September 2014 - Steve & Kathleen, Shetland, Scotland:
In September 2014 we hired the Swift Escape 664 from Scottish Tourers and we had a really marvellous time. From the moment we emailed our booking to arriving to pick up our motorhome it was all very well organised and relaxed. Gordon and Corrine are lovely people and their guide and explanation of how everything worked in the motorhome was very comprehensive and easy to understand. They advice they gave us not just for our trip but about buying our own motorhome was very welcome and enabled us to make the very most of our week, enjoying breathtaking views, beautiful camp sites and wild camping. We would thoroughly recommend Scottish Tourers and would have no hesitation to hire with them again, if we don't have our own motorhome soon!
September 2014 - Iain & Anne, Bishopbriggs, Scotland:
Thanks again for the usual great service (3 hires in 3 years speaks for itself).
Our trip to Harris & Lewis got off to a bad start when the ferry sailed from Ullapool to Stornoway 3 hours early to avoid the high winds! so we lost a day, but sitting in the car park at Ullapool rocking in the motorhome in 70 mph winds was preferable to being out in the Minch! We still had a great time and had good walks on the great beaches.The jouney home via sunny Skye was beautiful.
See attached photos to see that our weather wasn`t all bad! If we are going to return year after year I think we will need to think about buying one of your motorhomes!
September 2014 - Keith Young and 3 Golfer friends from Worcestershire, England:
Having just returned from our "Ryder Cup Road Trip" we would all like to thank Gordon and Corrine at Scottishtourer for looking after us from start to Finnish. After several very helpful conversations with Gordon wee decided to book one of their luxury 6 berth motorhomes to use as our base in Perth while watching The Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. After arriving in glorious Scottish sunshine Gordon drove the motorhome to our camp site and set us up for the week. Corrine explained how everything worked and recommended some great restaurants in Perth. We had 3 fantastic days at Gleneagles watching the european team show the americans how to play team golf and the motorhome was every thing we could have asked for. It was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed. At the end of our holiday Gordon and Corrine came to our camp site to pick up the motorhome. We cannot thank them enough for the way they looked after us, and we have said that we would like to return in the future to use the motorhome as it should be used, touring Scotland's beautiful scenery.
Four very happy golfers!
August 2014 - Pat & Jim, Queensland, Australia:
We are now settled back at home in Australia after our marathon trip to Europe. Yes the cruise was amazing, a lovely way to end our visit. But I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you did to ensure we had a fantastic holiday in your 2 berth 454 motorhome. It was certainly a highlight of our whole trip. We are hooked on motorhome holidays now, so much so our next trip is going to be travelling by motorhome from Adelaide, across the Nullabour Desert to Perth, in Western Australia. Of course our only problem is, how do we match the luxury and expertise of your company. You made everything effortless, particularly for us novices.
What an amazing holiday, touring the highlands of Scotland in an immaculate, brand new 2 berth motorhome, Bessacar 454, through your company, Scottish Tourer! We were novice motorhome travellers and the time you took to explain all the ins and outs really helped make our travelling easier. The 2m motorhome was easy to drive, even down the narrow roads to Plockton! The interior was perfect for the two of us- amazing shower- and we made good use of the cooking facilities as well as the outdoor table and chairs. As many others have said the business side of it was very professional yet personal. We stayed in a mixture of wild sites ( at Glenmore) and camping sites (at Glen Nevis) all of them were special. Our only problem was we should have booked a longer trip, 6 days doesn't do it justice!
Thank you again, Gordon and Corinne, for helping create very special memories.
July 2014 - Andrea, Christophe & Family, Linsdorf, France:
As you already know, we highly appreciated your professional, personal and kind support and the perfect organisation from the beginning to the end of our holiday. As it was our first holiday in Scotland with a motorhome, we had arrived slightly nervous about driving on the left, single-track roads or wild camping, but you managed to reassure us very fast with your helpful advice and profound knowledge. You provided everything we needed to start out on our journey, even the beds were already made! One of the most best things was most beautiful wild camping spots we could ever imagine. Together with the numerous hints you gave us on amazing places we might want to visit, this made our trip truly memorable. We will never forget the breathtaking moment when the deer visited us in front of the motorhome on Applecross beach! The children also enjoyed being so close to nature and playing at the most beautiful beaches just in front of the motorhome - they were really sad when we had to get home...
Throughout our holiday, we felt we could rely on you and knew you were available for advice any time - so we really had three absolutely carefree weeks! Thanks a lot for making this possible. We recommend everyone to choose Scottish Tourer and hope we can make it back to you soon!
July 2014 - Thorben, Robert, Ute and Oliver, Switzerland:
We are a family with 2 kids from Switzerland and spent 16 days in the Highlands and the Outer Hebrides in July 2014. We did a perfect match and choose Scottish Tourer for the motorhome rental. The motorhome was brand new, completely equipped ,everything in perfect condition and spotless clean.
We never had any problem neither with the car nor with the equipment. But the most important thing for us was that we always felt the fine service from Gordon and Corinne, from the first email contact until the transfer back to Edinburgh. So, thumbs up for Corinne and Gordon, and their 5 star service.
July 2014 - Luc & Frederic, France:
We spent a marvellous week in Scotland with Gordon and Corinne's motorhomes. From the first mail contacts until our arrival in Scotland, everything was clear and helpful. The transfer from Edinburgh to Perth, just in time, have allowed us to make Gordon's acquaintance and get useful information about Scotland. Every information for our security as right side drivers was given. We had a splendid tour, across the cairngorm mountains and through the Highlands to the west coast and Skye. Thanks for the maps including wild camping places, provided long ago by Gordon, we had map out our route and the places were easy to find with the GPS. The Motorhomes were perfect, even to drive in mountains and on the narrow roads. We warmly recommend Scottishtourer and back in Scotland we won't look for another motorhome provider!
July 2014 - Jamie & Caroline, Darlington, England:
This is just a quick note to say thank you for helping us to have a fantastic holiday around the beautiful west coast of Scotland. The motorhome was superb, and the handover comprehensive and full of the necessary things we needed to know (having never hired a motorhome before) as well as hints and tips from your years of experience, but it was not fussy or over the top, I would say essential. The sat nav with the 'wild camping' was brilliant and this was how we camped throughout most of our holiday. I think throughout our week, the biggest thing we learned was to travel in the morning, then set up and enjoy the afternoon and evening at wherever you end up! And thats the key... wherever you end up. Just getting away and doing what you want. Thats a holiday! We are now looking into hiring again, and traveling around the whole coastline of Scotland, as well as a couple of the Isles. But I need more time off work first!!
July 2014 - Carole & Mick, Norfolk England:
On collection, the motorhome was as new, it is a fantastic vehicle with everything that you could possibly need and quite a lot that was just nice to have. We were very surprised that considering the size of the motorhome, it was very compact to move around, had lots of power and was cheaper than a lot of cars on fuel ( we were getting over 34 MPG ). We had loads of help from both of you regarding lots of silly questions about things that we did not understand, but nothing was too much trouble for you. The next time we have a motorhome holiday we will come straight back to Scottish Tourer, when you find a company as good as yours we see no need to look any further and we have recommended you to several people already. Reputable companies can be very difficult to find these days, but we feel that we struck gold with you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
July 2014 - Derek & Jane, Surrey England:
Just wanted to say a big thank you for making our holiday in Scotland so enjoyable. The motorhome was perfect, well equipped and immaculate, I really didn't want bring it back !
We were very impressed by the friendly and professional service that you gave us.The thorough explanation of the features of the motorhome and your route recommendations were invaluable.
We had a fantastic week, surrounded by beautiful scenery, even the weather was kind.
It was our first trip to Scotland, it won't be our last and when we return I will be booking our trip with you. Thank you once again.
June 2014 - Phil & Maggie, Dorset, England:
Scottish Tourer are without doubt the creme de la creme of the Scottish motor home rental market, and the owners Gordon & Corinne are really helpful & friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone planning a touring holiday in Scotland. The service we received was fantastic.
June 2014 - Paul & Foo, London, England:
We spent two weeks in a motor home hired from Scottish Tourer and would highly recommend them. The homes are brand new, well-equipped and the engine has enough power to keep moving on the high road and the low road. What really makes the difference is the personal service from Gordon and Corinne, who made us feel very welcome and provided invaluable advice to help us enjoy our trip and avoid mistakes that could spoil the holiday. We're not fans of campsites and Gordon's thirty years experience of identifying wild camping spots was much appreciated and enabled us to stay in some stunning locations. Paul Robins and Fu Ho Lee.
June 2014 - Karen & Richard, Bathingbourne, Isle of Wight:
Excellent!!! We both love holidaying in Scotland and have now found the perfect accommodation. Gordon & Corrine have perfected the whole booking, pickup and return process - from an informative website, quick email response to all enquiries, easy booking forms and a full tour with instruction covering the vehicle and all it's equipment at pickup.
Best accommodation - spotlessly clean and fully equipped for a perfect holiday, we hope to make a repeat booking for 2015.
May 2014 - Glynn & Kate (travelled as a group with another couple), Leeds, England:
We hired two motorhomes for us and another couple to travel round some of the west coast of Scotland. Right from the initial enquiry we always received a prompt and helpful response from Gordon; he was always willing to offer advice on routes and places to see. Between his ideas and some of our own, we planned a route that took us to some of the most beautiful and remote places we had all ever seen.
Having booked nearly a year in advance, after much planning we finally arrived in Perth to a warm welcome. The motorhomes were spotless and equipped with everything we needed. Gordon and Corinne made sure we all had full instructions on how to operate all the knobs and whistles on the vans and showed us all the little tricks needed to work everything properly. In case we forgot anything there were comprehensive instructions and reminders in both vans, very useful for the first few days until we got into the routine.
Once we set off we realised how good the vans were, they did not struggle at all with any of the steep hills, narrow roads and very winding passes that we took them on. The beds were lovely and comfortable, the heating was excellent and we always had hot water for a shower. The chocks were especially useful for the wild camping spots we stayed in, very important to keep your wine or whisky glass level! The real beauty of the vans was being able to stop in some gloriously remote places that you would never reach with a car, waking up to our own private beach in Cove one morning (complete with Highland cows) and finding amazing views round every corner.
Overall, an excellent holiday with the knowledge that if anything went wrong, help was only a phone call away. We would certainly come back to Gordon and Corinne if we return to Scotland again and would highly recommend Scottish Tourer to anyone looking to hire a motorhome and see some of the best that Scotland has to offer.
May 2014 - Kate & Richard Hoskin, North Yorkshire, England:
We had an absolutely fantastic time in the motorhome we hired from you. Collection and return was all very straightforward. The motorhome itself was lovely; comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. It was great to have the satnav and your map guide to good places to wild camp. We could happily have spent the rest of the summer touring around! A fantastic holiday and great service from yourselves. Thank you.
May 2014 - Jerome & Veronique from Mercurol, France:
We believe that the motorhome is the best way to travel in Scotland. You can adapt your itinerary according to the weather. You can easily park and wild camp. We were in the Highlands and it was so quiet. No traffic jam! And if you have never travelled with a motorhome, Scottish Tourer is the ideal renting company. Gordon and Corinne explain everything in details and take time to give you the keys to spend fantastic holidays. Moreover, our motorhome was very comfortable (6 berth) and it was funny for the children!
Nous pensons que le camping-car est la meilleure façon de voyager en Ecosse. Vous pouvez adapter votre itinéraire en fonction de la météo. On peut s'arrêter et faire du camping sauvage facilement. Nous étions dans les Highlands et c'est si calme. Pas de bouchons! Et si vous n'avez jamais voyagé en camping-car, Scottish Tourer est la société de location idéale. Gordon et Corinne vous explique tout en détail et vous donnent toutes les clés pour passer des vacances formidables. De plus, notre camping-car était très confortable (6 places) et c'était rigolo pour les enfants!
May 2014 - Danny & Kelly, Glasgow, Scotland:
Where to begin? From the moment we first picked up the phone to enquire about the motorhome, til the moment we returned it afterwards, everything went perfectly. We are both very familiar with the highlands and islands of our beautiful country, but the motorhome gave us the opportunity to see and do things that just wouldn't have been possible on a rough camping trip. Although Gordon and Corinne were aware that this was our first trip in a motorhome, at no point were we made to feel patronized. The help and information offered at the time of collection was invaluable, and it's very reassuring to know that both Gordon and Corinne are just a phonecall away should you need anything. Our Swift 664 4 berth was brand spanking new, and extremely well-appointed. It drove fantastically and was excellent on fuel consumption. We had contacted several other hire companies nearby beforehand, but none even came close to the friendly attitude and professional knowledge of Scottish Tourers. We are already talking about next year's trip, and there's only one company we would even consider using. Thank you for one of the greatest trips we've had. Great job guys.
April 2014 - Derek & Family, Burntisland, Scotland:
We have hired The 696 from Gordon & Corrine twice - Sept 2012 more recently in April'14. Great vans, brilliant friendly & professional service. I had a small incident reversing up a sand dune on north Uist which broke the small plastic bracket on the waste pipe from the kitchen sink. I called gordon straight away and he re-assured us that this was just one of those things. It was never an issue to call either Gordon or Corrine for some advise on how to operate any of the equipment when either wild camping or on a camp site. We went to Barra / South Uist /Benbeculla / North Uist / Skye & Applecross this time. By far the best camp site was glen brittle on Skye with fresh rolls available in the morning and the pub in Applecross had exceptional food. The vans give you the freedom to visit as many places as you can fit it. I prefer hooking up on the campsites as you get the electrics for the iPod docking stations/ hair dryers etc etc. Also the shower blocks on the majority of the campsites are excellent. The 696 is spacious and comfortable for 2 adults & 2 kids(11 & 13). We would recommend the bedding and bike hire- take your own toaster. We will be looking to hire again next year.
April 2014 - The Ingles Family, Dunbar, Scotland:
This was our first time renting a motor home and we can highly recommend Scottish Tourer. We like nice holidays and were not sure at first about a Motorhome holiday but the vans are so new and well equipped it was a great choice, We are a family of 5 and rented a 6 berth. Lots of room even with 5 bikes and all the skiing gear! What a great way to show your kids Scotland. Up and over the top at Applecross is well worth the effort and the Motorhome was straightforward and easy to drive. The information from Gordon and Corinne when picking the Motorhome up was invaluable and they offer to be at the end of their mobiles if any problems which is reassuring. We wildcamped most of the time which is ideal and the way to do it. The Van was clean tidy and impressive! What a great family business and super setup! Don't hesitate!
April 2014 - The Morrison Family, Inverness, Scotland:
As Motorhome novices we were very excited about our holidays in Scottish Tourer's finest Motorhome. The service from Gordon and Corinne was amazing and every little detail had been thought of to make for a fantastic break for us and our three kids. Albeit we holidayed in April, we made loads of use of the table and chairs for picnics as the weather was so fantastic and the kids loved being able to take their bikes with them. We were very, very fortunate to have won our break in the Motorhome through the Speyside rally and Gordon and Corinne's tremendous generosity. We can't thank them enough for a fantastic holiday!
April 2014 - Teri & James from Stuttgart, Germany:
We highly recommend Scottish Tourer for rental. My husband and I just spent 8 days touring the highlands. Fantastic experience working with Scottish Tourer. Gordon and his wife, Corinne, go out of their way to make sure you have what you need when you hit the road. The motorhome was new and well stocked with everything we needed. They really took the time to go over everything inside and out before we took off and helped us plan an itinerary. They go so far as to provide you with a navi/gps preloaded with great destinations. What a wonderful and unforgettable experience we will always treasure!!
April 2014 - Jean & Dave from Hawick, Scotland:
We've had a fantastic week touring Scotland in the Escape 664, just brilliant. We really appreciate the full explanations about the motorhome and all the little tips about wild camping and recommended campsites given to us before and during our holiday. It was reassuring to know that help was only a phone call away if needed! The motorhome itself was perfect and has made us realise this is the motorhome for us. Thank you so much.
April 2014 - Niamh & Darren from Cork, Ireland:
We had a luxury 2 berth motorhome for a week in April and absolutely loved it. The vehicle was immaculate, really comfortable, spacious and very well equipped with everything you could want. We wild camped every night except one. It was also pretty easy to drive since neither of us had experience driving something that size. Gordon and Corinne were extremely friendly, helpful and professional. They gave us some excellent advice on where to go and very useful maps and tourist information and were a pleasure to deal with. Scotland was also a really beautiful and well equipped location for a motorhome holiday. We would love to go back and would definitely use Scottish Tourer again.
