TWO Shetland houses are set to feature in an upcoming episode of the BBC TV show Scotland’s Home of the Year.
Evrabister in Kergord and Da Hen Run in Burra will be shown on the programme on 12 May.
The TV show aims to find Scotland’s ‘home of the year’, with interior designer Anna Campbell-Jones, architect Michael Angus and lifestyle blogger Kate Spiers travelling around the country.
Evrabister is a renovated croft house in the heart of Kergord. Home to Julie and Gary, the house comes with a rather romantic backstory.
Julie came to view the property when Gary decided to sell the house. It appears they hit it off, with the pair becoming partners and ending up living together in the house.
Da Hen Run is a one-and-a-half storey, Scandinavian style wooden frame house which is home to Wendy and Maurice Inkster. It offers impressive views over the water.
The episode will also feature a home in Orkney.
The team behind the programme, meanwhile, is looking for homes of all types from all over Scotland to apply to take part in the next series.
Filming will begin in June 2021 and broadcast on BBC Scotland in 2022.
Applications to take part in series four of Scotland’s Home Of The Year should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include contact details, a brief description of the home and a few pictures. Only primary residences can apply to take part.
