Description

Hey there, meet Mellow Yellow, our sun-kissed, absolute joy of a campervan. This sturdy little camper has been custom made for people looking to connect with Scotland up close in a swift and hassle free fashion. You drive Mellow Yellow effortlessly to each and every outpost of Scotland in this Volkswagen lt35 which is the (nearly) identical twin of Marshmallow (also on this site).

Cooking
Mellow Yellow's living quarters are compact but highly organised so everything is within hand reach. There is a little two pit gas stove and a grill underneath, pots and pans in the overhead cupboard and we generally keep condiments that guests leave behind in there as well. That way you probably won't have to buy items like sugar, tea, mayo and the like. The cool box under the bed keeps your food cool with ice packs.

Sleeping
There’s a fixed double bed, which runs lengthwise across the van, creating a long stretched bed (so the taller persons can stretch their legs). Very comfortable sleeper, and you can open the skylight to regulate the air.

Bikes/shower
We have a bike rack in case you need it. There is also a shower that can be used outside the camper and which is pump-and-spray.

Driving
The van handles like a dream and there is a stereo radio/cd player as well as an aux facility so you can play your own music via the car speakers. Bring your own aux cable to plug in the 3mm jack and also bring your own phone holder. There are various USB ports for charging your devices powered by a separate leisure battery which itself is powered by driving the camper.

Winter camping
Winter camping in Mellow Yellow can be done (my campers were booked up during the last two winters and guests came back raving) as it's well-insulated. The reality of winter road tripping is that at night you won't be cold in the bed. There is a tent heater too, but you'd be best off huddling around a warm fire in a pub (think apres ski) during the evenings and then diving straight into bed with a hot water bottle and a woolly hat when you are ready to sleep.

Campsites
For washing and generally keeping in touch with civilization, you could hit a campsite now and then - I have a list of the ones in the highlands that stay open in winter so just ask me and I'll forward it.

Wildcamping
Wildcamping (staying on the roadside overnight) is generally tolerated in Scotland. It's the Land of the Free after all. Most people do it without any problem, so long as you don't pitch up right on the doorstep of a campsite and keep the noise down.

We had such a great time touring around Scotland in our VW camper van! It has all the necessities, and is a very practical choice for seeing the countryside. You are able to sneak in places where larger RV's cannot, and it especially helps when on the single-track roads in rural areas. 10/10 for communication and fairness from Jacoba. She is very reasonable and super easy to talk to. We would 100% recommend using one of her vehicles for your camping vacation! August 2018
What you see is what you get. It is a small van, that has everything that you need for a basic and perfect trip in Scotland. Angelique is a good owner, and the communication for arrangements was perfect. We (to persons) had a trip of two weeks in this van, and we did really enjo it! May 2018
This car Mellow yellow:) was very good equiped, we spent 7 days on trip and we never had reason to complained. Of course you can find motorhome with more space and better equipment but for this price it was great deal. Owner this car Angelique thurned out to be very kind person. We was wery happy that we had oportunity to meet and cooperate with She. I sincerely recommend. Bartek September 2017
