After a fantastic week in May 2019, touring in a Skye we decided to buy our own motorhome. The pandemic made us realize that this would allow us to have safe short breaks and extended holidays as and when we were able.
We decided to contact Gordon immediately after looking at available options shown on the Scottish Tourer website. After a 10 minute chat, we put a deposit on an Islay model. We bought this unseen because we had so much trust in this company to provide us with a used motorhome which will have been well looked after and in excellent condition.
We had to wait till the end of October until we could collect it but it was certainly worth the wait. We had a very long journey to Perth from our home in Essex but the reassurance of buying from Gordon and Corrine made it worthwhile. They were and still are always on hand to answer any queries which arise as this is our first experience of owning a motorhome. Hopefully we’ll have lots of opportunities to travel around in 2021!!!
We thoroughly recommend them as a great company to give you excellent service if you wish purchase an excellent motorhome.
Simply the most stunning scenery we have ever seen, at what turns out to be an amazing time of year to explore. But coupled with this unforgettable trip was the fantastic MotorHOME AND Customer service from Scottish Tourers.
We hired their Islay motorhome for 1 week and being new to Motor homes, we apprehensively arrived in Perth to collect. All our fears were eased with a very friendly, smooth , and COVID secure handover.
Thoroughly recommend hiring a motor home from Scottish Tourer. Corrine made the booking process easy and sent regular emails confirming payments and providing useful advance information about the vehicle.
Dawn ensured we were confident to drive and get the most from the vehicle on collection day. COVID safety was evident.
Thank you - we’ll be back next year for
Having recently returned from three weeks touring in the Islay motorhome we wanted to thank everyone at Scottish Tourer for enabling us to have a truly memorable holiday. The initial booking process was straight forward and the route suggestions provided on booking were invaluable in planning the holiday. Sending us the info (video and printed) about the set up of the motorhome prior to picking it up was a great idea as it meant we were already familiar with the various functions before we set off. Everything worked perfectly. The heating was wonderfully quick and efficient which was invaluable in mid October. The pre-programmed sat nav with wild camping spots was great (although sadly, due to Covid, several now had ‘No Overnight Camping’ signs prominently displayed). In our three weeks we covered most of the west coast from Ullapool to Lochgilphead as well as Skye and the Outer Hebrides (involving 5 separate ferry trips between islands). The Islay was great, we had no problems at all with anything, apart from the weather). The night at Duntulum on Skye when the motorhome was rocked violently for several hours in gale force winds is one we will never forget! In summary – to anyone thinking of a Scottish motorhome holiday don’t look any further – Scottish Tourer is the best!

Will we hire again, you bet…can’t wait for our next adventure….thanks again to Gordon and the team from Dougie/Carole
We loved our first holiday in your motor home, we had never done anything like this before as we normally go abroad but due to the Covid situation we wanted to have a holiday away from home but wanted to be safe at the same time.
The great thing is we just went where the weather was best and had some great fun paddle boarding on the west coast and catching crabs in the sea.
Our 9 year old thought it was a fantastic adventure and now wants to do the same again next Easter.
The motor home was very comfortable and spotless when we collected it, and we found the whole process of booking, collecting and returning very well organised and easy for us.
You have thought of everything from marking wild camp sites, gas top up and fresh water fill up points on the sat nav, to solar power for running the motor home without the need to be connected to an electric hook up point.
We will definitely be booking another motor home with you guys.
Just to say what an amazing holiday Lizzie and I have had in your Tiree over the last fortnight. As ever, we were delighted with every aspect of our dealings with Scottish Tourers. You have a fabulous business, a most impressive facility and we have so enjoyed our contacts with you over the last couple of years. We very much look forward to arranging a holiday in May or June next year and are most humbled and grateful for your offer to include us as ‘friends’ with the possibility of the purchase of a new vehicle through you next year. That is very generous and most kind.
I have attached a photo of a night we stayed close to the pier 400m south of Achnamara, near Crinan. It was very peaceful.
Our week in one of your Lewis Motorhomes proved to be a great success.
Your pre collection information was really useful and before we set off the hand over was clear and friendly
Taking two very young grandchildren was an undertaking but they loved the back two single beds and slept all night each night
I would recommend the Motorhome /Caravan park at Hopeman, right beside the sea , on the Moray Firth,superb facilities and super clean .
The Motorhome was so well equipped from the good fridge , to the big garage at the back for our bikes and Your picnic gear and as it was October , wet shoes etc
Thank you for speedily returning our damage deposit and hopefully we will book again with you when things get back to normal
Count this as a 5* review
Having never hired a motorhome we weren’t really sure what to expect. However, Gordon, Corrine and Dawn at Scottish Tourer made the entire process from start to finish very simple. The amount of information provided about the motorhome, recommended routes, wild camping locations and pit stop locations was first class. Pickup and return process was really easy and a great holiday was had exploring the west coast and Skye. Would recommend Scottish Tourer to anyone thinking about hiring a motorhome
This was our first motorhome holiday and it won't be our last! We regularly holiday in Scotland but it was fantastic to 'wild camp' in some beautiful remote spots. The 'wild camping' database that you receive after booking that is also on the motorhome's satnav is a fabulous resource.The motorhome was new this season, very clean and everything worked perfectly. We were nervous about driving one for the first time but Dawn gave us lots of reassurance and helpful advice on the phone prior to booking. Karen's handover on collection was friendly, reassuring, efficient and very helpful as was Gordon's advice of a suitable spot to stay close by on our first night as we were tired after a long drive. Very efficient administration including very prompt refund of damage deposit - would highly recommend Scottish Tourer.
Three of us spent a week touring the Outer Hebrides in an Islay motorhome. We were a little apprehensive, as we were new to this sort of holiday - but it could not have gone better. The van had lots of oomph; manoeuvred well on the road, and we found it easy to manage the cooker/beds/loo etc. Scottish Tourer had programmed suitable sites for wild camping into the satnav, which allowed us to stay in some stunning settings, undisturbed.
All in all, we were delighted - also with the friendly and efficient service at Scottish Motorhomes: we were able to take possession of the Islay, and return it at the end of our holiday, with minimum fuss or delay.
Having Just spent my first week in a Mobile Home on a vacation in the Highlands, I have to say that my long survey on who to go with , what company would have the most positive outlook in support, admin and most importantly what I felt was the most reliable source of transport, Scottish Tourer was my end choice and I am pleased to say the right choice, a very professional company in all that they do at the depot and indeed whilst on the road. Their GPS system they supplied gave me all the information required with regards Wild sites, water supplies, toilets and gas all pinned clearly on the GPS, the vehicle, as with all their vehicle registered 2020 was well powered by a 2.7 engine for the mountain roads, extremely comfortable with all amenities including wi-fi on board.
Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the week and will be definitely back next year, great people, hard to find these days.

Hi there all at Scottish tourers I would like to say a big thank you to Dawn for all her help when my wife and I hired the tiree Motorhome for 7 nights . the Motorhome was so spacious and luxurious which made our holiday so much more enjoyable I’ve seen what other hirers are putting out there for same price this company are very professional in every sense thanks again John & annabell ps we will be back
We had an excellent week in the motor home and your service was fantastic and you obviously care about customer satisfaction. The communication prior to us collecting the van from you was great and the instructions emailed were a great help. I’m glad that we could return it unscathed. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to others and we even showed someone around the van who was interested in a motor home holiday while we were on Skye. Keep up the good work and stay safe.
I think the only things we thought people should know before setting off were;
Can’t think of anything else, it was all good.
As complete newbies to the whole experience of motorhoming my wife and I could not have chosen a better company to introduce us than Scottish Tourer. Dawn's introductions to the various functions of the motorhome and her non-patronising manner were extremely helpful. We met some folks on our travels who had hired from a different company and we were able to explain some functions of their motorhome that hadn't been made clear to them. Made me feel like a proper seasoned traveller! The motorhome itself was presented to us in absolutely spotless condition, it was comfortable to drive and most importantly, comfortable to sleep in, having an island bed with a proper memory-foam mattress. Although the outside temperature was at times almost freezing, a quick blast of the heating soon had us cosy again. All in all, we felt valued and cared for as customers of Scottish Tourer and would not hesitate to recommend them, or indeed, hire from them again.
We had a Barra, which was immaculate and fairly spacious for the four of us (children 14 & 10). Dawn was so helpful, quick and efficient to reply, and we felt they really cared and wanted us to have a wonderful holiday! Instructions on how to use and operate everything in the van was really clear. The best thing was wild camping advice and route suggestions that they emailed to us ahead of the holiday - routes, with recommended eating places, camp sites and activity/attraction highlights etc - and sat nav/maps with tried and tested wild camping spots (marked with love hearts for their favourites!). They were always on call if we needed them. All of this made our holiday a great adventure with some wonderful places to stay. We will certainly book through Scottish Tourer again when we head back up to breathtaking Scotland! Big thank you from the Harrison family!
The best trip ever touring around the west coast of Scotland in a Scottish Tourer (ST) motorhome. ST were professional and helpful from booking and throughout. They give advice on best trips for the length of your rental and a really good route which we used as our guide for places to visit and stay. The wild camping was great, again they use a sat nav and programme all of these places in so you can see where they are on the route - it's an extra aid and really useful especially for motorhome and Scotland virgins like us! Would highly recommend if you are planning something like this, use ST. And the Scottish Highlands and the west coast (we also went onto Skye), are stunning, we are definitely returning. Thank you Gordon, Dawn and Corinne!
Thanks to Scottish Tourers our holiday in the West of Scotland & Skye was not only exciting, but left us with long standing happy memories.
After meeting up with Gordon, Corinne & Dawn we had a full & through briefing of the motorhome we were taking out – as first timers, this was very useful & reassuring. Their attention to detail and focus on customer satisfaction was demonstrated by the high quality specification of the vehicle both internally & externally. The vehicle was immaculate and exceptionally kitted out with the necessary equipment to ensure a worry free holiday.
Details via a TomTom were provided to suggest routes, idyllic wild camping locations, camp sites, fuel stations, LPG and much more – plus mobile phone back up, in case of any query.
This left us only to concentrate on getting the most from our time away – many thanks.
Detailed guidance on wild camping Scotland was particularly useful. The vehicle Tiree was practically new and ideal for a luxury couples break. All personnel especially Dawn were very helpful and always at hand for the duration of the trip. Would definitely use Scottish Tourer again.
We have just returned from the most amazing two week holiday in a Scottish Tourer Barra motorhome. We loved every minute of it! Gordon, Corrinne & Dawn provided us with superb customer service from the moment we booked. It was clear from the start that they put the customer at the heart of their business as they took no deposit due to the Covid situation. As it happened, the lockdown was still in place at the time of our original booking but ST offered us alternatives later in the summer as, fortunately for us, some of the Europeans cancelled due to Corona. We received excellent pre-holiday instructions, including a video of how to operate the boiler, water pump etc. This was also provided on a USB stick, already plugged into the TV, so that you could refer back to it if necessary. ST provided a GPS with stops for water, toilet disposal and wild camping. We wild camped 10 nights out of 14 and loved it! At one point I was a bit concerned that there might have been a problem with the water pump (there wasn't - it was just a small air block) and decided to play it safe and phone ST about it. They could not have been more helpful. The motorhome was spotlessly clean (and had been disinfected because of Covid) and, from our point of view, benefitted hugely from the company policy of not allowing pet owners or smokers - so no unpleasant smells! Thank you to ST for helping me to achieve a bucket list holiday (we did the Outer Hebrides - breath-takingly beautiful!).
Hired the Skye vehicle for a week and had a fabulous time. We wild camped the entire week and met some lovely people and really relaxed.
Motorhome was in excellent condition and the bedding and towels were good quality and took away the hassle of taking home too much laundry.
This was our first time hiring a motorhome. And I would highly recommend this company. The family team running this company are so helpful and friendly, and they really do care about you,the customer . Nothing was too much trouble. There is a comprehensive demonstration at the pickup point, on how to use all the facilities in your motorhome, so you drive away fully confident that your going to have a wonderful holiday. So if you want to have a hassle free holiday, with a company that REALLY does CARE. Scottish Tourer is the company to go to. A big Thank You , from the Millar Family, from Southampton.
Just returned from a one week holiday in a motor home from Scottish Tourer. (we hired the Barra) From the initial enquiry right to picking up the motor home everyone at Scottish Tourer we spoke to about the holiday were excellent and very informative. Having never even been inside a motor home we were a little unsure about how things worked but during the handover Dawn explained everything.
We found it easy to drive. We did a whirlwind tour of the North and West Scotland seeing some amazing scenery and although the weather wasn’t great still had a good time.
We would recommend Scottish Tourer to anyone.
Thanks to the team for all their help.
Hired the Lewis camper van for the week, and WOW it was great, the whole family loved it. My daughter loved it so much she was heartbroken to give it back. Great experience and would definitely do it again. Everybody at Scottish tourers were so helpful and accommodating and I can’t thank them enough. The camper van was really clean and the added extras ie (bbq, camping seats and table) made it so much easier. Look forward to doing it all again with Scottish Tourers.
Epic CamerVan Scottish Adventure, 1st class Family Run Business - Gordon + team super helpful, experienced/organised from initial email inquiry and throughout whole trip. Great tips when planning, always helpful on phone/email and picked/dropped at Perth station too. Van was amazing!
Huge thanks for such a memorable family holiday.
We recently hired a motor home from Scottish Tourers which was ideal for our wee road trip. The vehicle was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The service from the staff impeccable. The addition of the sat nav giving wild camping areas was perfect. We had issues using it but that was down to our ignorance of technology (an age thing!).
We would have no hesitation recommending Scottish Tourers to anyone.
From the moment we e-mailed until the pick-up we were absolutely delighted with all aspects. We even went along beforehand to choose the kind of motorhome most suitable, and Gordon, Corinne and Dawn could not be more helpful. We were given thorough instruction on operation of heating etc before we were let loose. We were comforted and at ease to know that all three were only a phone call away if we had any problems. We had a fantastic tour of the west coast and our Skye motorhome was more than comfortable, with everything we could possibly need, including a very informative satnav. We will be returning to take on another part of Scotland. Thank you all once again for a carefree holiday in one of you immaculate motorhomes.
