STV Productions is seeking homeowners in Oban to uncover treasures.

The company is searching for people who are clearing out their homes in and around Oban to take part in an exciting new television series, which is being made for Discovery-owned channel, Really, and STV.

Fronted by expert auctioneer, Angus Ashworth, the producers of this heart warming show would love to chat to people who are downsizing or need to clear out a property. Or perhaps a collection no longer brings the joy it once did – so now’s the time to de-clutter and make some space.

Every clearance can uncover treasures, such as Persian rugs gathering dust in the garage, war medals and wedding crystal forgotten in the loft, even fossils and rare collectables.

Those taking part will then be put in touch with Ryedale Auctioneers where they can decide if they want to go ahead with auction – and they might make a bit of cash along the way.

Every episode will tell stories and celebrate those hidden gems in what is guaranteed to be a surprising and uplifting journey of discovery.

Presenter and Yorkshire auctioneer Angus Ashworth, said: ‘Clearing houses is something of a passion but equally I can’t wait to meet new people and hear their stories as we explore the contents of the houses, hopefully unearthing some hidden gems.

‘It’s amazing what treasures can be found in among the clutter or hiding in an attic.  If they’re there, we’ll find them.

‘It’s a privilege to be invited into people’s homes and I’m sure there are lots of people out there who need help with a clearance – so please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you and have a chat.’
