Rooftop Campers is a new and exciting venture for Highland couple Ben and Faye, set up during 2021 lockdown.
Ben and Faye have owned campervans for more than 25 years and have travelled extensively around Scotland and further afield. We love nothing more than an off-grid adventure somewhere remote and wild and we think the Scottish Highlands are hard to beat.
We have a family of 5 children (and 2 dogs and a few chickens!) and without a doubt the time we have spent outdoors with our family is the best time. We all love the rooftop tent and the feeling of being on safari and the extra space it provides. The views from the top are the icing on the cake. It also allows the children (or adults!) their own space – something our teenagers now demand along with Wi-Fi. We can’t guarantee the latter and would rather be without it!
Ben has converted several campervans and the ‘Macdui‘ has been his latest project during lockdown. When he isn’t converting vans, Ben runs an adventure company and is the chairman of the UK canyon guides, and Faye is a land manager with a great passion for the environment and nature. We would be delighted to help with any queries about places to visit or advise on adventures to be had.
Faye and Ben have travelled and worked across the world including in Ecuador, the USA, Sri Lanka, Canada, Austria, Spain, Iceland and Ghana but feel nothing beats the magic of the Highlands of Scotland. They decided to start a campervan hire company to allow others to have a Scottish adventure and to share our passion for the outdoors, for the big skies, highland scenery, nature and wildlife.
The Scottish Highlands have so much offer with majestic mountains and mysterious lochs. Pass through Britain’s largest National Park, witness dolphins frolicking off the Moray Coast, marvel at the sensational seascape of the North Highlands, or explore the stunning islands and stretches of coastline.
Our campervans are equipped with the iconic Skycamp rooftop tents, but if you want to use your own vehicle, we will easily fit the tent on it. Look no further because Rooftop Campers have the perfect solution for you!
Our campervans are all modern Ford Transit Customs. We find this size of van to be best suited to the roads of the Scottish Highlands; enough space for a family to travel with comfort, whilst being small enough to manoeuvre on the winding twisty roads. We use iKamper Skycamp roof tents on our vehicles.
If you wish to use your own vehicle and to hire a rooftop tent and our camping package only, iKamper Skycamp roof tents can be mounted on most vehicles on the market with their universal mounting system. They are strong and robust, the most suitable for our Scottish climate.

Our pick-ups and drop-offs are from Forres, which is 30 minutes east of Inverness airport unless otherwise arranged. We can offer airport pick-ups for an extra charge. Please, contact us if you require this.
Our insurance requires us to take a pre-authorisation for a £1,000 security deposit. This is as a pre-authorisation on your debit or credit card. This means the money doesn’t leave your account but you authorise us to take this in case of damages or an accident. If there are no damages, it will be released to you. Please, refer to the detailed T&Cs.
Yes, our campervans are pet-friendly but there won’t be space for more than one in the van unless you want to get cosy! Please, see the pet policy for more details.
You must be between 23 and 75 years old and with 2 years of driving experience post-licence to drive our vans.
We require return by 11am which gives us the time we need for the cleaning, turnaround and to prepare for the next adventurers.
Collection is from 3pm. Please, be in touch in advance so we know when to expect you otherwise we may not be here to hand over your vehicle. Please, allow 45 minutes at collection for the briefing on your van and to sign paper work.
