During World War II, the HMS Owl Air Control Tower served as a home base for pilots landing their planes in the Scottish countryside. Today, it’s a fancy hotel.
Welcome to 2019.
After five years of renovations, the former air traffic control tower is now for rent, starting at $128 per night. Like you might expect, the restored building has a militaristic charm.
Neutral rugs lay atop the rough concrete floors; black paint covers the exposed brick walls; reclaimed furniture and oversized task lamps are scattered about; and bottles of fancy booze line the shelves of an old medicine cabinet.
It’s a perfect balance of modern and curated vintage that makes you feel like you were somehow transported into a very well-designed version of the past.
Though its vintage look is admittedly part artifice, the owners did keep the building’s most striking architectural feature: the large gridded windows that give a view of the vast, flat landscape.
