    First time in a Motorhome, and the team were fantastic – very easy booking, helpful and clear about things … More we were unsure about. We hired the Iona model and it was perfect for us – great facilities and well-laid out. Great way to take a holiday! Would highly recommend Motorhome Escapes, excellent service. Will definitely be doing this again.

    October 2021. Just hired again from Motorhome escapes – shorter trip this time (only one week) but just … More as comfortable. Same comments as before about the friendly and efficient service from Richard and his crew. Everything on the van worked perfectly.Excellent service, clean, new, fully equipped motorhomes. Richard provides an outstanding and friendly service – the only way to see Scotland!

    Second booking with Richard and the team which says it all – excellent experience all round once more … More – Iona Motor home on this occasion. Again, the vehicle was immaculately presented and fully equipped. Saw us safely through a lovely week touring the Lake District and North Yorkshire.A third booking sometime in the future is guaranteed.

    Michelle went over and above to make our first Motor Home holiday as comfortable as possible .When we … More had a minor problem she actually came out to our site to rectify it the same day.She added lots of nice touches to make it home from home like a toaster and an electric kettle and the bed was freshly made up.Great service all round and would recommend.

We rented a motorhome from Motorhome Escapes for a week in July and their service was totally faultless and stress-free. They were so helpful..we changed the date a few times and they did their utmost to accomodate us. The motorhome itself was firstclass and easy to use and we had a wonderful week travelling around Scotland. They were at the end of the phone for any teething problems and handover both ways was very smooth. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough! Thank you Richard, Graham and all the team!

Our holidays was fantastics and it is also thanks to you because I think that the motorhome is excellent to visit Scotland.
Also, I want to thank for your welcome, your kindness, your professionnalism and for your very good vehicle.

A wunderfull week in a perfect motorhome. Richard was very nice and helpfull. And at the return he was very easy with checking the motorhome. We will use Motorhome Escape again when we are visiting Scotland a different time.

We hired a campervan from Motorhomes Escapes for a 4 week trip around Scotland over May and June 2018.
Richard was very helpful and professional both prior to and during our trip. He always replied promptly to our numerous emailed queries and requests before we had even left Australia
We picked up a brand new van from Richard on the day we arrived.
Even though we had a couple of minor incidents on the road over the four weeks Richard was helpful even when we called him even on a weekend.
We would highly recommend Motorhomes Escapes to anyone contemplating a self drive trip around Scotland.

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.
