After a 3 year wait, the new Defender is finally here. It looks great, but…. it’s a real shame the rear load space is so significantly reduced. It’s hard to see how we can use it to carry 4 people and all of our equipment. Our guess is that many other commercial users will have the same issue, and will be sticking with their pick-up trucks.

Laurence Rigo:  Retour à la réalité après 5 magnifiques jours en famille en Ecosse, notamment sur l’ïle de Mull! Voiture top et parfaitement équipée! Le dépaysement est total. Les paysages sont à couper le souffle. C’était une toute belle et confortable aventure! Merci Scotland Overland!

Super séjour en Ecosse pendant neuf jours pour notre voyage de noce !! Service parfait, très bien équipé avec des paysages de rêve. Merci infiniment Kerry et Duncan pour votre gentillesse et votre patience. Nous recommandons sans doute cette expérience, c’est une magnifique aventure!

The new year for us brings a new home. We’ve not moved far, but gained much more space. And we now have heating!

Our first-ever hard-shell tent has just been installed on one of our Defenders. The ikamper is a fantastic new tent which opens in less than a minute (yes, really). See the proof here.

We’ve also invested in the awning and annex room. We’ll be testing it out over the coming months, but already really impressed with it’s quality and unique features.

Clients took a drone on their recent trip. This is what 3 nights in Scotland can look like when the sun is out.

Our newest Hilux being fitted with its canopy by APB Trading Ltd & Expedition Equipment. These canopies by Bushtech Aluminium Canopies are heavy duty. If you want to see a man risk his life demonstrating their strength, see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avz2MQAeZbg

Scotland Overland is now officially 6 years old. Which got us thinking about how many miles our various vehicles have covered in that time between them. We reckon about half a million.

This is the standard awning our Hilux are equipped with. It’s 2.5m square, so ample space to change your underwear in comfort and privacy. And you can access the fridge from inside it, if you can’t face going outside to get another beer.

The Hilux is finally finished, and ready for the 2018 season!
