The Beer Moth, A Guest Room Built on an Antique Fire Truck Flatbed

The Beer Moth is a converted 1956 Fire Service truck whose flatbed has been made into a very unique guest vacation rental room. The room accommodates two, has its own wood-burning hearth and lives on the Inshriach House grounds in Inverness-shire, Scotland. You can book a stay on the Beer Moth through Canopy & Stars.

Canopy & Stars describes The Beer Moth:

Walter, the creator of the Inshriach Yurt, has truly excelled himself in his seemingly never ending quest for a renovation challenge. Having liberated this 1956 Conmer Q4 from the Manston Fire Museum in Kent and wrestled it back to Inshriach House, he has quite literally raised the roof (by a foot). Then he laid an oak parquet floor rescued from a Tudor mansion, salvaged snooker table slate to make a hearth and a fire escape for a staircase. The Beer Moth now also sports a completely over the top Victorian double bed, the door from one of the (now presumably a little drafty) cottages at the farm, and the former back wall of the doghouse. The mahogany plinth has been replaced with a wood-burner, the inexplicable stuffed squirrel has vacated the premises, and the cutting edge of unusual places to stay has been an immediate hit with its first fortunate (and slightly bemused) guests.
