Scotland’s Home of the Year 2024 winner crowned as ‘electric dream’ bungalow



An “eclectic dream home” in Dunbartonshire with a floor made from an old school gym has been named Scotland’s Home of the Year.

The Milngavie bungalow was highly praised by judges in the BBC Scotland show for its one-of-a-kind interior and unique style.

In the finale of Scotland’s Home of the Year (SHOTY), filmed at Glasgow’s House For An Art Lover, the quirky 1960s one-of-a-kind family home took the title after reaching the final along with five other properties.

A new, seventh series, of the popular property show, will begin filming locations around Scotland in July and applications are open now.

The winning property belongs to Anna McClelland and her partner Harry Kinloch who live there with their children Lexie, 11, Marley, 9, and Bob the cat.

The couple, both Glasgow School of Art graduates, use their house as an outlet for their creativity, with the property boasting clever decorating techniques and reclaimed materials including school gym hall flooring complete with colourful markers.

The SHOTY judges interior designers Anna Campbell-Jones and Banjo Beale and architect Danny Campbell crowned the winner from a shortlist of six finalists from across Scotland.

Showcasing stunning properties from Banchory to Dunblane, Moffat to Milngavie and Aviemore to Linlithgow, this year’s search boasted a variety of home styles including cosy cottages to colourful pads, period renovations to mid-century abodes.
