Situated in the northern Highlands of Scotland, is a unique experience like no other. Built and occupied during World War II, the HMS Owl Air Control Tower was used by the Fleet Air Arm and after almost eight decades later, the industrial space has seen a new lease on life. Undergoing a five-year renovation, the space is now open for business – that being an Airbnb.
Found among the Scottish countryside stands the four-storey structure, enclosed in a black facade and despite its transformation, the building still houses historical building features. Original Crittall steel windows still sit within the exposed brick walls while unfinished supporting beams remain spread throughout its open-plan rooms. Complementing its post-war history, a collection of unique and antique furnishings scatter around the Airbnb for added charm.
According to the listing, the entire top floor is rented out to guests with a hot breakfast also offered. Close-by the owners also rent out a restored Nissen, providing yet another unique space.
