Thank you Graham Clark for taking the time to write a review.

We collected our brand new Islay from Gordon who explained all the ins and outs of how things worked from the driving cab and sat-nav through to how to empty the toilet cassette. Its a lot to take on board but theres further notes and contact numbers if needed. The Motorhome was kitted out with everything except bedding - available if required - and our personal belongings. All new or at least 'as new', so no pressure at all to keep things that way!
We needn't have worried as the van and its operation was pretty straightforward and part of the fun was getting used to using everything. Gordon and Corrine know about all there is to know about motorhoming and set the vans up specially to allow off grid or 'wild' camping although it's not that wild in a luxury van.
We spent a great week away from it all on the Isle of Mull with its stunning scenery and peaceful atmosphere. The bug bit us last year, and we have our own van now, but having experienced other hire companies, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Scottish Tourer to anyone wanting to experience the freedom of the motorhome lifestyle.

Thank you Karin for your picture and kind words, were glad you had a fantastic holiday and look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future.

Thank you so much for all your help and support for our holiday in one of your vans last week. The weather was fabulous and so was the route you recommended to us. Your plan of the West Coast Route was easy to follow and we saw some fab places along the way. There was everything we needed in the van and it felt like holidaying with a hotel on wheels, with different views each day and wild camping along the way, I would highly recommend your company to hire a van from!
Hope to see you again in a couple of years!

Just wanted to say what a great experience it was hiring from Scottish Tourer for our first motorhome holiday. We have visited the West Coast before, but this took our experience to a whole different level.

The handover was excellent, and although there is quite a lot to take in, when you have done everything once yourself you realise how straight forward everything is. Dawn gave us great advice, to follow the weather and head east rather than west initially, which gave us the chance to find a beautiful wild camp on the River Dee in Ballater, before journeying west towards Ullapool. This first night success gave us confidence that we could find great wild camp spots if we used the sat nav info. And we found some great spots...Loch Assynt, Firemore Beach, Loch Maree where some of the best.

Some of our not to miss places and moments would include a wander up the hill behind Ullapool to see the views of Loch Broom and the Summer Isles, seafood platter and a flight of beer (for the passenger at least!) at the Kylesku Hotel, a visit to the Elphin Village Hall Market on a Wednesday, to pick up Highland Charcuterie - the Venison Pastrami is worth any detour - Firemore Beach for sunset and BBQ and Slatterdale wild camp on Loch Maree. Our absolute highlight was buying a huge amount of Langoustine from a fishing boat in Gairloch to BBQ beside Loch Maree, heaven!

A couple of notes for first time motorhome hirers, taps can be a bit hard to find even with the sat nav, but the water tank seemed to last us about 3 days or so, so a campsite stop mid week is a good idea providing a chance to empty waste and fill water if you want to have more of a wild camp experience the rest of the time. Blair Atholl caravan site, next to the castle allow you to empty waste tank for £2.50, which is handy for the return journey if you prefer to wild camp on your last night. If you have the time, check out a few wild camp spots on Google before you go, so you can get a street view to aid finding the perfect spot rather than driving to find them. I would avoid the Bridge of Tilt wild camp spot though, as there is a 2.9m bridge and a very long reverse to get out if you go and find it. Aultbea Stores on Loch Ewe is a fantastically well stocked local store you will be amazed at the choice and the reasonable prices, and is a great way to buy local. Finally don’t plan to drive, drive, drive, the fun is stopping in places you wouldn’t otherwise stay and admiring what’s around you.

Thanks again for a great motorhome hire service from start to finish. We had a blast and that was down to the fantastic motorhome that Scottish Tourers hired to us, which was immaculate; the amazing sat nav info, which was invaluable and the great support and encouragement to wild camp that you gave us, which took our holiday to the next level and created some great memories.
