Renting an RV in Scotland

by Scottish Tourer March 09, 2022

Scotland is a wonderful place to be in an RV spending your days however you wish. From adventure vacations, historic trips, sandy beaches, wildlife spotting, island hopping, fine dining or relaxing by a river. Whatever vacation ticks the boxes an RV in Scotland will have them sorted. At Scottish Tourer we provide a professional, friendly and comprehensive service. With over 30 years of RV experience we are always keen to help people plan that perfect vacation. When you are travelling a distance prior to arriving you want to be sure you have got it right. 

When you arrive at our depot a short drive away are local amenities where you can pick up some supplies for your first few days away in your RV. We provide you with a video prior to arrival and will go round the outside to ensure you are aware of everything that is included and how it works. We also provide a paper copy of how to use all appliances inside as well as a copy of the video to refer back to. We are however always available on the phone should you require any help or assistance whilst on your vacation.
