If you want to really throw yourself into Scottish culture on your next trip to the UK by living a cozy life in a small countryside town, The Open Book on Airbnb may be the ultimate accommodation for you. You’ll be staying in Wigtown, Scotland’s official National Book Town located in the lowlands, and sleeping right above a local bookshop.
As a guest of The Open Book, you will be supported during your stay by a team of bookshop volunteers, who are there to make your vacation as comfortable as possible. The goal of The Open Book residency is to celebrate independent bookshops and welcome people from around the world to Scotland’s National Book Town. Because The Open Book is a nonprofit, the cost is surprisingly low at only $55 per night.
