Pass Out In A Scottish Fire Truck

When you think of Scottish homes it probably drums up images of countryside castles and cottages, but here's one you might not consider: a roving old-school fire truck outfitted with all the comforts of a tiny apartment. Meet The Beermoth.

Now settled in the Scottish Highlands, the 1956 Commer Q4 was actually "liberated" from a fire museum in the South of England, and retrofitted with a few amenities to make it accommodating more for R & R than snuffing out flames.

Behind the reinforced canvas walls you'll find a cozy one room cottage-like abode complete with an over-the-top high-posted Victorian double bed, tiny kitchen area with a hearth fashioned from a snooker table, and a gorgeous oak parquet floor rescued from a Tudor mansion.
