She said: "We have been to castles, stately homes, old foundries and more in the past. For our upcoming 16th series, we plan to film a ‘location special’ episode in Scotland. I am on the hunt for fantastic locations in Scotland to film, showing off Scotland’s rich heritage in the process. I will be looking for locations over the next month and hope to book some recces in for July."

Salvage Hunters follows Drew Pritchard as he travels around various locations in the UK and abroad on his quest to find and buy unusual objects with an interesting history.

He visits a variety of places, including prop stores, fairgrounds, beautiful country houses, railways and old mills, buying all sorts along the way – from antique furniture and lighting to old signs and 1980s' disco balls. The show is watched by over a million people in the UK and millions more worldwide.

Ms Landeg said: "This is a great opportunity to promote your house or business to a broad audience, make some money and celebrate the history and heritage of the UK. If you think you fit the bill or know somewhere that might then don’t hesitate to reach out and a member of our team will be in touch to arrange a visit.
