Kind of a big day! Welcome to Tartan Campers HQ! We are delighted to introduce our new HQ where we will run our rental business and CAMPERVAN CONVERSION business starting 3rd Jan 2019.

Posted by The Tartan Camper Co on Friday, 2 November 2018

The multi-award winning team at The Tartan Campervan Company were delighted to today collect the keys to their new HQ at Olympic Business Park, Dundonald this week.  The company has seen strong growth over the last two years in particular.  They were also delighted to recently retain their title of Best Campervan / Motorhome Rental Company 2019 at the Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards.  The team was also honored to be finalists in the Tourism Category at the Ayrshire Business awards.  This coming year will see the company add to their rental fleet and move to their new base.

Director, Stuart Shepherd said, “We have simply outgrown our previous location. This move to our newly renovated headquarters gives us the confidence to grow our business even further.”

The company have been providing alternative holiday adventures since 2011. Since a change of ownership in 2016 have grown the fleet to 9 vehicles. The company offers a variety of VW Campervans some as old as 35 years young for enthusiasts looking for that retro feel.

For those new to the campervan scene, the business offers a modern fleet of VW T5s. These vehicles come with modern interiors and a modern driving experience.

2019 will also herald a new direction for the business as they move into the campervan conversion market.  From January the team is delighted to offer high-quality conversions handcrafted at the new HQ by our highly skilled team of conversion experts.

Stuart added, “We are investing a considerable amount of capital into this new venture. We are looking forward to offering great value to those adventurers looking to purchase their own VW campervan.  This year we will create 4 new full and part-time jobs here in Ayrshire.  The Ayrshire area is important to us and although we had options to relocate to Central Scotland we are proud to say we are an Ayrshire Business.”

Happy New Year 2018!

The team at the Tartan Campervan Company got 2018 off to a great start by taking part in the New Year’s Day Dook at South Beach.  Along with 15 other brave souls, Stuart took the plunge into the icy waters to raise money to help send local children and adults with disabilities to Lourdes.  This year the Dook was proudly supported by Rowan and the young Camper Clan who provided teas and coffees to help warm up ‘dookers’ and spectators alike.  Overall a great way to start the year and from all of us at The Tartan Camper Company we’d like to wish you all the very best for 2018.

Elf On A Shelf Lends A Hand at The Tartan Campervan Company

The Tartan Camper Company received a very special helping hand on Friday night as the Elf on a shelf pit crew appeared to change a tyre The Bruce.  With the new tyre being delivered that afternoon we hadn’t had the chance to fit it but overnight the Elves took it upon themselves to do the work for us and even had time to pinch our camera and take a photo of them at work.

As you all get ready for Christmas what better present than giving that relative who always talks about going away in a campervan that gentle nudge and present them with a Tartan Campers gift voucher.  We can provide vouchers to any value and they are a brilliant gift for those special people in your life who would love to taste life on the open road and just need that extra encouragement.

Back at Tartan Campers HQ, unfortunately,  the Elves didn’t seem to have time to wash any of our campervans it but there are still a few nights before Santa is due so you never know…….
