This was our first Motor home holiday,Gordon showed us how everything worked and gave us advice about Skye and where to go, we took his advice about staying at Kinloch camping site in Dunvegan lovely toilets and showers!
We had a lovely meal at the Old School Restaurant which was only a short walk away. Dunvegan Castle is worth a visit too with their Fairy Flag! We saw Kilt Rock The Old Man of Storr. Portree Harbour,we went to Glen Btittle to see Fairy Pools! I loved silver shop in Broadford called Love from Skye! We took the ferry back from Armadale to Mallaig and had a night wild camping at the side of Loch Morar- Magic!
Scottish Tourer is a lovely family run business and my husband John and I would not hesitate to recommend them - you are in safe hands!
Scottish Tourer is a friendly, family run business with over 30 years of motor-home experience. This year we decided on having a different holiday rather than the norm of getting on a plane and flying to the sun. Having never driven a motor-home before, or operated one, it could have been more than we bargained for. However, Corrine and Gordon provided a great introduction to motor homing and went through all the vehicle features with some great advice on driving. The motor-home was presented to us very clean, everything topped up and ready to go. Included in the deal was a TomTom that had been loaded with a very comprehensive database which included essential points of interest such as LPG and fuel stations, public toilets, water services and much more. Also included is a booklet which contains recommended places to visit, places to eat all tried and tested by Scottish Tourer. This made operating the motor home very easy which was a concern to us as first timers. We toured the West Coast route as recommended by Corrine and Gordon and thoroughly enjoyed our first holiday in a motor-home. Scottish Tourer has a fantastic product which we fully recommend and we will be returning very soon to enjoy the beautiful scenery and places of interest Scotland has to offer. A big thank you to Corrine, Gordon and family for making our holiday a wonderful experience. See you soon. Andy and Jacquie
Hired a Skye motor home for 7 nights between may and June ,on pickup
day everything was explained to us about the operation of the van equipment
including the very usefull tomtom, van drove really well and the holiday was possibly one of the best we have ever had also Gordon and Corrine were at the end of the phone if there were any problems (Highly recommended)
Never had a motorhome before, so found the first few miles a bit scary, but soon got used to it, spent the first night nearby at Blair Athol site to acquaint ourselves with the idea of living in a motorhome for a couple of weeks. It had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. Spent most evenings watching the abundance of wildlife around us, brilliant. The sat nav provided great information about our chosen route, although it didn't tell us that the west coast of Scotland would be under a cloud of rain, whilst everyone else in the UK sweltered! Never mind it didn't stop us doing what we wanted, walking and relaxing in glorious countryside. The hire of the home was straight forward, and we felt that if we needed any help, that it was there at the end of the telephone line, but we didn't need it. Handing it back was just as easy. All good holidays have to end. Thank you to the whole family for making it a special experience.
My wife and l had a wonderful week in the Islay motor home. it was a perfect size for the two of us and a perfect size for the Scottish roads. We spent several day on Skye and the west coast, wild camping most nights. Scottish Tourers were able to help us with the wild camping sites. Words cannot describe how great the motor home was. A first rate company who we will be re booking with.
Scottish Tourer motorhomes are an excellent way to holiday. We had a new vehicle and toured north of Scotland for a week. The service is second to none - everything explained and help on hand any time it is required. Satnav is a treasure of information for touring - all ready loaded with places to stop, fuel, water etc. Thank you Gordon, Corrinne and Dawn for providing this excellent service.
Our first motorhome holiday, in May 2017, was an unqualified success.
I did plenty of online research in 2016, and eventually spoke to Gordon; who ever so patiently answered my many ridiculous questions.
We chose a Skye model for a one week break and drove up from Southern England. Quite a lot of the "kit" we brought we left in our car, as the Motorhome was fully loaded already.
Gordon gave us a comprehensive overview of the outside and driving tips, whilst his daughter then gave an even more comprehensive overview of the interior.
One hour after arriving we were on our way and full of confidence.
The tom tom was very useful and took us to some brilliant places.
I nearly didn't write this review as I didn't want to increase competition for this holiday.
But put quite simply if you are thinking of going to Scotland or if you are thinking about a motor home holiday, then I can not recommend highly enough the people, the service, from first call to goodbye wave, the equipment, the home on wheels that we found at Scottish Tourers.
We will be back and next time for 2 weeks.
