From fire truck to guest abode

From fire truck to guest abode

Ever wanted to spend the night in a fire truck?

Scotland's Inshriach House offers an idyllic countryside retreat, with the main property sleeping up to 17 people.

Should your party spill over that limit, though, there's also the option to banish guests to the garden. And no, they won't have to pitch a tent.

Not too far from the house is a 1956 fire truck that's undergone a total makeover, refurbished as guest house with a difference. Complete with kitchen and sitting room, it's retro rustic all the way.
