Headline: Quirky Airship Capsule On The Scottish Coast Is Perfect For Stargazing

Caption: An airship-inspired aluminium capsule located in the Scottish Highlands is the perfect stay for stargazers. Available via Airbnb for £150 per night, the AirShip 002 comes complete with kaleidoscopic windows as well as multiple portholes so guests can almost feel like they are sleeping outdoors. Designed by Roderick James Architects, the aluminium-clad AirShip 002 is located on four acres of expansive greenery near Drimnin in the Scottish Highlands. Inside the surprisingly spacious capsule, wood panelling creates a warm interior, which is enhanced by an abundance of natural light. The kitchen is open plan with all of the amenities needed to create a home-cooked meal. To open up space throughout the tiny structure, space-saving techniques, such as a fold-out table, keep the living area uncluttered. Located just past the kitchen area, the bedroom features a four-poster queen bed and a pair of portholes over the bed allows guests to gaze up at the stars as they drift off to sleep. Outside a serene seating area with a wood-burning stove looks out over the mountains and sea to the west. On the opposite side, a large writing desk faces the beautiful Sound of Mull and a wooden deck with outdoor seating on the other side of the pod offers additional views of the incredible surroundings. One guest, Debbie, said of the capsule: 'We knew the airship would be amazing from the Airbnb page but we didn’t expect it to be even better than that! What a beautifully designed, thoughtful and spacious place in a stunning location.'
