First look inside the real life Shrek's Swamp hidden in the Highlands

Airbnb's new listing brings Shrek's swamp to life in the Scottish Highlands.

A real life recreation of Shrek’s Swamp has been created in the Scottish Highlands.

STV was given an exclusive look inside Airbnb’s new listing which brings the Dreamworks ogre’s home to life.

Ogre enthusiasts will know the appeal of a “mud-laden”, “moss-covered” and secluded home all too well.

Now, with the help of a meticulous set designer, they can live out their onion layered dreams.

This Halloween Airbnb-verified host Donkey is “housesitting “swamp-sitting” for his best pal, Shrek and sharing the home with fans.

The location is kitted out with “nice boulders”, “beware ogre” signs, and even an outhouse 20 meters from the front door.

Inside the house fans will get to see some iconic pieces from the film including Shrek’s “martini” with an eyeball twist.

The dining space will also give you the chance to enjoy dinner by earwax candle.
