Knight Frank, the estate agents who arranged the sale, would say only that Aultmore House's new owner was a "very private person".

Bob Dylan was made an honorary doctor of music at prestigious Scottish University, St Andrews in 2004.

Dylan is soon to begin a tour of Europe this year, including a show at Glasgow SECC in April.

Maybe he'll pop home for a swift cuppa and a round of golf?
