What Our Happy Customers Say:


“Hi Richard, just wanted to compliment you on your great service. Our motorhome was modern, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The handover was quick and efficient with everything explained clearly. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days away and will certainly return next time we go on our travels. Thanks again Richard, good luck with the business, you deserve to do well.”


Well, we had a great time in Scotland and would recommend anyone intending to do the same thing, hiring with you, it was a pleasure.


We had an  extremely pleasant experience renting from Richard at Motor Home Escapes in June 2016. The camper van was in extremely good  and clean condition and we thoroughly enjoyed touring around Scotland.  We mostly “wild camped” at some absolutely amazing locations. The service we received was excellent. Richard is a very good source of information and he was readily available to us with our numerous questions and a handy reply. I would highly recommend Motor Home Escapes.


We had two weeks in the Lewis Motorhome in August 2016. Richard was very helpful and the Motorhome was clean and tidy. We had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the freedom of being able to move from place to place. We had no problems at all and would definitely recommend Motorhome Escapes.


That was a great hollidays. The motohome are perfect and Richard is always available and helplfull.


Perfecto! Gran servicio, un alquiler de verdadero lujo, todo muy cuidado, y una atención personalizada de la que quedamos muy satisfechos. 100% recomendable!


From beginning to end, Richard was a pleasure to deal with. Helpful, informative and thorough. Our Motorhome was in excellent condition and we trundled happily through Scotland on major and (very!) minor roads for a week with no issues at all. Our two kids loved the space and the ability to pull over for a wee or a snack when needed! We would highly recommend Motorhome Escapes and hope to journey with them again soon.


My partner and I had the pleasure of using Motorhome Escapes during early September 2016 to tour around the north of Scotland for two weeks. When first researching this trip we contacted a number of motorhome hire companies, and from the very start Richard’s high level of customer service and passion for his company stood out. He was extremely accommodating and helpful in the lead up to the trip, including inviting us for a look around the motorhome before booking. He also explained all the extras that would help make our trip and easy and enjoyable as possible, including a google map of hundreds of wild-camping sites we could access throughout the journey. When we arrived to pick up the motorhome it was fitted out to the highest standard, and extremely clean and tidy. Unlike a lot of other companies we looked at, a lot of items such as a BBQ and camping chairs were included in the price rather than having to pay extra, thus bumping up the cost. He really took the time to explain how everything worked, go through any questions we had, and gave us lots of useful tips before we were on our way. Throughout the two week trip Richard was just a phone call away if there were any issues. When we had one minor problem with the van he was extremely helpful talking us through the problem, and we were soon back on the road. The van itself soon felt like home, helped by its comfortable furnishings and the fact that we had everything we could possibly need. It was quite heartbreaking to hand it back at the end of the trip! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Motorhome Escapes to anyone looking for a comfortable and easy experience, and we will definitely be using them again.


We hired a motorhome for 10 days in september 2016. It was the first time with left hand traffic and driving such a big car. Richard gave us good instructions, the rear view camera and the to do list ‘before you drive’ were very helpful. The car was in a good condition and very clean. We found out that motorhomedrivers are greeting each other, this was funny. The landscape is amazing and the people are friendly, especially the owner from the Linwater campsite and Dany from the supermarket in Thurso. We had a great time and would definitely hire from Richard again!


It was the first time which we rent a motorhouse and as been an amazing experience, motorhome escape gave us all the comfort we were looking for, Richard is a loovely person, very kind and ready to help anytime. Motorhouse escape thumb up. thank you.


Just had a wonderful 7 days touring the west of Scotland in a superb motorhome. Very comfy and warm. Thanks to Richard for being so responsive to my questions the first couple of days. I’d definitely give them my business again.


We hired a Swift ‘Lewis’ 6 berth motorhome from Richard for a half-term week tour of Scotland for our family of six (four kids aged 12 and under). From first contact all the way through to the end of the trip, Richard couldn’t have been more helpful. It turns out not many motorhomes have six seatbelts, despite having six berths in them – a trap to watch out for if you’re assuming you can. Richard sorted this out for us and we picked the van up from him on a Sunday afternoon. We went up to Edinburgh via train which was easy (although delayed by 30 mins). It’s about a 25 minute cab ride (about £30) to the motorhome escapes depot from central Edinburgh. We had a thorough briefing from Richard on the features of the van, how everything works and what to watch out for – things that can be broken easily by kids! The van itself was like new – very clean and low mileage. It was easy to drive, once you get used to its length, and we had a great week driving mostly on the west coast. The weather was mostly dry (but the heating worked a treat regardless) and I’d recommend Scotland in the late Autumn as the colours of the trees are amazing and there were very few midges around to spoil being out and about. Next time we hire a motorhome in Scotland, we wouldn’t think about using anyone other than Richard and the Motorhome Escapes team.

Wir waren erstmals in Schottland und fühlten uns wunderbar aufgehoben im-mit aller neusten Technik ausgestatteten- Wohnmobil von Richard. Er ist ein kompetenter, hilfsbereiter, persönlich bezogener und zuvorkommender Vermieter. Besonders hilfreich waren die Wildcamping- Tips im Garmin. Wir kamen so an traumhafte und einsame Übernachtungsplätze . Absolute Empfehlung!! Wir freuen uns schon auf ein nächstes Mal!


Wir haben von der Crew vor Ort eine gute und verständliche Einführung in das Wohnmobil erhalten. Man nahm sich Zeit für uns und obwohl wir uns anfänglich schwer taten, da es unsere erste Reise mit einem Wohnmobil war, gab man gerne auf alle Fragen und Unsicherheiten auskunft und gab uns umfangreiches Reisematerial mit auf den Weg. Auch weitere hilfe, hätten wir sie benötigt, stand jederzeit telefonisch zur Verfügung. Das Wohnmobil war sehr gepflegt und vollgetankt, so das wir gleich durchstarten konnten. Wir hatten eine tolle Reise.


We take a road-trip with one of the real good motorhomes from `Motorhome Escapes`.

The take from the motorhome was very easy and the crew from `Motorhome Escapes` was very friendly.

We got a lot of instruction and tips for the first kilometres.

It was our first holiday with a motorhome and we have had a plan for this journey; the North Coust 500.

We only could spend 8 nights in the motorhome and so Richard, our teacher, gave us another, better and much easier rout-example.

This one was much better for the days we drive. Thank you, Richard!

At least, the Highlands were a great experience, with such a colourful nature and cooking wherever we could,

and sleeping wherever we would.

A real unforgettable road trip!

We had a great trip in one of Richard’s motorhomes. He helped us out at short notice after we had a problem elsewhere. Two of us hired one of the six berth vehicles which was very spacious for the two of us and meant that we stayed comfortable, warm and dry during our trip. It was easy to drive and look after which is all we had to do and it was SO much more comfortable than camping!!!!! Would highly recommend.


A very nice experience! We decided to visit Scotland and especially the Highlands with a motorhome (RV / motor-home); and Richard Smith was able to bring us everything we needed. A vehicle like new, with all the options and services, child seat, GPS, and above all, most important for us, sincere communication based on top-class human qualities! Richard Smith offers you good equipment, a sense of ideal service, and friendly communication. Thanks to Richard. Our next stay in Scotland will be with Motorhome Escapes!!!


We hired a Lewis for a week touring Scotland – our first experience of a motorhome. As a family of fur this was a very spacious fit, and we liked that we did not need to make up or put away beds at all, as we used the over cabin bed and bunks. The vehicle was well equipped, very clean and comfortable, and easier to drive than we had expected. The service from Richard was second to none, both at the pick up and drop off, and on the couple of occasions we needed to call with questions through the week. We’d throroughly recommend Motorhome Escapes to anyone.


Fabulous holiday in Scotland hiring a motorhome from Richard! I couldn’t recommend Richard and Motorhome Escapes highly enough! The motorhome was fantastic. Richard was a true gentleman to deal with. It was our first time renting a motorhome but we are definitely hooked. We will be back – hopefully longer than a week next time and we will be using Motorhome Escapes without a doubt. It was easy dealing with Richard. All emails were dealt with efficiently. No problems with money and having deposit refunded. All Richard asks is that you look after the motorhome – not a problem I think and not a big ask. They are easy to look after and clean!! Best holiday myself and hubby have had in years. We totally loved the outdoors and the freedom travelling in a motorhome gives. Go for it – you will love all them mountains, lakes, wildlife, food, etc etc!!


We rent a motorhome for two weeks in Scotland with Motorhome Escapes and it was the best motorhome we had sofar (our fifth motorhome holiday). Richard was very helpful and had everything prepared as he described in emails in advance. The holiday went smooth and we were happy to see him again on our last day. I would definetly recommend Motorhome Escapes to anyone who wants to do a road-trip in Scotland!


My experience with Motorhome Escapes has been nothing but positive. Richard has been absolutely brilliant and an absolute pleasure to do business with. Communication throughout the whole process has been impeccable and he has always had our experiences at the forefront of his mind. I would definitely hire from him again.


Great motorhome, very comfortable for four adults. Richard was extremely helpful in every way and everything was stress free and easy. We got a bus from the centre of Edinburgh out to the pick up point, there is a stop very close by. The van was very clean, adequately stocked with crockery and pans etc although a teapot and Cafetière would have been perfect! Excellent handover and “pre-flight checklist” provided to make sure everything was secure before we set off each day. We toured the Highlands and Islands, unfortunately didn’t have great weather but still had a good time. We wild camped a few nights and used campsites for hookup power and water/showers etc. Lots of information about campsites online if you have signal which can be very patchy in the Highlands! Campsites usually have wifi. The motorhome is very easy to drive, even on the single track roads which have lots of passing places. Linwater campsite on the last night was excellent and got the best showers of the week vote!


We hired a motorhome for almost three weeks with our three kids aged 9,12 and 14 and we all made the most of it. We discovered amazing spots and landscapes especially thanks to the indications given on satnav. Richard was keen on answering our questions throughout. We definitely recommend to hire with Richard!


It was our first time doing this kind of experience. And It was just fantastic. We know before coming to Scotland that we will like the country but we weren’t sure about the motorhome experience. But Richard was really helpful. Everything was described and agreed to in advance. So when we come we don’t have to pay anything else except the caution. The motorhome is really spacious and well design and easy to have in hand. We hire a Lewis and it was perfect for four adults. Richard took time to answer our questions before we arrived by email and in a really fast way and when we take the motorhome he explain us everything. So we just have no problems and gave us the feeling to be in safe hands with him, and can contact him if we had any problems. That’s really helpful because it make us more confident and not alone in a new country if we had problems. So we will definitely recommend you to family and friends if they want to hire a motorhome in Scotland. Thank you again.


Todo rápido, muchas facilidades y un trato encantador. Las Motorhommes, son muy nuevas y con pocos kilómetros. Muy recomendable. Translatteed as … “All fast, impeccable service and gracious hospitality. The Motorhommes , are very new and few kilometers. highly recommended”


Fantastic experience, it was our first time doing anything like this and really enjoyed it with our 2 kids. The motorhome itself is so clean, comfortable and everything you need is in there! Would definitely recommend to anyone considering it! I can highly recommend renting a motorhome by Motorhome Escape, all is well explained, ready and good working. We had an incident with a broken mirror and we got all the help we needed from Richard to claim on an excess insurance company.


2nd Year we have taken a van from Motorhome Escapes and we will be booking soon for 2017. Van was low mileage, immaculately clean and everything was in working order. Price is very reasonable if you compare with any alternative when you consider against a series of B&B etc. Hassle couldn’t be less once you are loaded up. Tremendous value!


This summer we had a brilliant, leisurely holiday touring the Hebrides in a motorhome provided by Motorhome Escapes. As novices, we appreciated Richard’s clear advice and reassurance – we only made one phone call for help! – and the motorhome itself was very comfortable for our 19 day trip. We would highly recommend Motorhome Escapes for the quality of the vehicle and the excellent customer service.


We really enjoyed our week in Scotland and the Motorhome was as comfortable as I had expected it to be. Your new Motorhomes were the reason I chose your company and they lived up to my expectations!


Dear Richard,

Thank you for the money transfer – I received it on Friday. For us it was also a pleasure to meet you and enjoyed travelling through Scotland in one of your Motorhomes. We appreciate the time you took to answer our questions and the alternative payment method you offered us as well as the travel tips you gave us in advance. This personal communication is not usual these days and something special that gave us the feeling to be in safe hands with you. We will definitely recommend you to family & friends if somebody wants to tour through Scotland in a motorhome.

Thank you & best regards,



I booked our Holiday over email. Richard was very helpfull making sure I got all the papers and formalities in order for our Journey. We are from Denmark. Everything concerning booking went without any hazzle at all. Very easy. When we arrived, the motorhome was ready for us, and everything we needed to know, was clearly shown and instructed before taking off on our wildcamp journey. The motorhome was easy to operate. We took a taxi from Edinburgh Airport forth and back Again. I can highly recommend renting a motorhome fra Motorhome Escape, all is well explained and we felt pampered and taken good care of throughout our vacation. Cheers, Anja


We greatly enjoyed renting our 6-berth motorhome from Richard for a 2 week adventure in Scotland in June of 2016. Everything was as described and agreed to in advance. It was the perfect size and setup for a family of four. I would definitely recommend renting from Richard and will rent from him when our travels take us back to Scotland again.


Fantastic experience, it was our first time doing anything like this and really enjoyed it with our 2 young boys aged 5 and 2. Its great having the freedom to go wherever you desire and the motorhome itself is so clean, comfortable and just like a home from home, everything you need is in there! Would definitely recommend to anyone considering it!


Congrats Richard and many thanks for your attention and dedication! We hired a brand new motorhome (3.000 miles only) in perfect conditions and enjoyed our 7 day holiday in this lovely and beautiful “country”! It was our first experience in motorhome, driving on the left side, with such a long vehicle, manual shift by the way, but thanks to Richard one hour lesson and his “check list” all was under control from the very first moment. We hired the 6 people motorhome which was perfect for our family, 3 kids, who enjoyed a lot with the TV, beds, chairs, and all countryside and camping site. Scotland is a great place to relax and enjoy nature, very well set up for motorhome and families! We are looking to be back again and for sure we will repeat with Richard! All the best Joseph Manel


Excellent loueur! Très bonne adresse! Location d’une semaine qui s’est très bien passée. Camping cars en très bon état. Très grande disponibilité et flexibilité de la part de Richard, de très bons conseils également pour préparer son itinéraire. Pas de surprises désagréables au retour du camping car. Très fiable et très sympathique!

Translation : “Excellent landlord! Very good place ! Rent a week that went very well . Mobile homes in very good condition. High availability and flexibility on the part of Richard , also very good advice to prepare your route. No unpleasant surprises at the return of camper. Very reliable and very friendly!”


I hired the “Lewis” with 2 friends for about 10 days at the end of May 2016. The trip was just amazing. Richard is really friendly and fast to answer every question we had before or during the trip. He also gave us very good advice that we followed regarding the itinerary, the motorhome or else. The motorhome itself was pretty new – maybe too much so we had to be extra careful about scratches sometimes 🙂 – but clean and comfy. Some roads were kinda technical to drive into as pretty small but all in all it remains not difficult to manage. I would definitively recommend Motorhome Escapes.


We had a ten-day trip around Scotland with a Motorhome Escape vehicle. It was a brand new one, very comfortable. Richard is an excellent guest, got plenty advices were to start our trip, where to wild camp. Our next trip in Scotland will be a Motorhome rented from Richard.


We had a really wonderful time in Scotland driving through the Highlands with the beautiful motorhome we rented from Motorhome Escapes. The communication upfront was clear and fast and Richard put a lot of effort in making our trip as good as possible by suggesting different routes with great places to visit. Also the satnav with a lot of wild camp places was superb. The motorhome (Lewis) was fully equipped and in a perfect state with very little milage. It is a big vehicle but easy to drive and it felt like a real home for our family of 6 (with 4 children between 7 and 15yrs old). I would definitely recommend Motorhome Escapes to anyone and we will surely rent from Richard again the next time we visit Scotland!


Without doubt this is one of the finest holidays my wife and I have ever had. Home from home would not be an understatement. The vehicles are absolutely immaculate and really looks the part. Considering this was our first holiday in a motorhome, we were provided with a thorough explanation and demonstration of all the systems required to make the holiday as hassle free as possible. The support offered by Richard did not end there and we were given contact details if help or advice was required during our holiday. The personal touch which is generally missing in modern day holiday packages was in sharp contrast here. Richard was also in attendance on our return to ensure a smooth handover, without doubt this was a relaxing no hassle holiday provided by a family friendly company.. We will be back next year!!

Just got back from a fantastic week motorhoming around the Highlands in one of Richards Motorhomes.

We were complete Motorhome noobs and like most people a bit apprehensive about the size of the thing, where to park up, etc.
There was no need to worry though, Richard is a Motorhome guru and guided us through everything that we needed to know. He answered all the questions we had leading up to the holiday so that by the time we picked up the motorhome it felt like we were borrowing it from a friend and a lot of the fear had gone.

The home we hired was the 23 foot long Lewis and was surprisingly easy to drive and maneuverer. The roads are all good in Scotland and hired motorhomes are pretty common so people are more considerate than you might expect. We went to the far North where the roads are single track with passing places but even there the roads are good quality, the passing places are about every 100m or so and everyone is very courteous – often oncoming vehicles will also stop and both of you will be in passing places flashing each other on!

The motorhome was brand new and very well equipped and Richard spent some time when we picked it up going through how everything works and the things to look out for (Don’t forget to push the orange button on the toilet cartridge!).

We also hired the satnav with the pre-loaded wild camping sites which I would recommend. There are hundreds of sites and they pop up as little Ws on the satnav as you drive along. Much easier than using the map.

We will definitely be motorhoming again and have no hesitation in recommending Motorhome Escapes.

Don’t forget the Motorhome Wave!

Jim Telfer


Excellent Service Highly Recommended

Hired a Swift Escape for 8 days to tour the highlands, Motorhome was clean and ready on arrival from the airport and we were only its third hirer. Excellent holiday touring ( very easy to drive – you get used to larger size vehicle after a day or day and half).

Richard was very easy and efficient to deal with both in booking and collecting and returning the Motorhome, very friendly and easy to get on with. His location is well tucked away but using post code and his instructions all was fine.

HIGHLY recommend using Motorhome Escapes – will do again ourselves if we are back in Scotland !

If you are wary – GO FOR IT. Richard will solve all questions and you will have a great holiday and driving the larger vehicle will be no problem either.

John Gardiner


We hire the Motorhome on may 2016, the experience was fantastic, Richard, the owner helps in all the process, he shares a map with the points you can camp and the Motorhome was delivered clean and with all the things you can need to have a nice holidays! I recommend a lot.

Cristina Monmany


Hi Richard. Thanks for lending us your motor home! Great service and fabulous holiday (although the record temperature the following week in Skye was a bit of a punch in the gut!) Some photos as promised. Hope to see you soon.

To explore what a motorhome might offer for our family we made the decision to hire one from Motorhome Escapes for a few days back in April of this year, me, my wife and our 3 kids. From our initial contact over the phone to the moment we handed the keys back, Richard at Motorhome Escapes was extremely helpful and genuinely keen to offer advice and guidance to help us make the most of our hire. We had an absolutely fabulous time and will most definitely seek to hire from Motorhome Escapes again later in the year without hesitation.


Motorhome Escapes is a human sized company offering you the same services as the bigger ones PLUS all the little personalized advice and help that are really welcomed when renting such a vehicle. Contact Richard and he will do the best to make your motorhome experience in Scotland a great moment (brand new vans, wild spots GPS map, etc).


It was fantastic ! Richard and his very nice motorhome made our visit to the Highland a delightfull journey The motorhome was perfect and had all the commodities for our family of 4. Nice tips and wild camps from his website. And an always attendfull Richard… a nice no stress experience. We loved it ! The Van Aken family from Brussels


Thank you soon great experience of hiring your motorhome which are kept in mint condition nearly new. Hope to see you in their future.


As a family of 3, we hired the swift 6 berth for 5 days to take it up into the Highlands of Scotland for a 24hr mountain bike event. The motorhome was excellent……..everything we needed for a great and successful weekend, on and off the bike. This was our first experience with a motorhome and after the service from Richard@ Motorhome Escapes definitely wont be our last, looking forward to our next adventure!!!


5 star experience. 5 star experience. We rented a 6 berth motorhome for the week. The motorhome itself was immaculate and very functional for a family with 3 small children. Richard provided a comprehensive overview and provided help and ideas for our route. Thoroughly enjoyed our week and will be doing it again next season. We would highly recommend Motorhome Escapes to anyone.

Thanks Richard for the rental. The motorhome was perfect and was the ideal base for our New Year Northern Lights family adventure! We’ll be sure to rent from you again. Cheers Robin & family


Hi Richard,

We were very fortunate to find Motorhome Escapes and Richard the local representative. Motorhome Escapes is near the Edinburgh Airport and the train and bus stations. We found that emailing was the best way to communicate since there was an eight hour time difference between Oregon in the USA and Scotland. Richard was very punctual in responding to our emails and we were able to handle the majority of the paperwork in this manner. Richard also suggested an easy way to submit deposits and payment without showing up with a briefcase filled with pounds.

We were pleased with the walkabout and tutorial that Richard gave us upon arriving.  He explained all the details about the motor home and recommended a few extras such as Wifi and GPS to make our trip go more smoothly. He truly wants his clients to enjoy a hassle free vacation.  The motor home was very clean and well cared for both inside and out and well equipped with kitchen utensils for those who plan to cook along the route as we did.   He also included a great list of Camping and Caravanning Club sites and suggested routes to take while touring.  Many of the established camping sites were very clean and welcoming.

When we returned, Richard was there on time and ready to help us unload and turn in the motor home. He did a thorough inspection, gave us the clear to go sign,  and refunded our security deposit.  We would highly recommend using Motorhome Escapes for your next vacation.  Richard makes sure that before, during, and after your tour, you are informed and aware of all aspects of your travel adventures.  Kudos to Richard!!

Kathleen Grimes, Oregon, USA


Hi Richard,

Just want to let you know that the transfer came through today as you indicated. Thank you very much. We had a great experience working with you and our motor home was so clean and in great mechanical condition.  Thanks for making our vacation so enjoyable !

Sincerely yours,

Kate Grimes


Yet another happy customer  we’ve had a great October holiday in Scotland with one of moterhomeescapes cars – new fine moterhomes, super service, no problems – they definetly have our recommendation. Attached is our favorite image of the moterhome – seen from our hike on the beautiful Isle of Skye. Mette and Bo Lindgaard


I recently hired a motorhome from Motorhome Escapes. From start to finish this company was a joy to deal with. Richard was available at any time and was quick to respond to any queries. I often get frustrated in dealing with large companies providing service that lacks a personal touch. In contrast, Motorhome Escapes was a breath of fresh air. The motorhomes themselves were top notch. The process of hiring and picking up was straightforward. Insurance was easily organised. We had a whale of a time driving around Mull and Skye in a week the whole family enjoyed. My wife wasn’t sure about taking a trip in a motorhome (being used to hotels and hairdryers), but I’m glad to say she also had a great time. I would heartily recommend Richard and Motorhome Escapes to anyone looking for a wee adventure!

Calan Mathieson


Hi Richard, Thanks again, an excellent service. Van was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. I was amazed how well it drove and performed on all the routes we took and how manoeuvrable it was.


Kevin & Karen Jones


Would just like to thank Richard for a fantastic week with his campervan we had a great time in Skye and Applecross! My 2 boys had a ball too! We will be back ! Vicky McGregor


Our Aussie family hired a motorhome for an amazing 9 nights travelling around Scotland! What a fantastic trip! Thank you so much Motorhome Escapes for your excellent service!!

Sean Haddow and Jane Isler


Thanks for a lovely holiday! We had a great adventure visiting parts of Scotland that we might never otherwise have seen! The Motorhome was immaculate, easy to use and Richard’s customer service was first class. I highly recommend Motorhome Escapes for a family holiday! The kids loved the bunk beds and all the beds were really comfortable.


Thank you Richard for an excellent camper van – you saved our holiday at very short notice having been let down by another company. The 6 berth van was very well equipped and very comfortable, and despite by initial fears over the size, it was easy to drive. Will definitely hire from you next time we want to tour Scotland! Best regards Colin and Denise


We had a fantastic family trip to Scotland last week. Thanks Richard Smith for your hotorhome. Its definitely make our holidays easier. Hope to see you again.


Hi Richard, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to have the most wonderful vacation in Scotland. The motorhome had everything we needed, the maps and the list of wild-camping spots were very useful, and Richard was available on the phone to help us with any questions we had along the way. Even driving this mammoth on the wrong side of the road was not as horrifying as I’ve expected 🙂

We are a family of five, with three teenagers. The caravan was big enough and the independence it gave us was great. We had a 9-days tour up to Orkney and down the west coast and it was excellent. Waking up in a forest park, or on the ocean shore was just priceless.

It was a great experience! Thank you Richard

Lior Levin and family from Israel


Fabulous week. Lovely motor home thank you Richard. Janet and Richard Parsons


Dear Richard,

Thank you also for the excellent hire of the motorhome last week. The service was first class, and the motorhome lived fully up to its expectations and gave is a stunning holiday in the West of Scotland. We loved the independence it provided and the ability to linger where we wanted, rather than be forced to stay in one place all the time.

With many thanks,

Chris Dodd


Hi Richard, A big thank you from Family White – we had the best week touring around Skye and Perthshire. The motorhome was brilliant and your thorough explanation of workings/buttons/stuff made it all the easier to start the holiday feeling like we knew what we were doing, even as touring novices. We’re especially grateful that you went the extra lengths to sort the scorching sunshine out for us – truly above and beyond 🙂 . As the famous line goes, ‘we’ll be back …’


Hi Richard,We thought we would send you a note as a big thanks following our holiday in one of your 6 berth motorhomes. Your assistance could not have been better…

– prior to the holiday with route planning advice…

– comprehensive introduction to the vehicle on the day of collection…

– & reassurance during the week when we needed to contact you…

Despite being almost 7m long (including the bike rack), the vehicle was very easy to drive and proved more economical than we had planned also having plenty of power when required.

Even along the many single track roads we encountered, there were plenty of passing places so no worries.

Being a new vehicle, from the drivers’ seat, kitchen, bathroom to the beds the whole layout was easy to live with.

Touring Scotland; to the East, North and West coasts and many places in between, the scenery was stunning, the weather was kind and we were fortunate to see quite a bit of wildlife.

We have never done anything like this before and found the motorhome was a great way to see Scotland and do exactly what we wanted, where we wanted and when we wanted.

We had a great week and we would recommend Motorhome Escapes to anyone.

I’m sure we will be back.

Best wishes & thanks again

Jonathan, Marie & the Girls

Your explanations were perfect and the motorhome was great : new, clean , comfortable, with everything we needed for a great week in total autonomy in the nature. Just as we like it ! Spectacular trip. It’s an unforgettable experience every family should do at least once in their lifetime …great memories ! We highly recommend Richard’s motorhomes !!!! The Holtz de Diego family from Avignon, France


Hi Richard, Thank you for waiting for us and for organizing an overnight place on a caravan park because of our unplanned late arrival. That was really very obliging.  Your motorhome was very clean and everything was o.k. and in a good condition. We enjoyed our trip through Scotland with your motorhome.

If we decide to come back to Scotland for a new trip, we will certainly hire a motorhome from your company again.
Best wishes
Family Tiefenböck


I can’t tell you how amazing these motor homes are. We’ve just had a great week touring the west of Scotland with our two children. We are complete novices at this but the advice and support Richard gave us in advance of the trip and during the week was very much appreciated. The van itself was spotless inside and out and very comfortable. Our children have said that they will be saving their pocket money for another trip – that says it all! We’ll be talking about this holiday for a very long time!

Hello Richard.  Well, we’ve now returned home to Auckland after enjoying the rest of our holiday in the UK and Malaysia and I just wanted to send a big thanks to you.  Our time in the motorhome was one of the highlights of our trip and I’m sure we’ll look back on it fondly for years to come. The motorhome itself was, as you promised, shiny and new, and you were very responsive to any questions we had before we confirmed the booking.  With so many rental companies to choose from, your customer service stood out above the rest, and that’s why we chose Motorhome Escapes!

All the best, Kyle and family


We are just back from a tour of Skye, Harris and Lewis in a new 2015 Motorhome from Motorhome Escapes. Richard explained everything very well before we left and the quality of service was excellent. We were a bit nervous at first but had a really great holiday and everything in the motorhome worked perfectly well – the motorhome was pristine when we arrived which is always a good sign. I’d thoroughly recommend Motorhome Escapes particularly as some of the comments regarding other hire companies were not so good. Euan McKie


We are a family with 6 person (2 adult, 4 children). We rent a wonderful 6-berth-motorhome in May at Motorhome Escapes. The motorhome was only one Year in use. We got a nearly new, absolutely clean motorhome in perfect technical condition. Perfect and competent service by Richard Smith. We have had a wonderful trip through Scotland and the West-Coast and a wunderful time without any problems. We come back. Many thanks Richard. Gerald Graf


We had our first holiday in a Motorhome in May 2015 – 10 days in a brand new vehicle – easy to drive, very comfortable and with everything you need for a fabulous break in Scotland.

Richard was very helpful with all of the pre-holiday planning and organisation – making it easy for us to plan our break. We will certainly be using Motorhome Escapes again.

After returning from our first ever week in a motorhome touring Scotland we just wanted to thank you for a great week. The brand new motorhome was of a high standard. Cooking was easy and enjoyable in the small but well equipped kitchen. ! The wild camping was above all expectations but hiring the satnav with the pre-loaded wild camps was the best advice. It gave us great confidence and helped our journey planning. We never felt nervous about where to stop and camped in some stunning locations. So do not leave Edinburgh without one! Thank you again see you next year!

What a lovely holiday this autumn! We wanted to enjoy a flexible itinerary and the hassle free delivery of this from Richard really achieved this. Some wild camping courtesy of the supplied marked map, and help for all our uncertainties as newbie motorhomes meant we had a home away from home in some of the most fantastic locations. Thanks Richard! …. Peter McLean


Hi Richard.Just a note to say a huge thank you for your help last week. Not being hardened campers we really didn’t know exactly what to expect however the quality of the Motorhome itself really was exceptional.  This coupled with the warmth of welcome from you and your wife, the courtesy calls to make sure all was going well, and your flexibility at the end of the trip, all contributed to making this one of the best and hassle free weeks holiday we have ever had.  We have even converted my son who it’s fair to say enjoys the home comforts!

Thanks again.  I’m certain we will be back for more in the years ahead.

We had this wonderful experience last month. Motorhomes from are in tip top condition and almost new. Richard was very helpful and informative. Most extras were given to us for free where with other companies you have to pay for. Great Holiday, thankyou Richard !!!


We did our first tritp to Scotland June 2014, since this has been a grand wish for a long time. We started with the pick up of our Motorhome near Edinburgh Airport. After a good instruction of all the functionalities, heating etc from Richard we started our journey direction north. The first night on a wild campground has been great and it became better every day. We’ve seen great places & landscapes during our travel all over Scotland. Lowlands, Highlands, Skye, National Parks, Castles (of course) and Cities. The Motorhome has a good size for traveling, even when the Scotish streets become narrow sometimes. Also parking in the Cities is possible. The scotish campgrounds are good but we prefered wild camping. With the supplied GPS/SatNav system with pre-programmed wildcamp places from Richard, you’ll find the most amazing places to stay with amazing views on great landscapes. Allover it’s been a great experience and we will come back!!!


AMAZING trip throughout Scotland thanks to Richard and his comfortable motorhome. Attention to details, outstanding service and high quality rental made all the difference (in addition to great weather!). Xavier Rancoule and family


Dear Richard, thank you very very much once again for making our holiday in Scotland a truly exceptional one!


Hired a 6 berth motorhome June 2014, it was equipped with everything you need. Excellent service/advice from Richard before we set off. We had a great holiday exploring Scotland. Would definitely hire from Motorhome Escapes again.


We have no reservations about recommending Motorhome Escapes to anyone, great service from yourself, booking was straightforward and the Motorhome itself was first class!

We rented a 6 berth motorhome from Motorhome Escapes and all the family really enjoy the trip, especially the kids.The camping car was in a very good shape, comfortable and very easy to use. After a quick presentation of all the functionalities by Richard, we’ve made a one week loop from Edinburgh, loch Ness, Skye, loch Lomond and back to Edinburgh, using either wild sites suggested by Richard or private camping sites. It’s a great way to discover Scotland which is a beautifull country 🙂 Sure, we’ll come back!

We had a wonderful holiday in spring 2014 traveling around scotland with the 6-berth motorhome. The motorhome was fully equipped, very clean and had all the comfort you need. We especially like to thank you Richard for your support during our stay. From the hotel you booked and paid in advance for us after we missed our flight from Germany over the pick-up service from the airport to all the small advices you gave us for the stay. Our next stay in Scotland will definetly be in one of your motorhomes and in the meantime we will recommend you to those asking and those who don’t 🙂 Christian Wittrien


Thanks so much, the van was great! We had the best trip, if you ever need a review for your website I’ll gladly provide one. I’ll will highly recommend your business. Best regards Carla


Just writing to thank you so much for such a sensational holiday in the Highlands, and even though it was February, we had an absolute blast!


Just a quick note to say thank you for your beautiful, well equipped, spotless vehicle – we had an amazing family holiday and will recommend you to all our friends and family.


Great holiday! Loved our Scottish home for the week


Hi Richard, just wanted to say a huge thankyou for being so helpful for our fabulous holiday. The vans were really great, and we, the whole family, Nicky and I had a complete blast. Thanks so much for the recommendations on places to see and stay! We will defo be back again 🙂 All the best


…we were really impressed with the motorhome – very clean, great condition, and with all the mod cons! Having the TV and DVD player was a life saver with the kids!


…Scotland was beautiful and we so enjoyed being able to see it at our own pace. The campervan was superb, and you and Hilary were so helpful with your advice on where to go and camp. See you next year!


Dear Richard and Hilary, just wanted to write and say thanks again for being so friendly and helpful. Sorry, we broke one of your windows, and thankyou for being so understanding and reasonable about it!

We had a thoroughly enjoyable time on our huge road trip up around Skye, Isle of Mull, and the west coast of Scotland and will be recommending you to all our friends down under. We hope to be back too. Take care,


Hi richard, just a quick note to say thanks and that we will definitely be back next year. The kids, Alan and me really enjoyed ourselves and we were really impressed with the space in the vans – I don’t know what we had been worrying about – bags of room!

Thanks for all the top tips and for booking us on the Beecraigs campsite that first night. The kids will not shut up about the holiday, so we hope to see you next year! Bye for now,


In September 2013, we booked a six berth motorhome from motorhomeescapes and were absolutely pleased with the quality and service provided. The motorhome was in perfect shape and sported near-luxury features like a DVB TV. And while we had been given detailed introduction on pick-up, the company’s owner Richard Smith offered and provided on the phone assistance when we failed to remember or look up things properly. All of this made for a great and memorable holiday!

On our next travel to Scotland we will certainly book again with and will recommend it wholeheartedly in the meantime.
