Motorhome Hire Scotland - Testimonials
Please find below recommendations of our services and testimonials from our customers...
April 2013 - James, Karen & Family , Hawick, Scottish Borders:
We have hired previously from Gordon and Corinne and after the great motorhome holiday we had the last time, we had no hesitation in hiring from them again. The motorhome we were provided with was brand new,equipped to the highest standard and was immaculately clean. The exclusive wild camping list that Gordon and Corinne have compiled was invaluable in helping us pre plan our trip around the west coast and western isles of Scotland. The pictures below show two of the lovely spots we stayed overnight on Harris.
We will definitely be back to hire from Scottishtourer again and thank Gordon and Corinne for there warm, friendly and thoroughly comprehensive service.
April 2013 - David & Gail, Edinburgh:
We had an amazing time touring around the Highlands and Islands of Scotland within the UK using a Fiat 644 motor home from Scottish Tourer. The vehicle was absolutely fantastic and the additional features installed provided a luxurious home for the period of our 12 day holiday. Both Gordon and Corinne were exceptionally helpful and provide a very good service. Holiday to remember and definitely recommended.
April 2013 - The Davidson Family, Forfar:
This was a brand new way of holidaying for us, and something we had wanted to do for quite a while. After a week of touring the Outer Hebrides and Skye we came back having had a terrific time with some excellent weather along the way. Gordon and Corinne were both extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional. From our initial enquiry right through to the end of the hire we knew we were dealing with good people, and the vehicle that was home to us for the week was superb, spacious and comprehensively kitted out. Overall, the whole experience was a positive one for us and I am certain that it is something we will do again.
April 2013 - Marc & Audrey, France:
We were more than happy to choose scottshtourer motorhome because we really felt we were dealing with a another couple somewhere in scotland who really wanted us to have a great holiday. Being french, we like to complain but didn't find much to say.... great help and advice from the beginning : we almost changed all our previous plans to go with your last minute advice just before taking the motorhome. Going for less route (not more than 150km a day) to be able to really enjoy each place with one stop a day. The motorhome we had being the top class one was just a palace inside and us only being a couple really felt super confortable all the way. I already had the chance to use a motorhome once before with my dad's and remembered the pain when driving up a hill at 90 km/h maximum! This one could stay in 6th gear up to 120km/h in a hill! No problem...
And the most important, the country is just amazing, we stayed 10 days and will advice all future customers of scottish tourer to go up to inverness with a quick stop a Blair Castle/House of Bruar - to then pitstop around Fort George for the night. And then spend all your time on the west coast + Skye which is the place to be. Applecross area and its road is a no miss - if you get the sun it will be a highlight of your stay.
We will conclude on the fact that you don't get much sun in scotland, but in april we had it 50% of the time still. And the scenery on the mountains with the snow at the peak is even more enjoyable when having wind and rain, it really feels like a pure scottish experience. With some Talisker in your motorhome you always find something to drink when looking at the view.
Again, you can really trust Gordon & Corrine 100% percent, and I was not paid to write this message... unlike many messages you can read on testimonials. ScottishTourer is just the way not to have any surprise for your motorhome scottish holidays.
April 2013 - Ken & Jane, Edinburgh:
Before writing this review , I thought I would have a look at previous testimonials on the website and I am hard pressed to find something new to say , as I can only agree with the comments about the helpfulness and expertise of Gordon and Corinne and the beautiful brand new motorhome that they trusted us with!
This was a first foray for us into motorhoming and the realisation of an ambition to see something of our own beautiful country, after years of foreign travel. The motorhome turned out to be a perfect way to do this and we were blessed with wonderful weather - although the nights were freezing , this didn't bother us because of the heating system.
As we were visiting the islands of the Outer Hebrides, Ken had done a certain amount of planning and booking ferries to ensure we could get from island to island, but within the plan we enjoyed the freedom to change our minds and although we did mostly use sites,it is reassuring to know that if you don't find anything suitable you can be self sufficient.
One thing that no one had told us about was that as soon as you are driving a motorhome you become a member of an unofficial 'club', as the drivers give each other a little acknowledging wave as they pass by - a nice touch of old fashioned courtesy, in this modern age.
The trip was a great success and I'm sure we will have more in the future. We would not hesitate to recommend Scottish Tourer as they really seem to care that their customers have a great experience.
April 2013 - The Gheleyns Family, Kain, Belguim:
We are just back from a one-week sunny (but cold) holiday in Scotland where we really had a nice stay. As a family with 4 young kids (aged 8 tot 4), we thought a motorhome would be the best solution to travel through the country, and we were right.
When we arrived at the airport in Edinburgh Gordon came and fetched us up. Gordon and Corinne then took all the necessary time to provide us the information we needed not just about the motorhome itself, they also gave us advice on where to go, what to see, where tot eat, which way to drive (or not!). We also received leaflets with things to do and see and a handy road map with personal annotations (very useful !).During the holiday Gordon and his wife were available to answer our questions. So it was not just motorhome rental, it really was a full and professional service.
In the motorhome self, everything was very clean and well prepared and we found everything we needed. It was very comfortable and practical. While driving, the kids could read, play, watch DVD's or even sleep. We used to decide where to sleep at the end of each day... sleeping in the nature (wild camping is common in Scotland) of in a campsite (no reservation on forehand, place everywhere and always a good contact with kind people). The motorhome gave us a great feeling of freedom and intimacy at the same time... I recommend it for everyone who loves the nature . As far as we are concerned we're looking forward to coming back to Scotland next year!
October 2012 - The McNeill Family, Bayswatter, Australia:
Firstly we thought your website was the best out there and the fact you were hiring out a new fleet of vans was an absolute plus. We loved the fact too that as much as this is a business for you guys it is your passion too. It was great to know who you were dealing with from the very first enquiry. You have been extremely successful in providing that personal touch, which so many businesses out there lack these days. You both quite literally are prepared to go that extra mile or several hundred to look after your customers as we found out on our holiday!
It was lovely to be invited into your home and put us at ease about our adventure in our new holiday home on wheels as we had never hired a motorhome before. We will definitely repeat the experience again, but will only be hiring from you guys as I am sure we would only be disappointed to hire from anyone else. We only wished we had had more time. Scotland is just such a beautiful country, we could of stopped every two minutes to take photos and we absolutely could being in the motorhome.
Every aspect of the booking process was easy from start to finish which is completely down to you both being efficient and knowing your business so well. To know too that we could ask lots of questions at any time before and during our trip was really reassuring. So congratulations on running such a tight ship and thank you for a stress free holiday experience.
We wish you both all the very best and continued success for your business.
October 2012 - Simon & Sharon, Broughton, Northamptonshire:
We arrived to find a beautifully presented motorhome. Although the motorhome had covered over 13,000 miles it appeared brand new and was a testament to both Gordon's and Corrine's attention to detail. It was also a testament to previous clients of Scottish Tourer who had clearly looked after it!
We spent our week touring the North Highlands starting on the west coast. Stunning scenery and a very intersting drive over the pass to Applecross! Gordon was very good at giving us the confidence to explore remote places and explaining where we could, and could not, safely go.
From Applecross we headed around the coast heading nortwards and the sheer beauty, and most spectacukar scenery that we encountered over the next few days will stay with us forever. Being high up in the motorhome is also a considerable advantage for making the most of the scenery and views. Many roads were single track, with passing places, but there was so little traffic that this was never a problem. We got as far as Durness, at the very top, and then travelled down inland through Lairg to Dornock on the east coast . We could often drive for many miles without seeing another car.
The weather during our trip, in early October, was equally spectacular and changeable. The sky was as interesting as the land, and perfectly in line with the very special atmosphere and feeling that comes with being in remote areas of the Scottish Highlands. Despite covering over 700 enjoyable miles in our week, we didn't get to see or do everything that we had planned, therefore it seems we will have to return at some point... as soon as possible!
October 2012 - The Walker Family, Isle of Man:
This was the first time we had ever been in a motor home and i can't wait to do it again When you see them at first it's hard to believe how spacious they are inside just like a home from home One of the best things was jut being able to stop and set up for the night where ever you wanted no looking for camp sites. I would recommend this to everyone.
October 2012 - James & Lynn from South Wingfield, Derbyshire:
We really enjoyed our holiday, the camper van was immaculate and very easy to drive. It was so comfortable with plenty of room and storage, so much in fact that we ended up leaving some stuff behind in the van! However you posted that onto us and it arrived perfectly. Very well packaged.
Wild camping was brilliant and we only used a campsite twice in order to load up again with water and power. One of the best holidays we've had.
October 2012 - The Green Family, Edinburgh:
We had a tremendous holiday in our motorhome. As first timers it was very comforting to be guided by Gordon and Corinne through exactly what we needed to know prior to booking - which was a lot. The demonstration on how to use the motorhome when we picked it up was almost too comprehensive, but it did mean that we coped with being self sufficient in the Outer Isles with no problems.
We chose these motor homes because they were guaranteed as being no more than 6 months old. We are so glad we did because the motorhome was as good as new.
I am sure we will motorhome again and we will definitely return to Gordon to hire from.
October 2012 - The Ingram Family, Bishopbriggs:
We hired the luxury 2 berth motorhome for a 5 day break to Harris & Lewis Via Skye.
This was our first motorhome adventure but will not be our last, (Gordon showed us around the new luxury model that will be available next year which we hope to hire). After getting off to a bad start by us not bringing the duvet, Corrine quickly sorted us out.She also put the gas fire on as she showed us around the motorhome and all the controls.We could not have been paying to much attention as on the first night when it was getting dark we could not get the lights to work ! a quick call to Corrine and we were sorted.
Just to say we had a great time and are looking forward to the next time already! Your personal service and attention to detail was really appreciated (supplying the bedding when I thought we just had to supply the sheets etc.). I have attached just a few of my photos (proof of the sunny, but cold weather !)
Hope you have a good holiday and don`t wear out the new toy ( Bessacar Deluxe Motorhome) as I want it in good condition when I get it next year!
We wild camped the four nights, near Uigg the first night then ferry over to Tarbert. The next two nights were spent in total isolation at beaches on Harris and Lewis and the last night was at Tarbert for the early ferry return to Skye.(There is a water tap and you can dispose of your waste at the toilets at the tourist information near the ferry).
I had a great time driving the motorhome about 600 miles,even on single track roads (I only met the postman on the Golden road on Harris) ! Gordon gave good advice with respect to the size of the motorhome, reversing etc. We could not get the tv to work as we were out of signal however the cd/radio went on and the books got read as the last of the dog walkers left the beach we were left in total isolation total silence and total darkness ! to wake the following morning to beautiful weather and a walk on a deserted beach.
The quality of service, back up and the motohome could not be faulted. The whole motorhome experience, the beautiful weather and great scenery made for a very relaxing holiday. We shall return!
September 2012 - Richard & Maureen, Cheltenham:
Found 'Scottish Tourer' very easily on the internet search engine but pleased to find that their testimonials are obviously from real clients unlike the rubbish you read on 'Trip Adviser'. Everything written about them was born out by our own experience. Gordon and Corinne are obviously passionate about motorhomes and it shows in the fantastic condition of the 2 / 4 berth motorhome we rented that was like new even though this was late September and they we due to sell it in October.
They went over every detail of the motorhome clearly and with humour, from a position of many years of experience.We had a fabulous time on Skye and Harris wild camping. This was our first experience of having a motorhome and it couldn't have been easier. Motorhomes have moved on a huge amount in the last few years and bear no resemblance to camping. There is certainly no roughing it, the facilities are fantastic and very easy to use., even emptying the toilet. I would recommend 'Scottish Tourer' to anybody and indeed if I was looking at buying a motorhome I would buy one from them at the end of the season.
We will certainly be back.
September 2012 - Paul & Ginny Gooch, N.S.W Australia:
Highly recommend Scottish Tourer Motorhome Hire, this has been the best holiday ever. we have been everywhere we wanted to go without any hassle what so ever. the motorhome is well equipped and well just lovely and the owners of the company have assisted us at every turn and have been truely wonderful with our requests for trips to Ireland, early pick-up at the station, transfers to airport etc.
The motorhome has traversed over much of scotland, england, wales and Ireland since we have had it without a single problem. It is easy to drive and can handle small back roads, highways,hilly climbs and goes on/off ferrys easily. My husband and I have had the most amazing 28 days on board this beauty of a motorhome and are already planning our next trip back from Australia to discover more of this magnificent country and will definately be contacting Gordon and Corrine at the scottish tourer motorhome hire.
September 2012 - John & Janet Roddan from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire :
The holiday we had with your motorhome was a great experience and has left us wanting to do it again. Like most clients I guess, we did quite a bit of research on the internet before deciding to book with Scottish Tourer. And to be honest when I read most web sites testimonials I get a bit sceptical and cynical - can the experience really be that good? But I have to say that meeting you and Corinne and being welcomed into your home having been given such a comprehensive briefing on the vehicle itself exceeded expectations. Your passion and enthusiasm for your business, your clients and a desire to make sure that we made the most of our time in Scotland can be felt through your web site, from the first contact we had by telephone and email, and throughout the time we spent in the van itself. Your attention to detail gave us the assurance that even though we were complete novices with a motorhome we knew that help and support were there both in terms of the documentation and paperwork in the motorhome and we knew you were on the other end of a telephone if needed. Fortunately we didn't need to call you! The motorhome itself was fabulous. It felt brand new, it was very comfortable and perfect for exploring Scotland. Once I got used to the size of the vehicle it was really easy to drive and manoeuvre. The ability to find 'wild camping' places and the flexibility the motorhome gave us added to the sense of adventure. We met some fascinating people in our travels including a lady on a bicycle who wanted to take our photograph for her diary one evening when we were having a barbeque up the road from Applecross, and the retired climate change scientist running the little museum in one village we visited who said we could fill up with water from the hose at the back of his cottage if we needed to. If anyone has ever had the urge to try a holiday in a motorhome but were apprehensive about how to go about it then my recommendation would be to pick up the phone and talk to Gordon and Corinne and get it booked!
September 2012 - David & Patricia, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire :
This was my first hire of a Motorhome in UK and chose Scottish Tourer to avoid the long drive from the South of England, and to be able to speak to local staff who know the areas most suitable to visit. The real winner was however Scotland the scenery on the West coast around Skye and Applecross must be one of the finest anywhere in the world. Following the advice and suggestions from Gordon we visited areas we would not usually have seen and Wild camped in places, such as beneath the Cullins overlooking the Lock Slapin towards Torrin only to be found by those that know are accessible with the Motorhome.
The Motorhome was new and in perfect condition and proved very easy to drive, particularly the additional reward camera made reversing and watching out for overtaking vehicles all the easier. This attention to detail was also seen in the cutlery and china ( yes china), all of which made a real difference to the comfort and enjoyment of the holiday.
I would warmly recommend Scottish Tourer with their efficient no fuss handovers , modern well equipped vehicles genuine local knowledge , and although the map is now well worn contains valuable extra details added by Gordon to indicate good camp sites, restaurants and places to take extra care. These extra details show the attention to detail Gordon & Corinne take to make the holiday all the more enjoyable, and of course there is the scenery of Scotland, regardless of the weather.
September 2012 - Stewart & Stephen, Edinburgh:
We hired from Gordon and Corinne a luxury 2 berth Swift Motorhome for a week in Sept '12. The whole experience was without issue, the Motorhome was well presented and very clean, it was very new and up to date with additional features such as satellite TV, wedges for level parking, awning, barbecue with table and chairs. We had a thoroughly enjoyable tour of the West of Scotland including the Isle of Skye and the vehicle was well equipped to facilitate wild parking.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Scottish Tourer to anyone looking to hire a modern, up to date Motorhome. The useful hints and tips we received from Gordon and Corinne regarding wild camp sites etc added to the enjoyment of our holiday.Fortunately the scottish weather was extremely kind to us.
August 2012 - The Guzzo Family: Verona, Italy:
Our experience with Scottish Tourer has been positive since the beginning. Gordon and Corinne answered quickly and friendly with complete information. The price was the best we could reach from different hire companies, above all for the extras ans services included. The caution was not to high, and that's important expecially for people coming from abroad. The family business makes contacts informal and simple, Gordon and Corinne was very kind, showing us an itinerary we could follow, great restaurants and places to overnight. I certainly suggest to travel with Murray's family's motorhomes!
La nostra esperienza con Scottish Tourer è stata positiva fin dai primi contatti. Gordon e Corinne si sono subito mostrati disponibili e veloci nel rispondere alle nostre richieste di informazioni. Il prezzo pattuito era sicuramente il più onesto rispetto ai molti preventivi ricevuti, soprattutto considerando i molti extra compresi nella quota. La cauzione temporanea richiesta è ragionevole e i servizi offerti corrispondono alle promesse fatte. L'impresa famigliare rende i contatti molto più semplici e informali, aiutando anche chi ha qualche problema con la lingua. Gordon e Corinne sono stati gentilissimi, preparando anche un itinerario adatto alla durata del nostro soggiorno, suggerendoci luoghi dove pernottare, posti da vedere e dove trovare ottimi ristoranti. Consiglio a chiunque voglia viaggiare attraverso la scozia in Camper di affidarsi alla famiglia Murray!
August 2012 - Gerte & Joke, From Netherlands:
The route we make ourselves with some tips from you . The Hebrides especially Barra there was beautiful. It is best to locate a campsite near the coast because of the mosquitoes!!! The ferry crossing there was beautiful, we have seen six whales. Also when we go back from Stornoway- Ullapool. We visit the Calanais Stones. On the North we follow the rout John O'Groats. Beautiful! We have free camped. We took water by the ferry and the gas pumps. Even if we saw a nice place where you could not spend the night, we asked and we were allowed in two cases there surely are So we are at a pier where Queen Elisabeth with the Britannia landed in order to go to visit with her mother at Castle Mey. This castle we have also visited. It was close to our camping place. From this Castle you see the Orkney island. We see them because the weather was beautiful. Sun!We have also at a beautiful location along the water at a fish processing plant. (Schottish Sea farm) We also try to visit the Old Man or Store but the weather was very bad. Here it would be an improvement if the path it would be made known how long the walk to the Old Man is! We were surprised that it is a very long walk to get there. We didn't finist the walk!:( Of course we vistit campsites for the cleaning of the toilet and for the laundry. Sometimes you have a long search, but then you find often beautiful spots to free camping. The route that we send you : the camperpictures (the little campers) mean that we found a free camp. The pictures with the flag is that we vistit a campsite. On the Hebrides were the hills purple. Heather flourished abundantly. We have also seen that many sheep running around loose everywhere. Lots of peat fields where also peat. The Island Sky we visit this Island in 2007 for a short trip, now we visit the more of this Island. We make a trip to the Talisker Whiskey company!
August 2012 - The Hewitt family, Maidenhead :
We booked a week in August with Scottish Tourers, for me and my husband and our two children (aged 4 and 7). The motorhome was well equipped and comfortable and Corinne and Gordon were more than happy to help whenever we had a query, whether it was in the run up to the holiday or during the holiday itself.
A motorhome holiday in Scotland is magical. For the first time, my children were dumbstruck by the natural beauty of a place. Each day was an adventure for them and they never tired of seeing new places.
At the end of the holiday, I asked my kids how our holiday in Scotland compared to our previous two holidays in the Canary Islands. Gran Canaria got 85/100, Lanzarote got 82/100 and our motorhoming holiday scored a massive 95/100. No small feat, considering how much they love their beach holidays...
August 2012 - David & Patricia, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire :
This was our first holiday in a motorhome and we found it was one of the best holidays we've ever experienced. We had great support from Gordon and Corinne, any time of the day or night, if needed, and nothing was too much trouble. Their service included excellent advice and instruction prior to taking charge of the vehicle and plentiful, useful advice on routes to follow and on wild camping sites, places to visit, good food shops (this included an excellent butchers in Ullapool). The motorhome was in excellent condition and spotlessly clean throughout.
The motorhome allowed us the freedom to explore the magnificent scenery in the Highlands, some nights we wild camped, on others we stayed at campsites.
One night, we wild camped at the Aviemore ski centre, at the top of the Cairngorm and the views were stunning from the very top. There was even pockets of snow on one of the mountains next to us, and this was August! We usually only take a few photos on holiday, but in the highlands, we took around 150! The views on our trip were so fantastic. We would certainly recommend to our friends and family to use Scottish Tourer Motorhomes, and we ourselves, would certainly book with them again. Their service to customers is excellent. The photo below is taken from the top of Cairngorm.
August 2012 - The Howlett Family, Kettering, Northamptonshire:
We would like to thank you for the hire of the fabulous 6 berth Scottish Tourer Motorhome for our holiday touring Scotland and for all of your valuable advice and recommendations for places to visit and some of the most amazing roads and best routes.
The motorhome was very stylish, attracting many admiring glances, everything that we could have hoped for and more. It was absolutely immaculate and very comfortable with ample space, for a not so small family of 4, and fitted out with every facility that we could possibly want.
We were looking for a 'different' sort of holiday this year, getting away from the usual package deal and heading off to find adventure whilst touring an area of the UK that we had not visited before. As parents of 2 girls (11 and 16) it was also important to us that this should be a family holiday that we would all enjoy.
I must admit that I found the thought of driving, what is quite a large vehicle, fairly daunting, and felt very nervous driving away for the first time. However I was very surprised at how quickly I became accustomed to the motorhome, by the time we arrived at our first overnight stop, I felt very comfortable driving and was soon enjoying the elevated driving position and looking forward to the adventure ahead.
Although the motorhome is fully equipped to be totally self sufficient for wild camping, we chose a mixture of wild camping, finding some fabulous remote places, as well as staying on few established campsites, providing an opportunity to meet up with fellow holiday makers. The variety and choice of both wild and organised campsites throughout Scotland made for a great holiday with close family time as well as social days and evenings out.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time touring Scotland. The motorhome was the perfect way to explore the fabulous wild and dramatic scenery as well as amazing historic and interesting places. This was the first time we had done anything like this, and we would thoroughly recommend Scottish Tourer Motorhome Hire. The motorhome was just fabulous and the friendly and helpful advice offered was a great benefit in planning what was a lovely family holiday.
Thank you very much once again for making your lovely motorhome available to us and for all your help and advice.
August 2012 - David & Grace, Edinburgh:
Gordon & Corinne provide more than a first class service. Every detail is thought of beforehand, they make the full experience from initial contact to handing back the keys effortless. I cannot recommend their business highly enough. If it was a hotel it would be 6 star!
August 2012 - Rippendale Family, Saint Martin, France:
We had an excellent holiday and found the experience of dealing with you most pleasant, reliable and helpful. Logistics were smooth, the van was great, you answered our calls, you were welcoming and provided a fine tour of the van and explanations before we left. A small thing that would assist comfort and reduce unnecessary costs is for the very basics to be left in the kitchen e.g. salt, pepper, sugar, oil. Otherwise, these items are being purchased repeatedly, and in quantities we couldn't hope to use. You don't need to provide them - just ask people to leave and replenish the basics. We also left toilet paper and handy towels and are sure these will be well appreciated by the next people.
Scottish Tourer Comment: A nice thought however, in the interests of Food Safety & Hygiene we cannot leave consumables from previous customers in our motorhomes...
Also we tend to find that customers want new and immaculately clean Motorhomes, We prepare every Motorhome prior to every hire personally (Gordon & Corinne) and The standard we try to achieve is that when a customer arrives its appears the Motorhome they are getting is brand new and unused by anyone else.
August 2012 - Eddie & Helen, Burnley, Lancashire:
Just returned home from a wonderful week touring the Highlands of Scotland with a Motorhome hired from Scottish Tourer. We found them on the internet initially and were won over by the glowing reviews from previous customers. We have to say from day one booking on the internet we were impressed with the friendly and efficient way we were dealt with. Any questions we had were dealt with quickly and when collecting our Motorhome every thing was explained to us in detail. Thanks to Gordon's advice we took a route not previously planned but which turned out to be every thing and more we could have wished for. Always available at the other end of the phone to give advice we had complete confidence to set off into the wild blue yonder. The joy of this holiday was to venture forth each day and see what happens. If you stick to a route fine, if you choose to deviate fine, the wild camping gives you the freedom to stop when and where you want or if you prefer the amenities of a caravan park there are always some close by. We took pot luck and were never disappointed. If your considering this type of holiday we would highly recommend using Scottish Tourer run by Gordon & Corinne.
July 2012 - Annie & Jim, Victoria, Australia:
We had decided to have a four week motorhome vacation in Scotland, and being half a world away in Australia while we organised the trip there was a certain amount of trepidation as this was our first experience at "motor homing".
We selected Scottish Tourers based on a lot of internet research and testimonials from previous customers. The communication that followed between us and Scottish Tourers as we organised the trip gave us a sense of comfort and confidence.
You know when people are passionate about what they do that you can expect the best!
In the case of Scottish Tourers, Corrine and Gordon are totally committed to their business, their motorhomes and their customers.
In fact "customers" is a misnomer, we felt like we were old friends, from the moment Gordon collected us at Glasgow Airport and drove us to Perth in the courtesy van to the final day of our adventure.
Conveniently located in Perth, the pick up point was at their home. On arriving we were invited in for a cuppa and a full briefing on what we could expect.
Gordon then ran me through a full check out on the motorhome while Corrine showed Annie the interior and how the appliances and equipment worked.
The vehicle was immaculately presented and being first timers it was an eye opener as to just how luxurious our home for the next four weeks was.
After our induction, and full of instructions, we confidently set off to the nearby supermarket to stock up on provisions before commencing our trip.
Thanks to their itinerary guides, we were able to camp at some spectacular and unforgettable spots in the Highlands and the Outer Hebrides.
Throughout the trip we were able to contact Gordon or Corrine at any time of the night or day if we had any problems (or even if we got lost!). Gordon even gave us the occasional call to see how we were going and whether we needed anything at all.
Not only did Corrine and Gordon provide an exceptional service but even went above and beyond what we expected. On hearing that I was having trouble finding cycle hire at reasonable rates, Gordon actually purchased two quality bikes for us which are now available to all customers at very reasonable rates.
It's the small things like that which puts this company a cut above the others.
Would I use them again, Definitely!
Would I recommend them to my best friends, Absolutely!
Would I give them a 10 out of 10, Without hesitation!
July 2012 - Cécile and Cyril from Beaumant France :
As for our holiday, we are very happy. We spent a very nice week despite the weather that was not top ! We have loads of wonderful pictures on paper and in our heads ! It was our first time in Motorhome and we just loved it. It lets a lot of freedom, and allows to discover beautiful spots. Our 4-year-old girl just loved the fact that she was sleeping, eating, showering in a "home that moves on the road" ! We were also very happy of your welcoming and the state of the motorhome : it is always a worry to book everything on internet from abroad, you never know what you will find. As for us, no bad surprise, that helped us having nice holidays !
July 2012 - Lesley & Ian, Isle of Man:
We can strongly recommend Gordon and Corinne at Scottish Tourer to anyone considering hiring a motor home. The service we received from initial enquiry to returning the motor home at the end of our holiday was outstanding. It was as if we were dealing with friends so warm was the welcome and the friendly way in which all our enquiries, which were many as we were first timers, were dealt with. The attention to detail when introducing us to our home for the next 7 days was outstanding as was the provision of maps and advice on places of interest, camp sites or wild camping sites. Nothing was too much trouble and, because of the quality of the motorhome and equipment we did not need to, we were encouraged to contact Gordon and Corinne at any time should we have any problems. We had a fantastic holiday thanks to Scottish Tourers and Gordon and Corinne.
July 2012 - Maarten & Gaby, Netherlands:
We enjoyed our holiday in Scotland very much. Your tips and suggestions at the beginning of the trip were really helpful. We used a few of your wild camping spots en even found a few on our own. Clearly you are camping enthusiasts and it is very nice that you share your experiences with routes, camping sites etc. Your service and personal touch really make a difference!
July 2012 - Ailsa & Alan, Cambuslang, Glasgow:
Ailsa and I had a brilliant time on our motorhome trip. This was due to many factors but primarily the quality of the motorhome and the excellent advice offered by Gordon and Corinne on where to stay, what to see, and the day to day use of the motorhome.
We cannot recommend highly enough the great feeling of being able to stop whenever and wherever you like (within reason!). All in all we had a great holiday with many great memories to look back on.
July 2012 - Frank & Chris from Grimsby, & Marika from Germany:
I would like to thank you for making our holiday in Scotland a place to remember, the motorhome we hired from you was excellent nice and clean and everything tip top, even the warm welcome and farewell. We will be back not next year probably 2014.But count on us we will once again thank you and keep up the good work.
July 2012 - John, London:
Our first motorhome experience - and it certainly won't be our last. Gordon and Corinne were so helpful, going far beyond anything expected in terms of customer care. We really got the feeling that this is a labour of love as well as a business. Our van was brand new, immaculate and well equipped - even down to the bottle opener! Highly recommended.
July 2012 - Mark & Family, Glams, Scotland:
Thanks for the help and advice prior to using your motorhome. It was a great holiday with the kids and something I we all agreed would love to do again as it was so varied and to top it off we got good weather for the whole week away. Saw so many places around west coast of Scotland from Arisaig to Skye, then up to Ullapool and Cromarty Firth area and then back down to Oban.
One of two places stuck out and both were recommended by yourself and that was up in Arisaig, we stayed two nights as we enjoyed ourselves and the area so much and the second was the wild camping up at Applecross. I did not think the road was so bad but I must of as I did not look forward to coming back down the next day. The kids loved playing on the beach right on the doorstep of the campervan.
The campervan was good and once I got used to the width it was great and drove easily even up the climb to Applecross. It had all the stuff we need for our trip.
The main thing is the kids are still talking about their summer holiday and I'm really glad I got the cancellation and it was a superb holiday.
July 2012 - The Spencer Family, Halesowen, West Midlands:
Just a note to say thanks for the warm welcome and support for what was a very enjoyable motorhome holiday experience; we would recommend it and maybe take two weeks next time.
July 2012 - The Giuseppe & Chiara Families, Italy:
We came to Scotland for the first time and was a fantastic experience.
The decision to lease the camper was apt because we potuto apprezzare the beauty of nature and tranquility to have everything on hand always. Upon our arrival at the airport we found a very nice person who has accompanied us in Perth.
To expect Gordon and Corinne, two wonderful people, that after having finished the paperwork for the rental, even though it was late and little experience of driving on the left, which helped us to settle for the first night.
We immediately liked the the convenience of our campers very equipped and equipped with all amenities.
We traveled for ten days by visiting beautiful landscapes and beautiful cities.
Although the weather was not very favorable for our holiday in caravan was a great experience and will bring us the heart a beautiful memory of Scotland.
July 2012 - Mo from Edinburgh:
I did some web research to decide who to book a motor home with, the customer feedback on the Scottish Tourer web site speaks for itself.
From start to finish, I spent a magic two weeks in a brand new motor home, touring around the outer hebrides and west coast of Scotland.
It was my first time in a motor home, but it won't be my last, mostly due to the excellent service provided by Gordon and Corrine.
Once I was shown around the basics, it was great to know that Gordon or Corrine were available if I needed more info, which was very rare.
The list of wild camping spots was extremely useful.
I really missed not being in the motor home, when my two weeks were up
Overall, a first class service !!
June 2012 - The Kyran Family, Linlithgow:
My family thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, our first time in a motor home.
We really appreciated the "Wild Sites" information it is very handy, it allowed us to plan where to go.
Even though the sun did not shine for us we will be back next year.
June 2012 - The Crowhurst Family & Visiting Relatives, Somerton Somerset:
We (all six of us) enjoyed the six berth Motorhome. What made it so special was the fact that the vehicle was new and squeaky clean. Then of course the excellent guide details you provided, which enabled us to see the best bits of the West of Scotland. Though they had been touring most of Europe by train and plane for over a month, our Borneo relatives agreed that touring Scotland in the motorhome was the best by far.
June 2012 - The Lee Family, Sauderton Bucks:
We had a great time and as first time users of any sort of camper or caravan we were very pleasantly surprised on numerous levels by our experience. My wife would be the first to say that she doesn't do "difficult or second rate". Scottishtourer was neither of these. The standard of tourer, it's equipment, cleanliness, facilities and attention to detail was exceptional. From my point of view it was an easy and comfortable vehicle to drive which combined made the whole trip a real joy. You have a great product available and with the stunning beauty of Scotland you deserve continued success.
June 2012 - Paco & Berni ,Ibiza, Baleares, Spain:
We had driven the Sundance 2 Berth Super Luxury for the last week of June, and had a wonderful time. Gordon and Corinne were like family. They came to pick us up to Prestwick at 1100pm with the Motorhome and left us on a nice site nearby by the sea, for our first night of "wild camping"
The vehicle was super clean and in mint condition, and their advice for our route was perfect. We got the best weather at the time, beautiful country, and great places to camp and eat.
Hemos alquilado el Sundance 2 Berth Super Luxury la ultima semana de Junio y lo hemos pasado fenomenal. Gordon y Corinne son como de la familia. Vinieron a recogernos Prestwick a las 11 de la noche con el Motorhome, y nos dejaron junto al mar, para pasar nuestra primera noche de "Camping Salvaje"
La furgoneta estaba impecablemente limpia y como nueva, y sus recomendaciones para la ruta y sitios para estar y para comer fueron perfectas. Tuvimos el mejor tiempo en Escocia aquellos dias, y disfrutamos de su impresionante belleza.
June 2012 - The Welch family, Glasgow:
We just wanted to drop you a line to say we had a fantastic holiday when we hired one of your motorhomes. The standard and quality of the vehicle was first class and absolutely spotless. The information and guidance you provided, even before our holiday, was brilliant and extremely helpful and made our trip so worthwhile. This was our first experience of using a motorhome and we will definately be back and would recommend your services to anyone who wants a complete experience in motorhoming.
Thank you so much for making our holiday so worthwhile.
June 2012 - Jason & Tamsin, Plymouth, Devon:
We had an absolutely fab time in one of your vans and in Scotland. I wanted to do something different this year and boy was this different.
The west coast if Scotland is the most beautiful place I've ever been too. A Scottish person at work was horrified is picked it as my holiday destination. We had great weather, even donned shorts and t-shirt!
Your advice at all times was totally spot on. Even when we text mid week for ideas or suggestions of where to camp you came back quickly. The van was immaculately clean. The only issues we had were with a couple of broken bits which were due to the previous renter not informing you. You tried your hardest to fix this before we departed. The van had everything we needed.
I personally think you should put together some routes for people to follow as you know the best places to go. My favourite place was loch maree. It was stunning. My best photos are from there and also the campsite on the beach south of the isle of skye.
Another recommendation was the seafood shack. Amazing.
Good luck with your future renting.
June 2012 - Bryan & Marsha, Teesside:
This was the first time we had hired a motorhome and were a little unsure about quite what to expect. However, the whole experience was great, from our first enquiry right up to handing the vehicle back. During the booking process Gordon was helpful and quick to respond to any queries.
When we drove away we were a little apprehensive as it was a six berth motorhome and a somewhat bigger vehicle than we are used to driving! However, it was very easy to drive with an excellent and comfortable driving position and we soon got used to its size. The motorhome was extremely well equipped, with everything you would want for a touring holiday. We hired the vehicle for five days and did over 500 miles of very easy driving, seeing some beautiful countryside and camping in some really wild places.
We had a really good time. The motorhome itself was excellent, brand new, fully equipped and had everything we needed and more.
Thanks for all the advice, information and guidance.
June 2012 - The Ramsay Family, Newcastle:
we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Scotland in the motorhome. We have visited Scotland before but in the tourer it gave us the opportunity of 'roaming free' - and visiting areas we would not previously have reached. The whole experience was perfect - right from the time we picked up the motorhome.
Thanks for your help with thorough instructions before we left and ideas of places to stay - it was great to see you at Sunnyside - one of your suggestions. We have definately got the motorhome bug and will most likely see you again some time.
June 2012 - Phil & Golfer Friends, Ireland:
we had a fantastic time. Our pick up was on-time from edinburgh city and it was lovely to meet you both. After the paper work was completed, you gave us an excellent over-view of the motorhome, which was brand new and excellent condition. The time taken to show us around definitely put our minds at easy considering the size of it and it was very helpful to leave some of our over-sized bags in your house.
The motorhome did not disappoint! The campsite list you provided was very accurate but still gave us the opportunity to roam.
On our return, you were very accommodating regarding our changed flights and getting us to the airport a few hours early.
We would definitely come back again. thanks for everything.
June 2012 - The Duncan Family, Aberdeen:
What a fantastic break we had, it was our first 'venture' in a Motor Home and now we are absolutely hooked. Before booking I asked the question, 'Why should I pay more from Scottish Tourer than one of the competitors close by'...stupid question, it is quite apparent why, the standard of the Motorhome is simply superb, brand new with 1500 miles on the clock, immaculate inside and out, everything working as it should and all the extras on the Motorhome make it an even more enjoyable experience. My Kids, 10,7,6 just loved it and are already asking when we can do it again! Your (Gordon / Corrine) hospitality is fantastic, handover of the Motorhome was very detailed and thorough which certainly gives confidence before you set off!
We were based at Drum Mhor Campsite in Edinburgh and the motorhome was the envy of everyone even experienced Motorhomers!
I simply would not go anywhere else, and we will certainly be back.
June 2012 - Jan & Alistair, Hawick:
We were delighted with the friendly and exceptionally high standard of service provided by both of you, from booking the right Motorhome for our holiday, pre information prior to our trip, suggestions on where to stay, places to visit, our trip around the Western Isles was a great and our and first experience with a Motorhome holiday very enjoyable. The Motorhome itself was excellent, fully equipped and had everything we needed and more. Thanks for all the advice and guidance on the how to use the Van and watchout (tips) with the van it made everything so much easier and enjoyable. Nothing was any trouble you were on the end of the phone to assist with any questions or queries. Your support and service made it an excellent experience and would recommend this holiday to anyone. Thanks for everything and looking forward to our next trip.
June 2012 - Jones Family, Kinross:
This was our first experience of hiring a motorhome and didn't know quite what to expect. From the outset Corinne and Gordon were fantastic to deal with, carefully explaining everything to us and putting our minds at ease. Driving away in the brand new and immaculate motorhome was nerve racking at first, but it turned out to be an easy drive. Gordon provided some great tips to keep us safe and accident free.
We found the motorhome to be very well equipped, everything worked as it should and it was very comfortable. We hired 'our' motorhome for three nights and travelled from Perth to Loch Venachar in the Trossachs where we 'wild camped' and then travelled to the north shore of Loch Leven by Glen Coe again 'wild camping'. This is a fantastic spot , but Gordon and Corrine will be happy to recommend hundreds of others throughout Scotland. Our third night was spent at Loch Rannoch, before reluctantly returning to Perth.
We've camped in a tent and done some caravanning, the motorhome experience is completely different and we thoroughly enjoyed it. If there was something negative to say, or something that others may find unappealing, we would say it here. The service provided by Gordon and Corinne was brilliant, the motorhome was brilliant and we thoroughly enjoyed our short break. We had a great time, we'll do it again for sure and wholeheartedly recommend Gordon and Corinne to anyone considering hiring a motorhome. There was something negative, we should have hired the motorhome for longer!
Well done Gordon and Corinne, we know that you work very hard to provide this level of service and we wish to thank you for our very enjoyable, relaxing and trouble free short break.
June 2012 - Beare Family, Aberdeen:
We thought the service provided by Scottish Tourers was excellent. In addition to the paperwork being efficient and succinct; the terms and conditions of hire were clear; the motorhomes were immaculate and very well equipped; time was taken to brief us properly when we took over the vans; and the company was available to offer advice on technical and camping issues during the whole of the holiday. A very nice touch was the issue of a wild camping guide together with direct map links to scores of sites. Above all else both Corrine and Gordon were enthusiastic about camping and we felt well supported and valued as customers during the whole period of the hire.
June 2012 - White Family, Gloucestershire:
5* Luxury with 5*+ Service...
If reading this you will have already found your way to the Scottish Tourer website and will be thinking seriously about a trip in a Motorhome somewhere in Scotland.
Well, we can assure you that this is the right place to be...
Whether experienced 'campers' or thinking of plunging into such an adventure you will not find better service (or better value) anywhere.
With a fleet of brand new (and absolutely immaculate units) available from a couple who offer full support in a very professional (but very friendly) manner you are about to embark upon a trip of a lifetime.
Choose to 'wildcamp' in a glorious spot of your choosing or select from a wealth of more organised facilities available throughout Scotland and your Scottish Tourer unit will be a real home from home everyday and each very comfortable night.
With the 'extras' included and the unit specifications offered by Gordon & Corrine there is no need to want for anything whilst enjoying your self contained 'home'.
Easy to handle, easy to use - even for the novice 'camper' - complemented by a service (second to none) even the uninitiated can relax with every peace of mind afforded by the knowledge that expert help & sound advice is there simply for the asking.
We loved our Highlands tour and WILL be booking again without any doubt.
This is not just any Motorhome Rental... this is a Scottish Tourer Motorhome Rental!
Can't recommend it highly enough!
June 2012 - Ryan Family, London:
Hi Corinne and Gordon,
Can hardly believe a week has passed since we returned the van to you.
We just wanted to say that we had the most fantastic week and many thanks to you both, and Sean for the wonderful service you gave us. It makes such a difference to know that you can totally rely on the service you are offered.
Thanks again, we'll definitely pass on your details to any one who is interested.
May 2012 - Orgill Family, Reading:
Despite the weather being a wee bit disappointing for April we really enjoyed our holiday. We really can't imagine a better way of seeing the magnificent scenery of the Highlands than by using one of your Motor homes. We stayed in some spectacular campsites with views of Lochs and snow-topped mountains. We took your advice on the best route around the west coast and it really was beautiful.
This was our first holiday in a Camper van and so I was slightly apprehensive when I saw how big the vehicle was! However, I soon got used to it and enjoyed the views from the elevated driving position. The Camper van was nearly brand new, in immaculate condition and fully equipped with everything you may need.
Throughout the whole hiring process Gordon was helpful and always quick to respond to any queries. We had a small problem with the TV/Aerial amplifier but a phone call to Gordon quickly resolved it. I would not hesitate to recommend Scottish Tourer Motorhomes to anyone considering hiring a Camper van - we will definitely use them again if we decide to tour the Highlands again. (So much more to see & do!)
October 2011 - Rolandas & Family, Lithuania:
"It was one of the best of our holiday weeks ever. My family got a motorhome from Corinne and Gordon, October 13-20th. It was our first motorhoming experience and we enjoyed it a lot! Even it was not a nice weather and we have used outside camping very little...
Motorhoming advantages we have found are as follows:
- my family was all together 24 hours like at home with enough amount of space,
- we found it fully equipped, it were only clothes we had to take from home,
- we were totally independent where to stay and where to go: we have used official camping site only once for to recharge our phone batteries,
- we were able to plan ahead our expenses very precisely and we fit it,
- we were surprised how smoothly car runs on the roads.
And exceptional - Gordon and Corinne were very helpful instructing us and ready to help us 24 hours.
Finally, for everybody: Scotland is outstanding land! Go there, it worth every pens."
October 2011 - The Thum Family, Austria:
"We were very pleased with the service offered by Scottish Tourer Motorhomes. Booking and collection were made easy, and this being out first Motorhome rental we were a bit skeptic. But everything was well taken care of by Gordon & Corinne, so that we set off for 6 very pleasant days with the kids to the West Coast. The Motorhome was in excellent condition well equipped and everything was explained to us in detail up front.We enjoyed the experience so much we are already thinking of our next trip, and would definitely go back to Scottish Tourer, as well as recommend them to anyone who is on the look out for a Motorhome rental in Scotland."
October 2011 - Wendy, Brian & Kirrily, Victoria, Australia:
"We really enjoyed our holiday in Scotland in the motorhome. It was in a lovely clean condition and great working order. We appreciated the effort you went to in bringing the motorhome to Aberdeen and dropping us off after our holiday, showing us how to operate the motorhome and organising a babyseat for us. The advice you gave us on the route to take and places to stay lead us to see such beautiful areas of Scotland which were not listed in the guidebooks. You have always been so quickly responsive to our requests. We highly recommend your company."
October 2011 - Val, Fraser & Kids, Auchterarder:
"We had a marvellous trip in the motorhome, so stress free and easy right from the first phone call to Gordon and Corrine. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they make everything so simple. It was easy to book, clear instructions and directions, they are genuinely happy to help and care very much that your holiday in one of their motorhomes will be perfect!
We have hired a motorhome before from a company where no-one (The Staff) actually used the motorhome - various members of staff 'readied' the van for our trip and it was a disaster!
Not so this time!! The brilliant bonus of using Scottish Tourer is that you deal with Corrine or Gordon - not countless members of staff who you never see, its a very personal service and as they are so hands on they know everything about each individual van and have kitted it out just as it needs to be. As regular motorhome campers themselves they are experts on how to get the best out of your motorhome holiday - top tips and advice on everything from driving the van and packing it, right the way through to suggestions for great days out! It can be very nerve wracking and daunting booking something as important as a holiday through the internet, but we are delighted to say without reservation that you are in safe hands with Scottish Tourer! The website has great photographs and what you see is what you will actually get - no tricks or gimmicks and you will not be disappointed when you see your van!
Patient and helpful and only ever a phone call away - beautiful vans that are clean and new - we slept so well and I even plucked up the courage to do a little driving, which I reckon I handled pretty well!!
Cannot wait to see your new motorhome fleet for next year - we will be calling again!! "
October 2011 - Paul & Vincent, London:
"Dear Gordon & Corinne - as you know we had a great time - with much due to your helpfulness.
Here are the phrases that I would use to reflect on our expereince - please feel free to us them.
Couldn't have been more helpful
Friendly and enthusiastic in sharing their wealth of knowledge to help us plan routes.
Great attention to detail
Thoroughly committed to customer satisfaction
We will definitely book with them again
Made our first experience easy and smooth & helped us decide what to do and used their experience to help us avoid difficulties They seemed to have thought of everything for us then left us alone to enjoy ourselves "
October 2011 - Valerie, Kinghorn:
"Just wanted to say thanks for all your help - we enjoyed our first ever trip in an extremely well appointed and immaculately clean campervan. Although everything seemed a little overwhelming at the start actually all instructions were well explained and in reality was easy once you started - including the driving!!"
October 2011 - Paul, Victoria & Family, Dundee:
"We toured the north and north west of Scotland in a Scottish Tourer motorhome (Oct 2011). The vehicle was simply first class, and Scottish Tourers were a pleasure to deal with. They were very understanding (indeed, empathic) regarding our circumstances (we have four young children) and couldn't have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating. We will use their services again, and would not hesitate in recommending Scottish Tourers to others."
September 2011 - The Jørgensen Family, Denmark:
"We had a wonderful holiday in Scotland this summer. It was our first vacation in a Motorhome, but certainly not the last.
For anyone who consider to hire a Motorhome, don't hesitate to contact Corinne and Gordon. From their company you get very good value for your money. Good service all the way from our first inquiry till we delivered the Motorhome after a fine trip around Scotland..."
September 2011 - Lorrie & Family, Dunblane:
"We spent a wonderful few days in August in "our" lovely motorhome. I've rented motorhomes previously from elsewhere, but was attracted to this hire company as the homes are really very new (a few weeks old in this case) and certainly felt hardly used. Upholstery and finishings, which can quickly show wear, were all lovely and new, and the matresses felt fresh and were really comfortable. We also loved that the vehicle was equipped for wild camping, so we never went near a campsite, and loved just stopping wherever took our fancy. No worries about running out of water or gas.
The weather was pretty poor while we were away, but the home's central heating worked wonderfully, and warmed (and cheered) us up when we got soaked! My children were delighted that it rained as we got to spend more time in the motorhome, playing games and watching the flat screen TV. We even got a signal in quite remote places - really odd to be in stunning Scottish peace and tranquility watching riots in London!
Gordon and Corrine took time to explain all the details of how the home and cab worked, and i knew they were only at the end of the phone if we had any queries, though we didn't need to ring.
We loved our trip and wouldn't hesitate to rent from Scottish Tourer again."
September 2011 - Ralph & Family, Dunfermline:
"Many thanks for your excellent service and support in supplying us with a 7 berth motorhome for our family's first experience of such a holiday. The motorhome had every facility imagineable, was in tremendous condition being only weeks old and was more pleasant to drive than I had anticipated. I would have no hesitation in recommending your service to family and friends be they first timers like us or more experienced than we were. Once again many thanks. "
August 2011 - The Brown Family, Norwich:
"Our motorhome experience with your company has been one of our best holidays ever! We spent a week exploring stunning scenery in the Highlands and the Isle of Skye and will definitely return. The motorhome itself was immaculate and like a "home from home", with everything you could possible need and more. Our children enjoyed the freedom that only this type of holiday can provide, wildcamping by beautiful lakes, barbecuing in forests, exploring rockpools, climbing mountains and much much more! This was our first experience in a motorhome and we would certailnly recommend Scottish Tourer to anyone who has a motorhome dream like ourselves. Gordon and Corrrine ensure that the Motorhomes are immaculate and are always at the other end of the phone if you have a query however small. They also provide a personal service and have a special knowledge of the best routes to take. Thank you for helping create special holiday memories that we will treasure for many years to come. "
August 2011 - Eric, Nana & Family, Paris:
"Our holiday in Scotland was just fantastic. We have been so lucky to find the most reliable and professional tourer company for our holiday.
As our very first experience with a motorhome, we wanted to make sure all was very well prepared and perfectly explained, knowing that we had to carry our young daughters on this trip.
Our holiday will remain a wonderful memory for us regarding the quality and the maintenance of the camping-van we booked by internet. All the booking process was very convenient and perfectly led by Gordon from the moment we show our interest in this type of holiday. We have been received by Gordon and Corrine in person at their home, and their welcome was just unbelievable. We could not expect such cheerful welcome in Perth, prior to our presentation of the van and all the details of our journey.
For our family, couple with two kids ( 4 and 5 year old daughters), this van was very well fitted. All the major tasks to be kept in mind was very simple to handle, such as tanks replenishment and security measures while driving. Personally I was feeling a bit nervous before the explanations, but Gordon described all so simply and accurately that we could leave without a single concern about the coming week, alone in Scotland.
As well as good addresses not to miss out along the trip, like good seafood restaurant, the itinerary left by Gordon and Corrine has been very helpful for us to discover all the beauty hidden in Scotland. At no moment we felt isolated knowing the full availability of Gordon or Corinne, in any occasion and for any kind of question we could have had during the tour.
Our one week holiday, with six rainy days, was just great and we do recommend Scottish Tourer as the very first experience with motor-home to drive through this magic land.
We hope some day, to have the occasion once more to visit Scotland, for sure with Scottish Tourer. We wish all the people interested in having this kind of experiment to point Gordon and Corrine's site first, to ensure the quality and the comfort of a wonderful van to enjoy Scotland sightseeing tour."
August 2011 - Dianne & Family, Norwich:
"Thankyou for our fantastic holiday. Your friendly service made the world of difference to us, knowing that you were on the end of the phone when there were any problems was so reassuring and when we did phone you solved the problem immediately.
You seem to know Scotland like the back of your hand and the recommendations to itinery were very much apprieciated, although sadly we did not have enough time to reach them all.
We will definately be back to finish the trip!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Scottish Tourer to anybody, this is more than hiring a spotless motorhome but a genuinely personal and friendly service.
Thankyou again, i think you will meet my in-laws by the end of the year!"
August 2011 - Danny - East London:
"I spent hours trailing through the internet, not only looking for a good deal but also
To find a holiday firm that actually do care about your holiday experience and not just taking your money and leaving you to get on with it. I am sure there may be other good firms out there, but for me no one else came remotely close. Gordon and Corrine are 100% dedicated to ensuring that you will have a happy and carefree holiday. The motorhome itself was a late model modern, very easy to drive and the functions easy to operate both in and outside. The motorhome was also immaculately clean. This was my first holiday in a motorhome and it could not have gone any smoother for me.
Scottishtourer include every item you could need at no extra cost! Check the list of items included on the scottishtourer website against any other company! Gordon and Corrine are a nice friendly couple always at the end of the phone for any questions or help you may need while you out and about anything from directions to places to see and things to do, I loved the wild camping element of my holiday, not once having to stay on a paying campsite squashed in with lots of other campers, this was thanks to their wide knowledge of wild camping spots scattered around the highlands. I also found a couple of great camp spots myself around Wester Ross, The Isle of Skye and Glen Nevis are a must see ! So if your thinking of booking with scottishtourer look no further! And finally many thanks Gordon and Corrine for a fantastic carefree holiday."
August 2011 - Adam & Family - Hatfield, Herts:
"What said it all at the end of the holiday was my partner Jane wishing we could have had the Motorhome for another week. We all enjoyed the freedom to stop where we wanted when we wanted and found some idyllic places to park in often complete isolation, with only the sound of water and birds to disturb us. The Motorhome was in spotless condition when we got it, performed perfectly on steep hills and winding single track roads and was surprisingly easy to get on and off the three ferries we used. We are already planning to do it again in a couple of years time. Thank you for making our holiday one of the best this family has ever had."
August 2011 - Clive & Catherine - Nottingham:
"We found Scottish Tourers on the internet having looked at numerous other motorhome hire companies. We selected it on the basis of its location, testimonials and it being a smaller, more personal company. What a good call. The van was perfect, Gordon and Corinne were really friendly and provided lots of useful advice/tips to make our holiday a great success (despite some occasional wet weather). It was our first proper visit to Scotland and this was a great way of exploring it. Only downside was that one week was not enough! I would not hesitate in using them again or recommending them to friends or family."
August 2011 - Hans & Tanja - Switzerland:
"First of all, thanks for the great time we had with you both and the two weeks we spend in your lovely motorhome. We enjoined the luxury of it and loved all the wild camp places where we spend the night. Also thanks a lot for your assistance when we had a flat tire and with the faulty charger. And not to mention the help when I 'touched' the mirror of a Land Rover Discovery at the third day. It helps a lot when the owner of the motorhome (you) stays friendly and joyful!
But even with the small problems we enjoyed every minute! We hope to come back next year and continue our search for beautiful wild camp places, castles and (most important) whiskys!
So we look forward to meet you again next year. Thanks again for one of our best holidays ever!"
August 2011 - Rob & Margaret - Hawick:
"This was our first trip in a motor-home, so were slightly anxious before we started the trip round Scotland. We shouldn't have been !
Gordon explained all of the exterior side of the motor home , while Corinne clarified any queries we had on the internal points . They could not have done more to help, nothing seemed to be a bother to them.
The motor home came fully equipped with everything required for a most enjoyable journey. As well as cooking facilities , there was a shower, a toilet, camp chairs and a table , a television, a DVD player , even a barbeque!
My wife was so taken with the whole week that we are determined to make this a regular part of our holidaying experience."
August 2011 - Kenny & Roz - Isle of Lewis:
"Gordon and Corrine are passionate about their business, they are lifelong camper van users themselves and know exactly what is required to provide an exceptional service. Their campers are all brand new, spotlessly clean and fully kitted with everything you need, bring your own food and wine of course!"
August 2011 - Chris & Sheron - London:
"Thanks for hospitality you made us feel so welcome. We really had a great week in Scotland, already given your no to a friend!! Your set up and equipment is second to none."
August 2011 - Neil & Michelle - Manchester:
"Michelle and I had a fantastic week touring Scotland. Both Gordon & Corinne were friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The motorhome they supplied was new, very comfortable, and perfect for extended touring without the need to stop each day at a site to re-charge batteries etc. Great experience and highly recommended."
July 2011 - William & Pat - Yorkshire:
"Your fantastically new motorhome was a great introduction to motorhoming and Scotlands' coast and highlands. All made the better by the fact the vehicles are up to date and immaculate. Then topped off by the friendly and attentive service from yourselves. And we've told everyone we know."
July 2011 - Mark, Gail, Lucy & Zoe - Glasgow:
"We have just returned from 10 days touring Scotland in one of Gordon and Corinne's wonderful Motorhomes, and what can we say that our 4 year old daughter has not already said (every day since we came home!)... "that was the best holiday ever". From the initial enquiry stage through to booking and then pick-up, Gordon was extremely helpful and prompt with his replies to our queries. On pick-up, Corinne was very thorough with the general information regarding the workings of the Motorhome. The Motorhome was immaculate and everything was in perfect working order. We spent a very comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable 10 days onboard with our 2 young children. We would not hesitate to recommend 'Scottish Tourer' and hopefully we will be using them again ourselves in the future."
July 2011 - Esther & Family - Netherlands:
"We celebrated a 40 birthday with a surprise weekend and I had a lot of last minute organisation things to do. But we really enjoyed our holiday in your motorhome. The motorhome was brand new, well equiped and spacious enough for the 5 of us. The children didn't mind driving long distances because they were able to watch tv, read a book or make a drawing at the table. Besides the brand new motorhome we really appreciated your service. You were always available to answer our questions we had before and during our holiday. We chose Scottish Tourer because you gave value for money. A one price all inclusive packet, no extras so we knew what to expect. I'm sure when we want to hire a motorhome again we will definitely go back to Scottish Tourer. "
June 2011 - John, Sab & the family - Singapore:
"Wanting to do something a little different for my three young children and have my elderly parents with us, I found Gordon and Connie and their 7 birth 707 Motorhome. Coming from Singapore, my family had never seen anything like this. When collected from the Airport by Gordon we were 'blown-away' with the Motorhome, looking Brand Spanking New, gleaming in the car park. Gordon took us back to his place for induction showing us the fully equiped Motorhome with crockery, bedding, picnic table and chairs, etc, even down to washing-up cloths and tea towels. We loaded up and off we went into the Highlands of Scotland. Being fully equipped for wild camping, the Motorhome easily managed to keep all seven of us snug when is chilly, full when we were hungry and clean when we were grubby. Although the Motor home was large it was a joy to drive coped with anything the Scottish roads could throw at us.
Thank you for making our holiday special and I hope all the different people who approached us to admire your Motorhome give you lots of future business."
June 2011 -Sandy, Neil & Family - Hampshire:
"We had an absolutely fantastic holiday in the motorhome. It was so clean and well equipped, and more spacious than we anticipated. The children all had the time of their lives and I'm sure we'll be back for another hire soon."
June 2011 -James & Karen - Hawick:
"After looking at the many websites offering motorhomes for hire, we picked scottishtourer and this turned out to be a great choice. Within 15 minutes of emailing our request, Gordon was on the phone giving us all the information we required. The price that was quoted included everything and there were no hidden extras like on some other websites. And when they said everything, they meant everything - maps, sat nav, every kind of phone charger connector, books of campsites, lists of wild camping spots, unlimited mileage (good for us as we did over 1000 miles in a week's mini tour of Scotland!). The motorhome that we hired was brand new and absolutely spotless. Gordon and Corinne were extremely helpful and friendly throughout the hire period. Always on the end of the phone if there was a problem, or just needed somewhere they could recommend, they just laughed when I told them I had forgotten to screw the water cap back on after filling up with freshwater, and was probably lying on a roadside somewhere on Harris. (tip - stick a sponge in the opening till you get back to Perth, worked a treat!) We would definitely choose scottishtourer again and have recommended them to all our friends."
June 2011 - John, Jill & Family, Lytham - St Annes:
"This was our first motorhome holiday, and the whole family loved it. The boys especially appreciated the tv & dvd player to watch during the longer drives. I've never driven a motorhome before, but the 707 was great to drive. We only stopped at a couple of 'official' campsites, and spent the rest of the time wild-camping. Waking up next to a loch on a sunny morning is hard to beat! Gordon and Corinne really know their stuff and put us 'first timers' at ease with lots of helpful advice. Highly recommended."
June 2011 - Ruth & Stephen - Edinburgh:
"Being motorhome novices, we were slightly nervous about driving and living in a motorhome for a week. Gordon and Corinne put us at our ease very quickly with their professionalism and clear knowledge, giving a great level of support from our first enquiry right through to the end of our holiday. Gordon and Corinne were absolutely great at showing us the ropes, helping us understand the features of the motorhome, and how to get the best from our holiday. The motorhome we hired was faultless, absolutely spotlessly clean and we had the most incredible holiday exploring the highlands. Gordon and Corinne were always on the end of the phone if we needed any help in finding somewhere to stay, or had any questions about the van. All information provided was comprehensive and accurate, all dealings with Gordon and Corinne have been straight-forward and we will most definitely be booking a motorhome through Scottish Tourers again. We would without hesitation recommend Scottish Tourer"
June 2011 - Louisa - York:
"Having recently enjoyed a holiday on the Western Scottish Highlands, we felt compelled to thank you both for all your help. We were first time 'Motorhomers' and really appreciated the very friendly and comprehensive overview of the motorhome, which ensured we knew exactly what to do! The motorhome was fantastic, spotless and clearly very well cared for, it catered for all our needs. On the occasions were we needed to call Scottish Tourers, the help we received was brilliant! We will definitely book again for another holiday!"
June 2011 - Karen & Colin - Preston:
" We would all like to say a huge thank you to you both for helping us to have such a great holiday last week.
The Motor Home was excellent. Beautifully clean and containing everything we needed for our trip.
Information about the hire, instructions for collection and directions for pick up were all clear and comprehensive, and assisted in making our holiday totally hassle free.
Even better, your information and help with things like the wild camping and golf locations etc. was fabulous. You could not have been more supportive and I am certain we will see you at some time in the future for another holiday. We will be very happy to recommend you to anyone we know looking for a similar holiday."
May 2011 - Sarah & Iain - Duns:
" Thanks again for being so superb - fabby, new motorhome and awesome backup - no matter what time of day or night.
You have been brilliant, and we have already recommended you to many friends and colleagues.
We will certainly use you when we go motorhoming again.
Just wish it was you running motorhome hire in Canada and Australia too - cos then we'd know everything would be fine. "
May 2011 - Katy & Phil - London:
" From the moment I contacted Scottishtourer.co.uk both Gordon and Corrine were amazingly friendly and helpful, giving us a very good quote for our eight night hire. My partner Phil and I chose their company because of their clear passion for touring, flexibility and willingness to answer all my daft questions any time of the day or night! As complete Motorhome novices we were slightly clueless when we picked up our Cariocca 6-berther but Corrine and Gordon showed remarkable patience with us and expressed confidence that we would soon get to grips with it. They even suggested a route to make the most of our eight nights on the West Coast of Scotland. The motorhome was brand new (just a month old) and an amazing piece of equipment and, as predicted, within a couple of days it felt like home. We visited some of the wildest and most spectacular places either of us has ever seen - in comfort and luxury. Even our 21-month old daughter loved looking out the window at the dramatic landscapes and she slept beautifully in her bunk while we enjoyed the space and cosiness of the king-sized cabin up top. Gordon and Corrine were always available on the end of the phone in case we had any questions and their enthusiasm was infectious. In short we had a great holiday and this was due in no small part to Gordon and Corinne. "
April 2011 - Clause & Family - Switzerland:
" We are very satisfied, very nice reception and good service on hand over of the motor home, very good documentation, maps and GPS, They were very responsive in case of problems, 2 hours to get a tyre replacement on a Sunday in the country side is very good. The motor home itself was in a very good condition and very well prepared beds, towels ..., very good cooking place and surprisingly good oven."
April 2011 - Colin, Aberdeen - Scotland:
" We were delighted with the friendly and exceptional service provided by Corinne and yourself . Not only did we receive an excellent and well prepared new Motorhome, we were also given brilliant advice and loads of tips, This was our first time using a motorhome and we were given full instruction on its use and also phone numbers to call at any time if any problems should we have any queries or problems. This was all on the back of a great price! Many thanks once again."
April 2011 - Andy & Gillian - London:
" We hired a brand new Carioca 7 berth
motorhome with Scottish Tourer over Easter for a week to explore the Highlands. From the moment we made contact with Gordon and Corinne they couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming in helping us prepare for our holiday. They were always available to answer calls and emails as this was our first motorhome holiday.
The motorhome itself was fabulous with all the comforts of home and loads of extras. Before heading off on our own Gordon and Corinne patiently showed us how everything worked and reassured us enormously. Their advice and experience covered absolutely everything (even including BBQ tips)and ensured we set off with the confidence to enjoy our new home for the week. We had a fantastic week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. All in all a great motorhome and a great price and with exceptional quality of service. We have only been home a week and are already planning our next holiday with Scottish Tourer!"
April 2011 - Graeme and Vikki - Edinburgh:
" This trip (10 nights around Scotland) was our first experience of motor homing but it certainly won't be our last. The motor home selected for our trip was a 5 berth brand new model which was fully equipped and immaculate inside and out. Gordon and Corinne were both very friendly and equally professional. Before we departed, they gave us great advise including invaluable tourist leaflets and maps and when we returned we enjoyed sharing stories of our travels over a cup of tea. We will certainly look forward to hiring from Gordon and Corinne again for our next adventure. "
April 2011 - Julian, Dorset - Kent:
" Thank you for all your help and advise during our first Motorhome holiday. Not having done this sort of thing before having good, sensible advise and a terrific van made it all undaunting. The motorhome itself was immaculate, very well kitted out and great to drive, the only dissapointed was that we get enough time to try out and use everything it had!! Will definately return for another trip and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Scottish Tourer as your one stop shop for a motorhome holiday."
Vicki and Ernie, Ash - Cheshire:
"We are a retired couple thought we were going senile as we booked a Motorhome on the spur of the moment to tour west coast and Isle of Skye, this was our first time in a Motorhome, glad Corinne was very patient with us showing how everything worked , The vehicle was fairly new and in mint condition , We followed the route and stop over places they suggested... Totally fantastic... one of the free overnight parking places they has marked on the map was at the distillery in Skye overlooking a sea loch we enjoyed a dram of their produce in the evening watching the sun go down. We were so impressed 4 weeks later we bought our own Motorhome, and have since travelled to France, Spain , Portugal, we really appreciate the invaluable help from both of them in purchasing our own Motorhome that suited our needs as its opened up a whole new way of life to us. Many Many Thanks"
Debbie and Allan - Northampton:
"We holiday in Scotland every few years, However we were disappointed the company we normally use were fully booked, we booked with Gordon & Corinne and were we glad we did , the 5 berth we had booked was not available and we were given a free upgrade to a six berth which was only a few weeks old (think we were first to use it), it come with every conceivable extra fitted they even threw in barbeque coals and fluid, we knew the route we wanted to travel but their help and knowledge of free spots with fantastic views made our holiday so much more enjoyable, Have booked with them again , roll on July."
The Veronique Family - France:
"We have done a very good trip in motorhome with our children. It was the first time with a vehicle like this. We have appreciated the quality of the motorhome. Very well equipped, clean, for a good price. Gordon and Corinne are very pleasant and nice, they gave us good advices and they was very helpful. I Trust them and I recommend them. "
Rod & Christine form Ottawa - Canada:
"We would highly recommend renting from Gordon & Corinne after the personal and professional experience we enjoyed during our one-week holiday in Scotland. The caravan was in perfect condition, well equipped and performed flawlessly throughout our holiday. Set-up and operation was intuitive and the personalized pick-up and drop-off service in Perth made the whole experience so much easier."
Dave & Cheyenne - Cardiff:
"We are so glad we booked our motorhome with you. The whole booking and return of the vehicle was seamless and we appreciate how you offered help with useful advise and destination tips. The motorhome itself was spotlessly clean and very comfy. It was fantastic how you had thought of providing just about everything we needed to make it an easy trip. We'll definitely be telling friends! Thank you so much!"
Sally & Adam - Lincoln:
"Just to say what a great holiday we had, The Motorhome was excellent and your help with our holiday was much appreciated, We will defiantly recommend you to our friends and family”.
Richard, Jason, Simon & Steve - Weston-Super-Mare:
"The camper was fantastic, perfect for our trip, the only comment, could do with some 12volt insect repellers, and a generator that's just a tiny bit smaller top fit in when under way."
Scottish Tourer Comment: These were four really nice guys up in Scotland for a mountain bike holiday who returned the Motorhome in immaculate and clean condition, An insect repeller has no effect on the Scottish midge and these guys were in the Ben Nevis area where the midge is most common, However we are now going to supply citronella sticks for customers heading to that area during the midge season. The best way is to keep the fly screens all closed so they cant get in the Motorhome.
The generator would normally fit in the garage compartment under the bunk beds but with all the gear needed for these mountain bikers this was not possible also the generator needs to be big enough to drive the air con system when wild camping.
Jai, David and family - Moray:
"This was the first time we had tried a motorhome holiday. We had a fantastic time. Travelling with two youngsters we were able to stop and go as we pleased, travelling at our pace. The kids loved the adventure and still talk about "our motorhome". One thing we really enjoyed using was the awning. (Most companies don't fit awnings on rental vehicles, they are willing to trust us with a motorhome but not a wind out awning?) Combine this with the table,chairs and BBQ, and we found that if we did visit a campsite we quickly made friends!"
