We hired the Islay for a 2 week tour of the Western coast. The van was handed over to us with plenty of good advice and information. We were a bit concerned given information on motorhomes being vandalised on the route 500. We were reassured by the team and only met most wonderful friendly people on our travels. Access to most wonderful scenery and peace and quiet was enabled by the motorhome.These are some of the views.

Booked ‘The Arran’ motorhome with Scottish Tourer for myself and my partner. The company were helpful from the outset. We were a last minute booking due to a cancellation and Corrine was very helpful, sending us lots of important and useful guides and videos - really useful for first-time motorhomers! Collection was easy and we were given a run down of everything we needed to know. Also given lots of assistance to mount our bikes. The motorhome itself was spotless and ran well for our 7 night trip without issue. Overall an excellent experience and unforgettable trip. Thank you Scottish Tourer. Would definitely book again and recommend friends/family.

We had a great experience with Scottish Tourer motorhome hire. As a family of four (including a 3 month old and a 3 year old) we planned to explore Scotland for an 8 night late Summer break in Sept 2021.

We decided to hire the Scottish Tourer Lewis motorhome given the extra space on offer.

Scottish Tourer provided excellent communication and advice before collection including a suggested West Coast route for a family. The route was detailed with suggestions of sights to see, places to stay (wild camping spots and campsites) and roads/routes to travel on (and ones to avoid). Links to Google Maps with pins of spots/motor home service facilities/petrol stations/LPG was also invaluable.

Collection of the motorhome was hassle free at their Perth facility. The vehicle was very clean and presentable. The team provided a detailed introduction to the features of the motorhome (systems/heating/hot water etc) and we were given plenty of time to transfer our masses of stuff into the van (the Lewis had plenty of space including a really useful garage at the back). The Lewis was a pleasure to drive (2020 model).

Unfortunately, early into our trip we broke the fridge door in a mishap rummaging in the fridge. After contacting Scottish Tourer as per their advice in case of damage this was dealt with in a professional manner upon our return with all costs clearly explained.

We had a great time, and particularly enjoyed the independence provided by motorhome travel with a young family in this COVID-era. The West coast was absolutely beautiful. Thanks to the Scottish Tourer team.

Just come back from a fantastic tour of the Outer Hebrides using a camper from Scottish Tourer. First time hiring, but Scottish Tourer helped us all the way. Great vans, great company, great people and great advice. What made a world of difference was their huge database of wild camp sites enabling us to stay in some wonderful and remote locations we would never have found ourselves. Totally recommended - if you are touring Scotland then use Scottish Tourer!

Having thoroughly enjoyed our first motor home experience two years ago under the expert guidance of Gordon's team touring around the Highlands and Western Islands we decided to buy a MoHo. We are now very happy with our 'Islay' which we bought from Scottish Tourers and have benefited from the excellent post sale support from Gordon in answering our queries.

We have just returned from a great two week trip in a Scottish Tourer ‘Lewis’ motor home. It was a trip of two halves. Initially we spent the first 8 nights on the Moray coast in some spectacular locations, Ballater on the way there, Portsoy, Cullen, Findochty, and Lossiemoth and back to Perth via Granton on Spey. Just the two of us in the Lewis so there was plenty of space. The Motorhome was well equipped, easy to drive and we managed to avoid any knocks or scrapes. We had exceptional weather and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and the walking. Back in Perth, we picked up two grandkids and joined my daughter, her husband and our other two g’kids at Craigtoun in St Andrews for a less relaxing but fun filled few days before returning ‘Huey’ Lewis to The Scottish Tourer team. I cannot fault the Scottish Tourer team from initial booking, handover and handback, the whole process was very professional and well organised. This, added to a great Motorhome, made for a first class two week holiday.

If you want to hire a Motorhome from the Best of the Best then Scottish Tourer is the way to go. My first experience of a motorhome and on my own. Dawn and Gordon, the owners, could not have been more accommodating and all the staff were equally as warm and welcoming. The motorhome itself was immaculate and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. I was given all the time I needed to be shown how to get the best from the motorhome and therefore my holiday. A contact mobile number was provided giving me the confidence that I could call at any time and they would be ready to help. I was so impressed that information, regarding the use of the motorhome, was sent to me prior to my holiday thus I felt I knew my way around before I arrived. I had the most amazing holiday and when I returned the home to Dawn I knew I would be back again. It truly felt that I had made knew friends at Scottish Tourer. The Motorhome was very easy to drive once you were aware of the width. All the necessary household jobs. such as filling with water, emptying the toilet cassette, emptying the waste water was simple and easy to do, with very clear instructions given when taking possession of the motorhome and in a instruction manual kept in the cab. There is a sat nav set up with safe and quiet wild parking places and information such as nearest water point, petrol station etc. The one point I have not mention is cost. Having researched a number of companies before booking, I found Scottish Tourer to be very reasonable and the price given covered everything. Any extras you may want were perfectly clear. Some other companies gave a basic price and then added on for such things as Sat Nav, Wifi etc. Scottish Tourer were completely transparent with their prices. I cannot recommend them highly enough and cannot wait to return very soon.

Absolutely 1st class professional and friendly service off Scottish tourers from initial inquiry to returning the Islay motor home after a 10 day hire. If your looking to hire a motorhome this is the firm to go with,our motorhome was superbly equipped with everything you need to enjoy the fabulous Scottish Highlands and Skye.

This was our first time as motorhome campers and what an adventure we had ! We travelled the west and east coast and Scottish Tourers guidance made it so easy. Our motorhome was surprisingly spacious, comfy and had everything you needed even when wild camping. Definitely recommend Scottish Tourers and will book again !

We picked up our Islay motorhome early on the Saturday morning which was great as we missed the later rush. Motorhome was new and spotless inside, appreciated all the extras like table and chairs included meaning we didn't have to bring them. Headed up the west coast and over to Skye which was beautiful, we did have excellent weather that helped, especially in keeping midges at bay. Company excelled itself when I had to deal with a wonky gas gauge showing empty after 3 days, got immediate help on the phone and reassurance all was ok but also got a call later to say they had found another source of gas in Ulapool if I wanted to top up, that's going the extra mile ! Satnav with wild camping sites, fuel and gas stops a great help when you need to top up or just stop for a rest. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company and will definitely use them again in the future... Thanks !

First time motorhome trip .. if we do it again we will use Scottish Tourer, and recommend them to anybody planning motorhoming in Scotland! Great location at bottom of A9 .. left car and our cares behind us as we headed North! We hired the Tiree as wanted lots of space for the 2 of us, and it delivered. Relatively easy to drive, but long so you have to be careful when turning. Booking easy and all the info and induction were clear and concise. Dawn answered her phone on the 3 occasions we rang while away, and reassured us that no issues and to focus on enjoying the holiday.

This was our first time renting a motorhome & booking with Scottish Tourer was the best experience we could have hoped for. They answered all our initial enquiries thoroughly, sent us holiday planning guides in advance, transferred us to & from the train station & generally provided an amazing service. Everything had been thought of by them. The motorhome itself had everything we could have wanted & made for the perfect home from home. We would definitely not hesitate to book with them again!

Recently returned from a week travelling from Perth up to John O’Groats/Scourie in a Scottish Tourers Islay Motorhome. All dealings from start to finish with everyone at ST were first class. These people know their stuff & give you all possible information you need plus fill you with confidence, important to us as it was our first time in a Motorhome. Nothing is too much trouble and the vehicle was like new, spotless & contained everything you could possibly need. Covid regulations were followed. Will have no hesitation using them again & already thinking about which part of Scotland to tour next in a Scottish Tourer Motorhome.

Great company to deal with.
My wife and I have just returned from a two week tour of the Highlands. The vehicle (Islay model) was in excellent condition upon pick-up. The company is very 'Covid-aware' and we felt that the vehicle interior was sterilised prior to us picking it up. It was our first time using a motorhome. Everything was included in the price (i.e. Satnav preprogrammed with various points of interest including very useful 'Wild Camping' locations, folding chairs and tables for outdoors, barbecue and wheel chocks) . All members of staff we dealt with were really friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble to them. The £700 deposit we left was refunded on the same day we dropped the vehicle back at the depot. We would have no hesitation using Scottish Tourers again.

Put simply we had a great holiday in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland thanks to Gordon, Corinne and Dawn. Their information and advice rooted in a love of what they do shone through. Every email and message from me, including had we turned on the gas properly, was responded to promptly and with great clarity. Their knowledgable enthusiasm for wild camping absolutely made the trip. I highly commend Scottish Tourer.

Jun 2021 - Gordon Gould

Great experience hiring a Barra from Scottish Tourer. Motorhome very clean and well equipped including chairs, table, bbq, levelling blocks etc. Good instructions on how to use everything and helpful suggestions on routes. Efficient pick up and drop off (although we were sad to return it at the end!).

May 2021 - Loren Hooldgate

Just had a fantastic week in an Islay motor home supplied by Scottish Tourers. From our initial enquiry right through to dropping the van off at the end of the holiday, the service could only be described as outstanding. The van was practically new and extremely well equipped, easy to drive and the preloaded sat nav and suggested itinerary meant that finding our way around and locating wild camping spots was simple with lots of options. This is a family business who provide lovely motor homes and superb customer care. Thank you Dawn, Gordon and Corinne, we will be back!! Harry and Loren

May 2021 - Leith McRobert

Third time we have used Scottish Tourers and they never disappoint! Very professional and nothing is too much trouble. Booking system is efficient and Covid precautions excellent. Had a great trip.

May 2021 - Robert Gale

We hired an automatic motorhome for 2 weeks and Scottish Tourer's made it so easy, it can be very difficult to compare different companies but with Scottish Tourer's everything is included no incidental costs the price you are quoted is the price you pay. I prefer to pay everything by credit card for extra protection but they don't take credit card and we sent the money by BACS, the damage waiver was returned the Monday after the vehicle had been returned the previous Saturday.

May 2021 - Jim Ormiston

For a long time my wife has fancied trying a motorhome holiday so following some internet research and glowing reviews I decided to try and book a surprise holiday for my wife with “Scottish Tourer”. I can truly say that the whole experience from initial contact through booking, picking up the motorhome and eventually going on holiday Gordon, Corinne and Dawn were a pleasure to deal with. They are obviously a very experienced and customer driven team, their vans are immaculate and the amount of touring information they provide is an added bonus. I would highly recommend Scottish Tourer for anyone considering a rental motorhome holiday, my wife and I will definitely be back probably booking a longer trip.

May 2021 - Richard Hindley

Thank you Scottish Tourer for an amazing holiday. Everything was perfect from the time we booked, right through to when we handed the motorhome back. When we picked up the motorhome it was immaculate, it looked just like it had come out of the showroom. It was our first time in motorhome, we will definitely be back.

May 2021 - Nick Howes

Sue and I rented a Barra motorhome from Scottish tourer and would not hesitate to do so again. From our first enquiry everyone there were responsive, informative and efficient. The information about routes and wild camping sites was extremely helpful, we would have been lost without it. The motorhomes they provide are new every season, ours had 5000 miles on the clock and was immaculate, as new. On return the checkout took 15 minutes, was trouble free and we were given a gratis lift to Perth railway station. Our deposit was in our bank account the next day. As good as it gets, to be reccomended without reservation. Nick and Sue Howes

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week trip in a Lewis motor home. We spent 10 nights wild camping and 4 on campsites where we could use the facilities. We visited Skye and returned via the Cairngorms but took things very easy enjoying the scenery and the walking. The weather was unseasonably cold and wet but with a warm and dry motor home to return to we were in heaven. The Lewis is very comfortable particularly as there are only 2 of us. It is roomy and well equipped and easy to drive and we managed to avoid any knocks or scrapes. The kitchen part is well equipped and fully functional and the beds comfy. We couldn’t get any TV reception but that was not a big issue as were were active during the day and easy to sleep at night. This is our second time out in a Lewis and we were very happy with it.

Apr 2021 - Keith Taylor

Thank you Scottish Tourer for a fantastic holiday. Everything was perfect from the time we booked, right through to when we handed the motorhome back. The staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. The Motorhome we hired was a Islay, it was immaculate and just perfect. It was our first time in motorhome, We will definitely return to Scottish Tourer.
