Join the celebrities who have homes in Scotland

Gerard Butler

Paisley Buddy Gerard Butler was reported to have bought a swanky pad on the south side of Glasgow in 2015.

The luxury apartment, near Giffnock, provides the Hollywood A-lister with a crash pad when he returns home to visit friends and family.

Butler spends most of the year split between Los Angeles and Australia but comes back to his old stomping ground to keep the homesickness at bay. Well that’s what he tells people. We think it’s to stock up on haggis fritters and Granny Ina’s tablet.

Fancy a single-bedroom flat here? Expect to pay from around £65,000 to £165,000.

Author J K Rowling lived in Edinburgh when she famously wrote the first Harry Potter books in a cafe.

His daughter Stella, the fashion designer, came back to the area to tie the knot in 2003.

The peninsula has properties that range from to one-bedroomed flats in Campbeltown for just £16,000 to country houses with offers over £1,200,000.
