When it was first announced on TV that Ciara and Arran’s home would feature on the programme, Ciara wrote: “I guess at the point @annacampbelljones uploads a picture of our living room to promote the new series of Scotland’s Home of the Year, the cat is out the bag a bit.

“We are so excited that our tiny wee hoose (and us) will feature on the first episode of series four, which starts this Monday 4th April on BBC1 @ 8:30pm!!! it is a huge honour to have been asked to go on a programme that we were such big fans of already.

“Can’t wait to see what these guys have to say @annacampbelljones @[email protected] eeeeek!!!”

And after they were crowned finalists on Monday night, Ciara excitedly posted: “Thank you thank you thank you! I cannot believe the amount of lovely comments and messages we have received since Monday night.

“And I think we can all agree that we were up against some seriously strong competition @rachel_tower_house @couthyhome the word competition doesn’t even seem fair as they really were all so different! well done again guys. Can’t believe it… finalists!”

The cottage, which dates from around 1800, is small but distinctive and has been renovated to include quirky space-saving designs and bold colour schemes from room to room.

Lorne Cottage, dating from the late 19th-century, is chocolate-box adorable, with a traditional, whitewashed stone exterior.

Adding their own personal stamp, Ciara and Arran also painted the front door a pretty lilac shade, with matching guttering and drainpipes.

The colour is shown throughout the home, all in calming pastels and monochromatic colours in order to create a peaceful atmosphere.

The Lorne Cottage ultimately beat The Tower and Loch Lann House on Monday night, advancing as a finalist.
