Beautiful Stone Cow Shed Turned Cozy Cottage! 

The Cairngorms is a stunning area of Scotland, and if you go to visit you might want to stay in this “cooshed” (cow shed) turned into a delightful cottage for two. While the original stone walls remain, the rest of the cottage looks nothing like a home for Highland cows, but rather a modern, well-equipped tiny home.

You enter into the open-concept living and dining area which includes a full kitchen, comfortable couch and ottoman, and a dining space. The bathroom has a walk-in shower stall with a skylight, and you take a ladder to the loft bedroom that houses a double bed. There’s a private patio outdoors to enjoy if the rain holds off.
