Skye is nothing short of spectacular. With her eccentric and mesmerising charm, she is quite arguably one of the most eye-catching campers in our collection. Whilst located in the scenic coast and castles countryside of Northumberland, her owners describe her as a ‘Highland lass’ through and through, because of her famous connection with the Outlander Series. This camper oozes personality, from her recycled gymnasium flooring to her gothic window in coloured glass. Skye’s owners have created the perfect balance between rustic simplicity and bohemian style; with her natural and reclaimed wood, craftsmanship and colourful interior.

This camper sleeps two adults and 1 child, and has been designed with socialising in mind. There are two sofas, creating the perfect space to kick back and relax with a few friends in the evening.

For those looking to go off-grid, Skye offers you a unique and practical base. Panoramic views can be enjoyed all day through her back and side windows. There is a portable toilet situated behind the driver's seat and cleverly hidden inside an oak topped box. With an abundance of underfloor storage and space, there is plenty of room to pack up your wetsuits and your hiking boots for an action packed trip. Skye has been fitted with a full voyager 4500 cooker with grill and oven, so whether you’re looking to cook a full banquet or no fuss dinner, Skye’s got your back. For those needing digital connectivity, a 4G router, with antenna can be hired, along with a portable powerpack for additional power off grid

If you’re looking to shut yourself off from reality and enjoy some peace and quiet in the great outdoors, there is really no camper better suited, than Skye.

Conversion Story: Skye is a Highland lass through and through! Her name is aptly chosen - inspired by the magical misty Isle of Skye. A beautiful place that transports you to another world, much like Skye herself. Designed for off grid camping, Skye commenced her journey in the Highlands of Scotland, where she was lovingly created by ‘Rustic Simplicity’ who are fast becoming well known for developing exquisite, magical tiny homes. Skye is no exception. It is clear she evolved from a labour of love and creativity.

Skye was created during the 2020 Covid 19 lockdown. She went on through a strange set of circumstances to be involved in the ‘Men in Kilts’ series released in 2021, which is the story of a road trip around Scotland starring two of the Outlander stars: Sam Heughan who plays Jamie Fraser and Graham McTavish who plays Dougal Mackenzie. It’s just two guys travelling around the beautiful Scottish highlands, discovering the people and places in Skye, the very van you see here! The van features their signatures and a little hand written message from each of them on the top cupboard by the back doors. This can be seen in the photos. In addition, this van featured in a story about the Men in Kilts series, in the Scottish Field magazine. So if you are an Outlander fan, this is a fantastic opportunity to hire the actual van that took Sam and Graham on the trip of a lifetime!

Honestly we had the best time and it was such amazing service on Alice's behalf! She sorted out the insurance so amazingly, and everything was so clear. The van was really functional and easy to drive, and such a beautiful and artistic interior. We went with our little baby, and Alice bought a double seat for us upfront especially, so we could clip her in. Would highly recommend! Zaya

    INCREDIBLE! Highly recommended and would book again in a heartbeat! Trip of a lifetime with Skye. Fully equipped for every need. Easy to convert to set up sleeping, cook in the oven/stove, charge phones and other USB electronics, use the sink and taps, and just about everything. Our first Campervan experience ever for us. It was super smooth and with a very accommodating host/owner, Alice. The videos and instructions provided were clear and simple. Excellent communication. We are manual drivers with limited long/wide vehicle experience, we found Skye simple and enjoyable to drive. Many lovely touches and attention to detail. Cosy, comfortable and warm. We slept very well, when converted, the bed is very spacious and comfortable for the 2 of us. You can sleep with them as single beds as well as combining them. There is a pleasant heating system, however we didn't need to use it. We had Skye for 4 nights and it mostly rained, though we had no issues with the solar power. We are delighted to know 'Outlander' Tv show connection to the van and the autographs on there. Great value for everything included and quality holiday experience. Thank you Alice, we will be back and miss Skye already.
