Scotland’s storied history might not be the first thing you think of when you hear “WWII,” but the country’s focus on aero operations during the period was surprisingly astute. During the era of wartime flight and aeronautical ingenuity, it wasn’t uncommon to stumble upon piecemeal runways, flight lines, and control towers — but now, one Scottish family has decided to turn a once-forgotten air traffic control space into a rentable home — boasting more character than any modern day offering.

The four-story HMS Owl Air Control Tower was erected within the Scottish Highlands, surrounded by a flat, barren landscape that exudes an aura of derelict descent. A matte black exterior gives the five-year renovation an undeniably dark feel, coupled with Crittall steel windows and an exposed brick facade to give the space a hint of modernity. From the top floor of the tower, guests can experience immaculate views of the surrounding area, complete with antique furniture and a king-size bed that are as comforting as they are aesthetically unique. Between rustic charm and undeniable WWII heritage, the HMS Owl Air Control Tower is the perfect getaway for anyone who’s in the market for a once-in-a-lifetime experience — and for only $99 a night on Airbnb, this might just be your next big motivator for a remarkable European escape.
