Rumours swirled this week that pop star Taylor Swift was purchasing her very own Scottish castle to be closer to the family home of her DJ boyfriend, Calvin Harris. 

She has since denied the rumour with this tweet:

Called “Tower of Lethendy,” the historic castle is nestled in the hills — just one hour’s drive from Edinburgh, Scotland, where Harris’ parents live.

Despite the fact that Taylor is not buying the castle, the publicity she’s given the $US7.2 million estate is probably music to the listing agent’s ears. 

Savills Real Estate is handling the listing. 

Dating back to the 16th Century, the Tower of Lethendy is steeped in history.
