Head off on a glamping adventure

Ever wondered what the VW stands for on campervans?

A straw poll here at 5pm HQ came up with the answers ‘Very Wonderful, ‘Valiant Wanderer’ and ‘VIP Wagon’. All perfect descriptions, we reckon.

That’s because VW campers are the best way to travel. And should your van be decorated in snazzy Scottish tartan, then all the better.

Which is exactly what you get with the award-winning Tartan Camper Co., who are offering the chance of a glamping adventure in 2019 with today’s Big Deal.

So what are you waiting for? Your plaid chariot awaits you…

Tartan touring

You don’t need an excuse to head to the hills and enjoy a bit of glamping – Scotland’s stunning scenery is reason enough.

Whether you fancy camping, climbing, skiing, hill walking, cycling, golfing, fishing or simply chilling out in the countryside – and whether you want to head to beaches, mountains or lochs – it can all be done in a classic VW camper.
