A 1960s bungalow on the outskirts of Glasgow has been named Scotland’s Home of the Year.

Anna McClelland and Harry Kinloch’s quirky family home won the 2024 series after stiff competition from properties across the country.

The winning house was revealed in the finale of the popular BBC Scotland series, filmed at Glasgow’s House For An Art Lover.

A new, seventh series of the show will begin filming locations around Scotland from July. Applications are open until July 5.

The 1960s bungalow, home to Anna, Harry and their children Lexie, 11 and Marley, nine, is a twice-extended family home in Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire.

The couple – both Glasgow School of Art graduates – use their home 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.

Anna said: “It’s very flattering to be named Scotland’s Home of the Year - especially considering some of the other homes involved.

“Our home is distinctive and unique because it’s like the inside of our heads and that’s also what makes it homely to us…but maybe not for lots of other people.

“It’s been a really positive experience taking part in SHOTY. Apart from anything else, entering the show meant Harry had to finally finish doing DIY…”

The SHOTY judges – interior designers Anna Campbell-Jones and Banjo Beale and architect Danny Campbell – were blown away by the property.

Anna said: “This electrically eclectic creative home exemplifies what it means to truly make your home unique to you.

“It was fun and playful - an absolute dream family home to spark children’s imaginations and keep that same feeling alive in any adult who has the good fortune to experience it first-hand.

“It felt like being inside the very souls of the people who lived there, rarely have I had that sense so strongly in any home.”

Banjo said it was “unlike any home I have ever stepped foot in” and added: “The 1960s Bungalow was a work of art and a living canvas for its creative owners. From the duct tape art to a smiling loo, it didn’t take itself too seriously. It is a home for big and little kids alike.”

Danny said: “It was consistent, it was creative and it was clever – very memorable.”
