Travellers Staying At This Place In Scotland Take Turns Running The Bookshop Downstairs

At The Open Book, in Wigtown, Scotland, you can fulfill your dream of running a bookstore. The unique Airbnb flat costs just 57 USD a night, but it comes with a stipulation: renters also work at the bookshop on the first floor, doing everything that a regular bookshop owner might do in a regular, 40-hour work-week.

“The Open Book shop at 2 High Street, Wigtown, DG8 9HQ must be open for a recommended 40 hours a week but how that is done is totally up to you,“ reads the Airbnb description. “We encourage you to have a closing day or two, and set hours that fit your schedule. We hope you explore the area and enjoy all it has to offer.”
