Page 6 confirms (as much as they’re capable of doing so) that Bob Dylan’s deal to acquire some fancy digs in Scotland was sealed over the weekend:
THE times they are a-changin’ for counter-culture hero Bob Dylan, who’s landed a grand, 15-bedroom Edwardian manor in Scotland. The British press reports Dylan, 65, and his brother, David Zimmerman, just bought a century-old mansion known as Aultmore House that sits adjacent to Cairngorms National Park. The 30-room pad includes a billiards room, cloakroom and servants’ quarters, surrounded by broad lawns and fountains. It’s not known how much Dylan paid, but it was previously available as a high-end retreat for $6,000-a-night.
And as you can see, the news gave writers a chance to incorporate Dylan song titles into their stories about the otherwise unspectacular event. Try this one: Settling down in Scotland? We always figured him to be The Wandering Kind. Okay, pretty terrible. You try.
