A hostel on wheels? Yes, you read that right! A 24-year-old boy from Edinburgh quit his job and turned a school bus into Scotland’s first hostel on wheels.

A business graduate, Angus Luff worked as a management consultant before deciding to quit to pursue his passion project, The Bonnie Camper. He got the idea after watching Expedition Happiness on Netflix. He now takes tourists on road trips through the Scottish Highlands.

“This crazy and unique idea was born out of a conversation with a friend while working at a surf camp in northern Spain. What quickly started as a discussion about owning a van for travel soon turned into converting an American school bus into a hostel on wheels,” Angus wrote in a blog post for his website.

The Bonnie Camper is a striking yellow bus that seats up to 6 people and includes essentials like a kitchen, toilets, beds and a lounging area. After facing several delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, it welcomed the first guests on board in June 2021.

The vehicle was originally a school bus that took children to school in New York. Angus bought it in 2019 and had it shipped from the US to Edinburgh.

Angus Luff, the founder of the one-of-a-kind hostel bus, organizes road trips with outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, and swimming in lakes. He drives the vehicle himself and cooks for the guests.
