After weeks of searching, Scotland's Home of the Year has finally been announced.
Season 5 of the BBC show concluded on Monday where the show narrowed down the contenders to just six which ranged from Edwardian mansions in Glasgow, to croft houses in the Highlands.
Here we take a look at the final six contenders and the ultimate winner of Scotland's Home of the Year 2023.
Contemporary 'box' home in Aberdeenshire
Snowdrop House, a contemporary self build just outside St Cyrus in Aberdeenshire, was the winner of the North East and the Northern Isles category.
Spanning two floors, Snowdrop House showcases a box-like design with views of the surrounding landscape and has a range of features, such as a games room, a state-of-the-art kitchen and a suspended fireplace in the living room, offering fireplace lighting ideas to others.
Sandstone home inspired by William Morris
The Old Manse in Auchterarder, Perthshire was the winner of the Central category.
This sandstone-period property, dating back to the mid-19th century, was a renovation job for couple Kelly and Michel.
They restored the period property, drawing inspiration from 19th-century British textile designer William Morris with all five bedrooms, three bathrooms and large garden inspired by his work. Although the cinema room was a nice add-on.
16th-century dilapidated home revamped with recycled items
The South section's winner is the Manor House is a renovation on the outskirts of Peebles.
Thought to date back to the 16th century, Manor House is now home to Megan, husband Mike and their children, Caleb and Emilia.
When the couple first came across the property it was completely dilapidated with holes in the roof and damp throughout. Nestled in the countryside, the home is full of salvaged items including an old science bench as a kitchen island.
Croft house renovation in Skye
Lochbay, a historic croft house, made it to the final winning the Highlands and Islands category.
The over 300-year old house is home to Denise and Bob and has stone walls over four feet thick in parts.
The house was the only home in the competition to be a croft house and beat off fierce competition, such as that from a Swiss style ski chalet, but ultimately won over the judges due to its uniqueness and extensive work done to make the home hospitable.
Edwardian renovation of three former townhouses
Kirklee Mansion, an Edwardian renovation, was the winner of the West section in a tightly fought contest.
The mansion in Glasgow’s West End, which was originally three separate townhouses, just about beat off competition from a French Rococo styled Victorian villa with judges being wowed by its traditional features.
The property is now split to form single level apartments with Kirklee Mansion sitting on the first floor, but despite being renovated the home has kept many of its traditional, Edwardian features.
And the winner is... the converted train station!
The winner of Scotland's Home of the Year happens to be the first property the show introduced the Old Train House in Edinburgh.
This was the winner of the East category way back in Episode one. A truly unique home, the abandoned train station with graffiti on its walls is home to Christina, her husband Ben.
The building remained empty for a decade until the couple transformed it into a family home that was fashioned with the homeowners' eclectic tastes and their commitment to sustainability.
The three levels of the house are adorned with second-hand furnishings. The property also pays homage to its history, with graffiti on the exterior garden walls to give it a distinctive style.
