  • It was an absolute joy to call Silva 'home' for the week. I can't thank Anita & James enough, & the guys at Quirky Campers, they are so lovely & helpful.

  • We loved travelling around in Silva. It’s a super campervan - so cosy with a lovely heater too! It’s quirky & fun interior made for a wonderful holiday around the Highlands.

Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Silva's owners. We make every effort to ensure that all the vehicles listed with us are of a high standard but cannot guarantee the condition of the vehicle. If you experience any problems please notify us as soon as possible.

Starting life as a ski vehicle in the highlands, Silva followed the scent of woodsmoke to the workshop of artisans Anita & James, where she was lovingly crafted into a campervan using reclaimed whisky barrels & sustainable Scottish wood.

She's the perfect campervan to hire for a couple or a family of 3 with dreams of exploring Scotland. With her rustic, waney edges, you would be forgiven for waking up and thinking you're in the warm, cosy parlour of Bag End. 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.

    Conversion Story

    Silva began life up in the highlands as a ski vehicle. We are sure she will enjoy revisiting her old haunts, sometimes with big brother Hamish coming along for the ride! We have created her using reclaimed whisky barrel wood and other sustainable Scottish wood. Silva has a whimsical air about her - you would be forgiven for waking up and thinking you are right in the warm, cosy parlor of Bag End - 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!
