Cal Hunter and girlfriend Claire Segeren paid £10,000 for what they thought was a flat in Glasgow - but ended up with an 120-year-old mansion.

A couple who accidentally bought a 120-year-old derelict mansion in Dunoon instead of a flat in Glasgow have finally received the sign-off on their new home.

The couple ignored expert advice to demolish the house and decided to sustainably bring it back to life instead - despite never having renovated before and with just £10,000 in the bank. They decided to live in a caravan in the grounds while they undertook the first challenges, including clearing the huge amount of debris in the building and making the structure secure by raising the roof.

The couple are planning on turning the property into a holiday rental, with bookings to open on Sunday, July 16, and availability from mid-August this year.
