1. The Beermoth, Highland
Put out to grass in the heathery wilds of Cairngorms National Park, the Beermoth is a 1950s fire truck converted into a cosy love nest for two, with a wood-burning stove and wrought-iron Victorian double bed. Parked up on the 200-acre Inshriach estate, it has drop-down side panels that open to reveal wide mountain views from bed and fireside armchairs. Its upcycled horsebox turned sauna and riverside hot tub are just the job after mountain walks. There is no electricity, reading is by tealight only; dogs welcome.
