John Travolta’s name has been linked with the purchase of a Scottish castle.
The American film star is rumoured to have viewed Lee Castle in South Lanarkshire with a mind to buying it.
There is speculation that he wants to turn the historic building into a centre for Scientology, the religion that Travolta has long supported and promoted.
The Pulp Fiction star could certainly afford it. He gets paid more than £20 million per film.
Lee Castle dates back to the 13th century and one of its Lairds was honoured for his part in in returning Robert the Bruce’s heart to Scotland.
The property boasts 14 bedrooms, a ballroom and a swimming pool. It stands in extensive grounds with three themed gardens, including a Japanese garden.
The family that currently owns the castle is understood to be marketing it in America, hoping for a private sale. If not then the castle will reportedly go up for sale on the public market next month.
