Helicopter aficionados can sleepover in this luxury helicopter hotel in Scotland

Dr.Megha Sharma

As a helicopter aficionado, have you ever dreamt of spending a night in a helicopter offering all amenities of a luxury hotel? If yes, get ready to experience it first hand with the helicopter hotel located at Mains Farm in Stirling, Scotland.

The hotel is a Royal Navy ZA127 Sea King Helicopter converted into a hotel by Martyn and his wife Louise Steedman. Previously used for search-and-rescue operations, the helicopter was part of an online MOD auction in March 2016. The couple bought the helicopter for £7,000 (US$9,100) and transported it 320 miles by road with the help of a crane to picturesque Thornhill campsite. They spent some more dough to convert it into a luxurious holiday home.

The exterior of the helicopter has been reworked, and interiors transformed into a cozy place capable of accommodating a family of five with (two adults and three kids) in a double, triple and single bed in the trail. The converted luxurious house also features a small stainless steel kitchenette entirely painted in white and a deck area to let guests enjoy the sunset over the hills.

The walls have been painted in white and bold blue colors to bring peaceful vibes to the heli interior. Alluring lighting has also been installed to invoke romanticism and warm appeal. Taking care of guests’ comfort, the cockpit has been transformed into a lounge area offering scenic views of Scottish hill landscape. The hotel is weatherproof and well-insulated to make you feel at home in any weather conditions.

Helicopter enthusiasts can book a night for an exciting stay by paying US$150 per night.
