BBC Scotland's Home of the Year heads to the West Coast - see inside the homes

BBC Scotland's Home of the Year will be taking a trip to the west coast of Scotland in a week, in order to find yet another finalist to add to the list of homes already chosen.

So far, Lorne Cottage in Fort William, The Ostro Passive House in Kippen, The Pastel House in Orkney, Firestation House in Hawick, New Tolsta in Lewis, Victorian Terrace in Edinburgh and Pentland View near Glasgow have made the finals for Scotland's Home of the Year.

But, who will join them in the remaining places from The West?

Read more about the three homes up for the award, and check out our photo story below for a more eagle-eyed view into the properties.

A new home in Kilmacolm, a converted farmhouse near East Kilbride and a renovated terrace near Helensburgh compete as judges Anna Campbell Jones, Michael Angus and Kate Spiers decide on the finalist from the West.

First up is Knockbuckle House, a recently built five-bedroom detached property in Kilmalcolm, home to Graeme and Hazel and their children Harry and Scarlett.

Flowing round the south facing garden, the ground floor of the house features a lounge, dining kitchen and an office.

On the first floor, there’s a master bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bathroom and four more bedrooms, two of which have a linked mezzanine play area.

There’s even an outbuilding, complete with home gym, hot tub and sauna.

Designed by Graeme and Hazel who are both architects, the couple wanted to create a modern arts and crafts home which has subtle nods towards Rennie MacIntosh design.

Next in line for the judge’s consideration is a converted farmhouse just south of East Kilbride. Craigend Farm is the family home to Kate and Kenny and their three children – Alex, Jack and Frankie.

A converted farm house dating from the late 1800s, the five-bedroomed home has been developed over time and now houses a lounge, games room and gym, kitchen diner with adjoining social space and a bar.

There’s also a mezzanine level with piano lounge area.

The final contender from The West is the Rhu Boathouse in Helensburgh. Originally built around 150 years ago to service naval officer’s lodgings, the Rhu Boathouse is now home to Patricia and Patrick and their dog, Alva.

Upstairs in the renovated terrace, there are two bedrooms, a study and a bathroom whilst the ground floor has a living room and kitchen diner.

Patricia and Patrick favour antiques and upcycling and their home is full of items with sentimental value.

Returning the property to its original period style, the couple’s colour schemes are muted yet warm and welcoming.

You can watch The West's episode of BBC Scotland's Home of the Year on Monday, May 23 at 8:30pm on BBC One.
