Moving out of awful motel, touring Hebridean island (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

emotional

Here is my best explanation:

'moving' is the definition.

('emotional' is associated in meaning with 'moving')

'awful motel touring hebridean island' is the subsidiary indication.

'awful' is an anagram indicator.

'touring' indicates putting letters inside.

'hebridean island' becomes 'iona'.

'motel' is an anagram of 'emotl'.

'emotl' going around 'iona' is 'emotional'.

'out of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for emotional that I've seen before include "Very affected; upset", "Arousing intense feelings", "Deeply feeling", "tear-jerking", "Poignant", "Moved", "Dramatic", "Showing feelings like love or fear", "gushing" and "Thrilling".)
