Car Hire in The Scottish Highlands

Defender & Roof Tent Packages

We have a fleet of beautiful Land Rover Defenders available to hire for your next Overland adventure. 

Why a Defender? The short answer is, there is nothing else quite like a Defender! Timeless design, extremely capable in all weather conditions, rugged and practical for carrying both passengers and their equipment.

Our fleet consists of only ‘Puma’ Tdci Defenders which benefit from updated interiors, newer Ford engines and a more pleasant/quieter drive. We source the best vehicles we can find and maintain them to the highest standard so our customers have the best hire experience possible.

Our roof tents are supplied by industry leaders iKamper and Roof Cabin, guaranteeing their comfort and quality. These hardshell tents come with numerous benefits, including setup times of less than a couple of minutes, fantastic weather protection, inbuilt mattresses, elevated views from their 4 windows, telescopic ladders and the ability to simply park up your Defender and rest!

Each roof tent hire includes insurance, breakdown cover and an extensive range of kit. Our camping kits are comprehensive and include everything you will need for your adventure; sleeping bags, stove and cooking equipment, table and chairs plus much more! 

Further hire accessories are also available, including tent awnings, cool boxes and children’s seats.
