May 2019 - Pierre Bergagnini and family.

"For our first motorhome trip in Scotland with a 5 years old girl, we looked for several rental companies on Internet. If Scottish Tourer seems at first more expensive, note that their motorhomes are fully equipped: with other companies, you will have to add a GPS nav (you won't always have enough coverage to use your smartphone for that), outdoor chairs and table, a second driver, etc. So at the end there will be no differences. And their motorhome are brand new too ! They are well thought and designed, and we never felt cramped, even at three on rainy days.

We really had a very great time in Scotland, and the smoothness of the hiring played a big part in it, from the first contacts by email (direct access to this very accessible family team) to the drop-off at the airport when we left. The team is very nice, their advice are really valuable, and the fact that they can be reach anytime during the trip is very reassuring. They supply freely a GPS that is fully loaded with wild camp spots, public toilets, water taps and so on, so you won't have to worry about when and where to stop. When needed, just select the nearest spot and go ! This is a must have, it really helped to enjoy our trip in total trust.

We will recommand them without hesitation to anyone who wish to try the adventure, and we already know with whom we'll go the day we want to redo it.

A really big "thank you" to Corinne, Gordon and Dawn !"

“We’ve just returned from such a great holiday in our Scottish Tourer Motorhome.  A great experience from the time we contacted Dawn to the time we returned the vehicle.  The rental process was really efficient, Dawn and the team were very friendly and offered great advice and the “Skye” motorhome was immaculate and had everything in it we could possibly need.  Thank you!”
 
Thanks once again.  We really enjoyed our holiday in our little home!

May 2019 - George and Doreen

On our "bucket list" for some time, we decide to hire a motorhome from Scottish Tourer and explore the Outer Hebrides. The Islay 4-berth motorhome more than met our expectations.It was comfortable and adequate space for a retired couple. Fully equipped with all we needed,shower/wc,cooker, fridge, TV, wifi and specially programmed sat-nav by the company to identify campsites, etc. The Islay made a perfect home for our 10 day trip through some of the most stunning scenery we have ever experienced. It was easy to drive and although we were a little apprehensive at first, getting on and off island ferries was no problem at all.

We hired a motor home for our first visit to Scotland, the service was exceptional as was the motor home. The motor home was only a month old, as was all of the fleet (they change them every year), and was just the right specification for our holiday, everything we needed was provided as well as a detailed sat nav with camping spots and facilities pre-programmed. The handover at collection and drop off was very efficient with little fuss. We were provided with an appropriate level of instruction and were able to park our car in a secure garage so we knew it would be safe whilst we were on holiday. Scotland is a glorious country and we will visit again in one of these Motorhomes.

Thank you to all at Scottish Tourer for their attention to detail and very good customer service. The motorhome was superb  was well equipped with everthing that  was required. I would have no hestitation in recommendingto anyone thinking of enjoying a luxury touring experience to contact Scottish Tourers whom I am certain will be only to able  to advise on what van to hire and if you are new to touring are able to provide excellent touring routes and and wild camping sites.

The second year running we’ve hired a motorhome from Scottish Tourer.  This time it was the “Skye” for a trip through the Highlands, the West Coast and Outer Hebrides – the Hopscotch ticket from CalMac Ferries together with the suggested routes and wild camping spots shown on the SatNav proved with the motorhome made this so easy and enjoyable.   Terrific scenery with some wonderful beaches and great roads.

Again the service provided by Scottish Tourer was excellent.  We were collected from Edinburgh Airport, shown around the motorhome and were soon on our way.  Corrine even allowed us to take their shuttle bus to local supermarket for some shopping prior to departure – what service.  On return, a quick check over the vehicle by Dawn and we were taken back to the airport.  All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday with excellent service from the Scottish Tourer team - highly recommended.  We will be hiring from Scottish tourer again next year.

Jun 2019 - Alex and Margaret Fidler

We hired a motorhome ( A Swift Islay) for 8 days from Scottish Tourer.
They had been recommended to us, and the early communications were all so clear and professional, that we decided to ‘take the plunge’ for our first motorhome adventure with them.

We have not been disappointed.

The motorhome was well spec’d, and instructions on how to use the equipment were done sufficiently well enough to make us feel semi-confident driving off.

We thoroughly enjoyed our adventure in the West of Scotland, and Scottish Tourer were always available as back-up if we ever needed it.
(we did in fact call on a few occasions (one time a Saturday evening), and nothing was too much trouble to answer the queries.
They ‘do what is said on the tin’, and more. They were always very pleasant to deal with.
So much so, we have enquired about hiring again !

Btw, our motorhome adventure was top-class too.

Jul 2019 - Gill Renney

From the informative communications about the booking and preparation of route planning though to the collection of the motorhome, every aspect of this company is excellent. Dawn and Gordon were both extremely helpful and knowledgeable giving us more confidence in our first taste of wild camping. The motorhome we rented was the Skye model. It was amazing! It was roomy, comfortable and very well equipped. There was lots of storage and the Sat Nav loaded with very detailed information was so valuable. We had a very enjoyable week and look forward to more motorhome touring.
 

Jul 2019 - Lorna Kelly

First time rental/driving a motorhome, took their advice on board about which road to start our travels until we got used to the size of the vehicle, and we were so glad we did, allowed us to get confidence and enjoy the experience from the start. Vehicle was superb, and although we had a lot to learn about water, waste etc the initial hand over gave us all the information we needed. We had planned our route, where we wanted to visit, which was well worth while. We loved every minute and can't thank the team at Scottish Tourers enough for their advice, support and service, can't recommend them enough. This has given us the bug.....

Jul 2019 - Anthony Ransome

First Class! We can certainly recommend this lovely family business.

Jul 2019 - Keith and Jean Ferry

For our first motorhome trip we have just returned from a three week tour of the outer Hebrides. It was a holiday we had been planning for years but we were nervous about hiring a motorhome, we should not have been, from an initial email enquiry the customer service was very personal and efficient with a very helpful attention to detail regarding our route planning. The motorhome itself had everything and more, we wild camped in sheer comfort with the knowledge that we could phone the team anytime should we hit a problem. Thankyou for making our trip an adventure.

Jul 2019 - Patrick Aasen

My dad and I rented a motorhome for 12 days. The motorhome was top notch, completely modern, and an absolute joy to travel in. ST's service was fantastic too. Everyone is very friendly, they have more recommendations than one could ever need, and one can call them whenever some questions or problems appear. They also charged us very reasonably for a scratch we caused during the trip. If we ever go on a similar trip again, we would definitely go with Scottish Tourer.

Jul 2019 - Rupert Overbury

Corinne, Dawn and Gordon gave great advice and support before and during our week’s holiday. The Bessacarr was very comfortable, easy to drive and a great base from which to go on long walks, bike rides and fishing trips. We found some beautiful places to stay (Ardfern and Loch Earn) and have taken away some great memories. It has inspired us to go motorhoming again. 5 star rating.

Jul 2019 - Karl Bailey

We have just returned home after a fantastic week away on our Scottish adventures covering just under 800 miles. We picked up the motorhome after a comprehensive walk around explaining all the features and how things worked by Dawn and off we went, the motorhome was immaculate and easy to drive despite being 8m long. We tried a few nights away wild camping and found some truly amazing places and felt like we had the place to ourselves. The motorhomes come complete with everything you will ever need for your trip including a fully loaded satnav showing you wild camping spots, campsites, water stops etc etc, The whole process from start to finish was very professional and the service from all the family was first class and any questions we had for them got answered very quickly. I would highly recommend Scottish Tourers for anyone looking to rent a motorhome and are already looking to return with them next year. A massive thank you to you all

Jul 2019 - Elenora Gay

Perfection. We rented a motorhome with Scottish Tourer in may for 10 days and I can say with no doubts that it was the best rental experience I ever had. No hidden fees, no problems, motorhomes in perfect conditions, very clean. They include in the price what for most of other rental companies is an extra charge (i.e. outdoor chairs and table); and a GPS with golden information for your trip (wild camping spots, tap water points etc.) Booking, pick up and drop off very easy; they don’t look for the little scratch to charge you extra money, they enjoyed to see their vehicle well treated, they want to make sure you live an amazing experience in their beautiful country. During the rental period they are always available by phone in case you have a doubt/problem. When I’ll go back to Scotland I will definitely rent with them again; It was a pleasure!!! Keep up the amazing job and thank you for the beautiful experience!
 

Jul 2019 - Ray Stokes

Fantastic company to work with! I would book with them again in a heartbeat. Great communication, fantastic motorhome, easy to deal with. More than fair. Do not nickel and dime you to death. Their goal seems to be making sure you have a quality experience. Cannot think of a negative thing to report, but there are lots and lots of positives. Love this company.

Jul 2019 - Simon Mearns

Stunning! would describe both the Fabulous Scottish scenery, and the Islay Motorhome from Scottish Tourer. The van was immaculate inside and out and was ideal to tour some of the UK's most iconic routes, in snow, rain, hail, and even a little sunshine! The advice from Gordon and Corinne when we collected the van was first class. we managed to wild-camp 4 out of 6 nights..... Many Thanks, making plans for next road trip already!

My family and I can highly recommend Scottish Tourer as from the start of the booking process they were amazing. Able to help tailor make our holiday that was best suited to us. The wild camping was phenomenal and everything was loaded on the Tom Tom which made life so easy for us on the road. The campervans were in supreme condition, clean, new and beautiful! Our experience from start to finish was fantastic. Bravo Scottish Tourer and thanks for the very memorable holiday.

Jul 2019 - Smith Family

We were picked up from Edinburgh Airport to take us to the Perth depot. We were shown round our motorhome (Islay model) and provided succinct instructions on how to operate everything, including the emptying and refilling of the waste etc. An excellent handover. We roughly followed the west coast route provided by Scottish Tourer, adjusted for our 7 day trip. The Sat Nav was really good, including showing the location of wild camps. The equipment on the motorhome was excellent, like home from home. TV signal was a bit hit and miss but we were touring round and was glad to get away from the TV!

Jun 2019 - Alistair and Hazel McKenzie

We sailed from Gills Bay to St Margaret’s Hope with Pentland Ferries.  It was an hour’s crossing.

Orkney is very well set up for motor homes.  Every wee harbour has a big long hose that you can top up with clean water.  Every beach has public toilets with an outside tap.  They were immaculately clean.  There are loads of places to park with stunning views and we did not use a campsite once.  No liquid gas though so need to be full before you go.  

When we were there (first week in June) it was very, very cold and extremely windy so best to go prepared for all weathers.  

It is a very beautiful island, hugely agricultural with plenty to do and see.
 

Jul 2019 - Susan Blair

Our week in the marvellous Skye motorhome was fantastic - it really did feel like a home from home. The Skye was so comfortable and versatile as we toured the west coast. The layout for our family of three worked really well as the space is organised so well. The condition of the Skye was immaculate and we loved the whole experience. We have been lucky to travel all over the world staying at some amazing hotels but we can honestly say this was one of the best holidays we have ever had. We loved it and can't wait to explore more of our beautiful part of the world. We will definitely use Scottish Tourer again but next time we will try out some wild camping. We can't recommend Scottish Tourer or this type of holiday highly enough. 

Aug 2019 - Mc Donald Family

We had the most wonderful two week holiday in the Islay motorhome from Scottish Tourer. Corinne, Gordon, and Dawn were so helpful every step of the way, always quick to answer our questions and patient in explaining how everything worked. The Islay was well-equipped, clean, and supremely comfortable. We loved exploring the wild camping sites marked on the satnav, which took us to beautiful, remote places we never could have discovered on our own. Without hesitation, we would recommend Scottish Tourer, and would quite happily book another holiday with them again. 


Thank you again. We absolutely loved our holiday and hope to see you again in future! 
 

May 2019 - Kathrin, Max, Uli and Helge from Heimstetten, Germany

From the first minute we had the feeling that it was the right decision to choose Scottish Tourer! The booking was very uncomplicated and very friendly from the first contact. One reason why we chose Scottish Tourer was because the motorhomes are fitted with a lot of extras already included in the price. At other hirers one would have to pay for all the additional equipment like camping table, barbecue or GPS navigation. Only the interface for connecting an iPod to the car's radio was not available as described.
As we arrived in Perth we were well received with a very good coffee and a nice talk. The introduction to the motorhome was very good. Corrine and Gordon answered every question patiently. After 30 minutes we could start to put our stuff into the camper. We could leave our empty suitcases at Corrine's and Gordon's home which saved a lot of space in the motorhome- a great service! The support was very good throughout the whole trip. We had a small accident where we lost our right mirror. Gordon gave us instructions what to do and after a few hours we could continue our journey. Returning the motorhome was also absolutely uncomplicated. The motorhome had two dents caused by the accident. The costs for the repair and for the new mirror where totally fair and we did not feel screwed at all.
We can recommend Scottish Tourer to anyone who is looking for a fair and friendly hirer with a familiarly atmosphere and great service. We would definitely decide to hire at Scottish Tourer any time again.

Thank you very much for all your time yesterday, and to Dawn for taking us through everything we need to know for the van. A particular thank you for all the time she and you all spent preparing the van, cleaning, replacing fabrics and carpets etc. It is immaculate and will be a pleasure to live in. Our journey home was straightforward, if rather wet, and the van is now safely hooked up at a site near here.  

I have let Richard know that if he has any further questions, you have offered to be at the end of a phone, but for the moment he’s going through the paperwork and understanding the technical things he needs to.

I hope you have a good 2020 season, in spite of the obstacles being put in your way, and thanks again for everything.

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday touring the Higlands in a cosy Scottish Tourer motorhome. The Jura was compact and well equipped with everything we needed to suit the needs of the two of us.  The satnav helped us to find places off the beaten track and we spent several nights in remote locations surrounded by fabulous views. 
The Jura was comfortable and easy to manoeuvre and park and the higher driving position enabled us to enjoy the stunning scenery to the max. We had a comprehensive handover by Dawn at the start and knew that she would be at the end of the phone should we need anything. Corinne made the return handover quick and easy and we were soon on our transfer back to the airport, courtesy of Scottish Tourers.

Thank you for a great holiday, we would love to return again soon and maybe try out the Islay next time!

We rented a Skye Motorhome for one week in September, it certainly was a great adventure. We were motorhome virgins and wanted to try something different from our usual flight and hotel holiday. We picked Scottish Tourers because we were impressed with the website describing luxurious spacious motorhomes of less than one year old, and ideal for couples. The contact and booking process was seamless and we were provided with lots of reassurance and useful information to prepare us for our trip. 
We hadn’t actually stepped inside a motorhome until the day we picked up the Skye, but Gordon gave us a very thorough introduction and showed us how everything worked. The interior layout of the motorhome was vey well thought out, we were pleasantly surprised how comfortable the bed was, and how good and efficient the heating and hot water was. Even the toilet surpassed our expectations and we soon got into a rhythm of topping up fresh water, emptying grey waste and dealing with the toilet, but honestly it was all fine.
What we really enjoyed was being on the road, the freedom of just going where you fancied with no firm route in mind. We loved the high seating position, the views and scenery in Scotland are just stunning.  It didn’t take long to get use to driving the motorhome, I struggled with correct gear selection for a couple of hours, but I’ve been driving automatic cars for many years. Thankfully we returned the motorhome with no scrapes or knocks, just be careful of your door mirrors and you will be fine.

We stayed in a mix of campsites and wild camping, and our personal preference was for a campsite with mains electric hook-up and all the other facilities to hand. Having said that, the Skye is more than capable of standalone wild camping and we probably just need to be more confident on our next trip now we that know what we’re doing.

A motorhome holiday has been on our bucket list for years, so we can tick that off now. We really had great fun and I can certainly recommend Scottish Tourers for the high spec motorhome and exceptional service, thank you.
