Shakti is fresh, stylish and uncompromisingly practical. In other words the perfect Scotland campervan. Her owners searched and searched until they found their perfect base vehicle, then set about converting it into the camper of their dreams.
Modern, powerful and easy to drive, but big enough to fit the whole family. Shanti has everything you need meaning all you need to worry about is which road to take. On arrival just park up, pull out the awning and get the kettle on. The beds are already made and cupboards stocked ready for your family holiday. You don’t even need to worry about a campsite; with a built in toilet and shower and a solar panel on the roof, you’re self sufficient in the wildest of parkups. Hot running water and heating ensure total comfort.
It’s all in the details as they say, and we love that even the driver is taken care of with these plush sheepskin seat covers. The simple colour scheme is complemented by stunning Celtic detailing and clever storage solutions abound.
Centrally located, she is around a 90 minute drive from international airports in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, and is perfectly located to explore Scotland; from these cultural cities to national parks, loch Lomond or the isle of Mull or beyond.
There is so much to see and do and campervan hire is the perfect way to enjoy Scotland. Follow the open road and see where it takes you. Wonder off the beaten track or follow an itinerary; why not try the infamous North Coast 500 route. Wherever you go, Shakti will be your perfect companion.

Conversion StoryShakti is the realisation of a dream, we looked for many months for a van which had low milage, was modern and fast, fuel efficient, drove like a car and big enough to fit everything including the kitchen sink in. It was essential for me to be able to park up and get on with the adventure, minimum fuss and bother for setting up. You literally stop pull out the awning and get the kettle on. The beds are made and cupboards stocked. We wanted a Van that allowed us to weave unforgettable memories with our growing family. To explore the raw stunning scenery of Scotland and beyond, in comfort and style. We have not compromised on any part of this conversion.
