll find the attention to detail in Silva impeccable. She even comes with a birdwatching book and binoculars - so if you're looking for campervan hire in Scotland, let the humdrum drift away & get back in step with nature's pace in Silva.
