Risk-free Adventures! Well the booking part is at least… the rest is up to you.

Book your Scotland Overland adventure now and if you can’t travel as planned due to Covid restrictions you can re-schedule or cancel and receive a full refund. 

So, the question is… will you choose a Land Rover Defender or a Toyota Hilux from our fleet of fully equipped vehicles? They’ve spent a long winter in our workshop and are raring to get back out on the road as soon as restrictions are lifted….

Patrick Fee, a client who took one of our Land Rovers on a trip last year, has written a blog of his trip here.

Farewell 2020 – hopefully there will be many more opportunities for adventures in 2021!

To help you plan your trips with confidence, we are offering risk free booking for next year: so if Covid restrictions hamper your travel plans, you will automatically be able to rearrange or get a refund.

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2021!

It’s our 10th birthday!

Here’s one from our first photo shoot, with our first brand new Defender.

What can we say… it’s been an adventure! Here’s to many more….

Warning: Defenders can be addictive! Clients were so hooked after their trip with us they’ve just bought themselves this beauty….

We tried the new Defender at the weekend. Must say, it was very nice. We still can’t quite work out how to make the reduced luggage area work for us. But watch this space….

Our first post-lockdown clients have already returned from their trips, and happily reported that around Scotland everything is steadily returning to normal.

Here’s hoping that with sensible precautions this continues!

Happily, today many lockdown restrictions have eased in Scotland. Pubs, restaurants, museums and tourist attractions can now open.

Scotland has had nearly a week without any Covid 19 related deaths, and we obviously hope this continues with the sensible precautions being taken.

We are very interested to finally see pictures of the new Ineos Grenadier, which has been revealed today. It’s much closer in spirit and design to the original Defender than Land Rover’s own new Defender is.

It is due for launch in late 2021. Given that Land Rover’s new Defender doesn’t seem to have sufficient interior load space for us to be able to consider it, this may better fit the bill. We look forward to seeing it in the flesh.

Ineos is a British chemical company, but with the demise of the original Defender, it has seen the opportunity to build a truly utilitarian vehicle.
