AirBnB in Scotland: seven weird and wonderful holiday ideas

Our tourism industry officially reopened on Wednesday, with the Prime Minister encouraging desperate people looking for a vacation to ‘explore Scotland more’ rather than taking trips abroad.

With that in mind, we’ve thought to put together some of AirBnB’s weirdest and most beautiful announcements in Scotland, to inspire you ahead of your trip.

Whether it’s living in a futuristic ‘airship’, coming home to a hobbit hole or even a lifeboat, here are seven of the weird and wonderful AirBnB offers in Scotland:
