McKinnon Group Ltd, trading as Freedom Motorhomes (Formerly McKinnon Motorhomes, 2016-2019) aim to build the best Motorhome Hire company in Scotland and the UK.

Situated only a 12 minute drive away from Glasgow Airport, Freedom Motorhomes offer luxury motorhome hire for parties of 2-5 people.

With plans to add 7 motorhomes to the fleet this year, CEO David McKinnon and Managing Director Asha McKinnon began researching various funding options to support their plans to grow the business. Applying to Business Loans Scotland (BLS), Freedom Motorhomes were successful in receiving a £250,000 loan to realise their growth ambitions which in turn would also help create approximately 2-3 new jobs in the process.

Supporting small and medium sized businesses across Scotland with loans to start-up or grow, BLS offer loans from £25,000 to £250,000 to ensure that commercially viable proposals do not fail from a lack of access to finance.

Fully funded by the Scottish Government, BLS has issued loans to 155 businesses across Scotland to date totalling in excess of £12.5 million with loans being used for various purposes including to raise working capital, invest in office premises, increase marketing activity and to introduce new product lines to name a few.

Speaking of the loan issued, CEO of McKinnon Group, David McKinnon said:

“The team at BLS have been very helpful through the process, we would highly recommend reaching out to them.”

Fund Manager for Business Loans Scotland, Andrew Dickson added:

“The £250,000 loan issued to Freedom Motorhomes demonstrates our commitment to supporting small and medium sized enterprises across Scotland with finance to grow. Business Loans Scotland aims to fill the funding gap and I am delighted that we have been able to support Freedom Motorhomes plans to expand their fleet, increase marketing activity and create new employment opportunities in the local area. I look forward to watching the business flourish in the upcoming months and would encourage any Scottish SME looking for access to finance to speak with the team at BLS to see how we can help.”
