RAF observation tower turned into a home is for sale for £350,000

A bomb-proof RAF observation tower with 360-degree views which is now a four-bedroom house in a pretty medieval Scottish fishing village has gone on sale for £350,000.

The 45ft tall building was designed to withstand the blast from a stray 2,000lb bomb.

Fragments from these kind of bombs can spread up to 1,000 feet from the target zone, so the whole complex is fitted with bomb-proof windows that have remained in place today.


Built in 1994, Rosehearty Tower was sold off in 2002 and was converted into a home after the RAF ended bombing practice there.

The tower has a mirrored ground-floor dressing room and a spiral staircase leading up to a bedroom and a bathroom on each of the next two floors.

The single floor annexe includes a living room with a kitchen area, a morning room and the two other bedrooms.
