Who am I?

Hi my name is Julie and I have recently taken over the bookings from my Brother Craig as he has 2 small kids 1 of which is still a baby he and his partner have there hands full and wish to dedicate there time at the moment to the kids. I enjoy camping and travelling around our beautiful country I have mainly done this in a tent but now I share this beautiful campervan it makes the experience alot more. And I hope we can allow others to have holidays in our campervan to allow you the opportunity to see and appreciate how beautiful our country is. Although I share this van with my brother it will be myself dealing with all bookings. Please see below Craig's story.... Hi. My name is Craig and I went traveling for 1 month is Asia, 1 month in Vietnam, 1 month in China, 9 months Australia and finally 1 month in France. It was some of my best moments of my life. In this time I ment my French fiance and have 2 beautiful kids now. Now with my kids being so young it has put a hold on our traveling plans further a field. We decided to buy a camper van to travel with the kids more local and round our own beautiful country. So here we have our little van to help you travel around Scotland to enjoy all the sights we have been doing also. We hope you will enjoy our van and look forward to here from you and your adventures on your return. Thank You

Best holiday!! 

Betty is unreal and Julie is the best - so communicative, helpful and professional. We travelled around the highlands and along the North Coast 500 with reliable Betty, it was absolutely stunning. 

Betty's clever, well thought features makes her a joy to drive and comfort to stay in, I hope to rent Betty again one day:)

Thanks again Julie!

Everything went smoothly communication was very easy. Van drove like a dream, van had everything, super comfortable to sleep in. Everything was very straight forward

My friend & I had the best time on our adventure in Scotland with Betty Bongo! On arrival Julie ensured we knew everything there was to know about the van and made it clear that if we needed to, we could contact her whenever for help. The van was well kitted out which was ideal for us travelling from so far away it meant it was less to carry. We travelled from Kirkcaldy to Loch Lomond, Glenfinnan Viaduct, Isle of Skye, Ben Nevis & the Cairngorms and Betty did us proud. She was so easy to drive and very comfortable so we had a lovely time! Thank you for the adventure Betty!

Scotland is stunning. The renters are lovely and the van was fantastic. Betty is a well maintained van and she has a great heater inside so travelling in winter is easy and comfortable.

We had an incredible trip to the Isle of Skye in Julie's fantastic van! It was in great condition and really comfortable with everything you could need. Thanks again Julie, we hope to be back one day!

Nous espérons que vous aurez autant de plaisir à voyager que nous en avons eu

Craig and his wife were really nice to us. The weather was so bad that we had to come back to Edinburgh sooner than expected. Craig was really nice to us and accepted to take back the van a couple of days before we had too. Thank you really much for everything

On a passé un super voyage à bord du van pendant 5 jours ! Il y avait tout ce qu’il fallait ainsi qu’un chauffage qui n’était pas négligeable à cette période de l’année et qui a rendu nos nuits très confortables. Nous n’avons pas pu rencontrer Craig mais Blandine qui a été vraiment sympa et s’est rendue disponible pour nous. Encore merci ! Un très bon souvenir de voyage, je recommande le van de Craig et Blandine ☺️

November 2019
Nous avons passé trois semaines dans ce van pour découvrir l’Ecosse et c’était génial ! Le van est facile à conduire, fonctionnel avec ses rangements et son aménagement, il y a tout le nécessaire à l’intérieur pour cuisiner mais Craig et Blandine nous ont aussi fourni le nécessaire pour que notre voyage soit le plus confortable possible. Ils ont été à notre écoute et très agréables. Craig a été très arrangeant (et souriant!) pour notre lieu de rencontre et il nous a également posé à la gare le jour de notre retour. C’était vraiment un plaisir de le rencontrer et nous recommandons à 200% son van ! Notre voyage en Écosse sera un beau souvenir à bord du Mazda Bogo de Craig ! Perfect van, East to drive, very functional ! Craig and Blandine were really nice and accomodating. It was a pleasure to meet Craig and our trip to Scotland will always be a good memory...!

The owners are very nice et availible.

The van was very fonctionnal.

We enjoyed our stay in Scotland.

We will definetely come back there !


October 2019

Sorry Craig, but I will speak french! 

 

Craig est très sympa, arrangent et à un bon sens de l’humour! Il a été une rencontre très agréable! 

Quant au van, il est très fonctionnel, fourni avec le matériel qu’il faut et à un prix très raisonnable! 

Par ailleurs, la boîte automatique est un plus non négligeable! 

Sa petite taille est très pratique sur les petites routes d’ecosses! 

 

Tres bonne experience! 

 

Merci Craig 😉

The van is great! Easy to drive and very reliable thanks to 4x4 wheel drive and automatic gear! If you extend the roof there is a lot of space inside to cook and wash the dishes. For us (two “normal sized” girls) there was enough space to sleep comfortably on the mattress downstairs. Throughout the journey Craig was super helpful to help us with all kind of questions and issues we had. Definitely recommend! Thank you Craig for such a great holiday!

Nous avons eu la chance de parcourir le Nord de l'Ecosse avec le van de Craig. Aventure qui nous tenait tres a coeur mais qui malheureusement avait du etre annulée dans un 1er temps car l'ancien van de Craig avait rendu l'ame quelques semaines avant. Nous nous etions rabattus sur une location de voiture mais à 15 jours du depart Craig nous a recontacté pour nous annoncé qu'il avait un nouveau van de 10 ans plus jeune que le précédent ! !!! Nous avons sauté sur l'occasion et n'avons pas regretté... Deja par la rencontre avec Craig qui a été plus que bienveillant avec nous pour se rattraper de la 1ere annulation et puis sa femme Blandine française qui nous a bien aidé pour l'organisation. Le van est tres compacte et donc parfait pour les petites routes. Il a tout ce qu'il faut et le moteur marche parfaitement mais forcement un peu bruyant vu son age. Qui dit compacte dit petit lit, nous sommes plutot de la taille lutins nous avons pu trouver notre place mais nous avons hésité à faire lit a part , un sur le toit et l'autre sur la banquette. Et il faut bien ecouter les conseils de Craig pour ne pas vider la batterie... Bref nous ne pouvons que vous conseillez de tenter l'aventure!!!

This is a very comfortable and reliable van. Perfect vehicle for a road trip. The owner was very accomodating and helpful, so we can highly recommend it. We had an amazing trip and even weathered a heavy storm. Sweet memories of Scotland!


August 2019
The van literally exceeded our expectations!!! :) It was our first time renting a van, so we had a few questions to which Craig answered it all prior to the pick up date. The van was available from a village nearby Edinburgh, and Craig offered to drop it in the city centre for just £25, which was great! All explanations were given at the pick up time, and Craig also remained available for further questions and assistance we did require during our renting period. The van is super cute, practical, super easy to use and drive around. We are fairly small girls, so the downstairs part was just perfect for us two to sleep, there is also an additional space to sleep upstairs once the roof is up. The van was also provided with loads of amenities, such as sleeping bag, pillows and pillow cases, cutlery, plates, mugs etc.... but also small amenities we would not have thought to bring with us but super useful on day to day basis such as salt, pepper, olive oil, kettle etc We had an amazing time, and already can't wait to return!!!! Enjoy Scotland!

Lovely couple. Sounds like they had a blast and wow did they take full advantage of the campervan. Was great to hear of the trip. They done and seen so much, that's what it's all about Betty Loved doing the NC500 with you aswell as the Isle of Skye. Although she loved having a wee rest while you climbed Ben Nevis! Well Done Guys! Thank you for looking after Betty
