After many years of piling children, dogs and kayaks into our blue Bay Window for trips throughout Scotland, we decided to share our family’s passion for classic VWs by starting Highland Hobo. Originally from Lancashire, we now live just outside Forres, about 20 miles east of Inverness. We love travelling, enjoying trips in the Highlands with friends and dogs….We started in 2012 renting out Vws campers but after 3 years and meeting many amazing people and hearing of their amazing trips and discoveries in Scotland. We decided to concentrate on the wedding side of the business from 2016 as we just weren’t getting out there!
Dave spends quality time with the vans. Jeana runs the business and runs the holiday Cottage. Jeana is also the founder of a registered charity ‘The Indigo Project-Gambia’ which is a Gambian charity offering sponsorship for children to attend school and providing health care; so visiting Gambia twice a year to keep links and deliver equipment to schools and communities. In 2017 we brought Snoopy back with us off the streets… so she is now a well travelled wee dog!
2018 we also set up a small festival in Inverness called DubNess-Gathering of the vans. It is for VW enthusiasts to get together with good music, food, beer and company. Any proceeds from the event go towards the charity.
If you have any questions not answered on this website, please do give us a call or drop us an e-mail! Our goal is to make this ‘your’ day to remember or perfect package if a chauffeur driven trip, we are very happy to welcome personal requests to see if we can help to make this your special experience.
Thanks, take care
Jeana, Dave, Elliot & Snoopy the dog.
