Gerard Butler splashes out on Scottish home

Gerard Butler has bought a bachelor pad in Scotland.

The 'Olympus Has Fallen' actor has splashed out £582,000 on the luxurious three-bedroom property, which is located near Giffnock in south Glasgow.

The 45-year-old star - who was born just under 10 miles away in the town of Paisley - bought the apartment, which features a drawing room and private balcony, after previously confessing he missed living in the country.

He said: "I miss the people and the countryside. Scotland is such a beautiful country and I know that whenever I return and look at that it's like big therapy for me, everything relaxes, and I'm inspired and relaxed all at once."

However, sources suggest the swanky flat won't be a bachelor's paradise for long, as he is rumoured to be planning to wed his girlfriend, Morgan Brown.

The couple - who started dating last summer - are yet to confirm their engagement, but the well-known interior designer has been sporting a diamond on her ring finger since March, sparking suggestions the Hollywood star has already popped the question because he is "crazy" about her.

A source told Star Magazine: "Gerry is crazy about Morgan.

"He knew from the beginning that she was different from his past girlfriends."
