Hello and welcome,
First, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Angus and I am a 22-year-old business graduate from Edinburgh. I am also the founder, creator and managing director of The Bonnie Camper. Throughout my life I have held a strong passion for travelling, the outdoors and meeting new people. I have been fortunate enough to visit some of the world's most amazing destinations including South America, Africa, The Middle East, Southeast Asia and more. The Bonnie Camper is my most recent and exciting project and I cannot wait to be able to share this awesome journey with you all!
Now let's talk about The Bonnie Camper. Soon to be Scotland's (and the UK's) first-ever hostel on wheels, The Bonnie Camper itself is a 1999 International Bluebird American school bus. At this moment in time the bus is on its way over from New York and is due to touch down on UK soil in roughly 2 weeks.
Over the coming months we will be working with the awesome team at Shred & Butta to transform our skoolie into a fully functioning hostel on wheels. The bus will have enough room to accommodate up to 8 guests and include all the living essentials required to be fully off-grid. This means installation of a shower, toilet, kitchen and of course beds.
This crazy and unique idea was born following a conversation with a friend while working at a surf camp in the north of Spain. What quickly started as a discussion about owning a van to travel in quickly turned into converting an American school bus into a hostel on wheels.
The bus is due to be fully converted by February 2020 and our 5-day all-inclusive adventures will begin in May 2020 offering guests the ultimate road trip experience.
Growing up and experiencing the beautiful highlands and islands of Scotland is truly a privilege. Scotland's magical landscapes and breathtaking scenery are considered some of the best in the world. The Bonnie Camper will offer an alternative, more intimate, opportunity to travel and explore the highlands and islands of Scotland while making the most amazing friends along the way. We welcome all walks of life aboard the bus and look forward to creating memories of a lifetime.
In the coming months we will be documenting the full conversion of our American school bus from start to finish and will be accepting bookings for Summer 2020 very shortly.
