Open Road Hire Ltd. offers the legendary Caterham Seven for self-drive hire. Enjoy the ultimate fun car as you explore the great roads and scenery of northern Scotland and beyond. Cars can be hired by the day or for extended periods should you wish to tour, they are probably more spacious than you think, we had had one couple tour Scotland for 12 days with luggage and camping equipment, which we also have available. Multiple drivers can be insured to share the experience. We can provide detailed suggested routes if required. All cars have full weather kit and we are always happy to reschedule bookings if necessary. "Great cars, great roads and great service = great fun." Gift vouchers are also available and make truly wonderful gifts that are that little bit different. They are always appreciated.......we know as we see the smiling faces and huge grins returning after their special days!

Certainly you can argue that my memory is deceiving me, after all my trip with the CSR200 is 1.5 years old. You can also argue that I am biased, as I have been a fan of lightweight sports cars since 20 years and I am especially fond of cars made in the spirit of Colin Chapman. When my wife and... More

I booked the Caterham Hire as it was my boyfriends favourite car and a wish of his to drive one as well as been in the right location to visit family. We had the car for four days and neither of us wanted to give it back. We completed the Highland 500 and even with one day of horrendous weather... More

So good I had to come back for more… A very lucky recipient of a gift voucher (from my lovely partner) last year, the Caterham Highland Experience has been calling me back for more ever since. Upping the ante, I opted for a four-day, full North Coast 500 road trip and co-opted my best mate along as co-driver. Boyd is... More

I was lucky enough to win a days hire of the Roadsport SV, having not yet done anything for my recent 40th we decided to book an extra days hire.. Boyd, who runs the show is fantastic to deal with, he also advised us on a suitable place to stop on the West Coat (Kylesku Hotel - wonderful!). Upon picking... More

On the website, it says to be careful as you may hurt your jaw from smiling so much. This will happen. My only regret, I wish I had hired it for longer. Communication with Boyd was fantastic, very nice chap. If, you're thinking about, do it.

Not knowing what to expect from the Caterham we left being totally smitten. What a wonderful day we had motoring through the Cairngorms to Balmoral & Breamar. This was a birthday present for my husband and he absolutely loved driving all day. It was fast, noisy and thrilling & very comfortable as a passenger. Getting out had me in hoots... More

A long weekend away from London, touring the Highlands of Scotland and what better way than to drive the route in a Cosworth powered Caterham. This is perhaps the nearest it comes on 4 wheels to a motorbike, yet more sociable for your passenger! Boyd runs an impressive operation here, with safety first and foremost but also the levels of...

This was a gift from my son and was a rare treat! A day out round the wonderful scenery of Moray in a low slung open sports car! The sensation of speed is phenomenal! I went with an old pal and we grinned like burst bananas the whole duration of theCaterham experience! Not for the faint hearted, however!

One of my best experience ever beyond a wheel of a car. If you like to drive sports cars, and you are thinking of going on a road trip, it doesn't get much better than this. The Caterham Roadsport SV is such a wonderful car, absolutely brilliant!

Just been for my 4th visit to Boyd and his fabulous collection of Caterhams. This should come with a health warning as you will be so addicted that one visit will not be enough. I have now driven 4 different cars, 3 SV and 1 CSR and every year a Car has moved on and a new addition has arrived... More
