Och Aye It's Hogmanay and Bono in a Kilt!

It seems like Bono and family went to the best place you can to celebrate the coming of the New Year - Scotland. Bono in a kilt - pity there are no photos with the article. Below is an article taken from The Herald.

PS Blurry pix here from the Scottish Sun website.

Bono, lead singer of rock band U2, celebrated Hogmanay in the Highlands. The Irish singer, wife Ali and Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, along with family and friends, flew into Scotland for a New Year break at Ben Alder Lodge, the 26,000-acre Inverness-shire estate owned by one of the world's richest men, Swiss financier Urs Schwarzenbach.

Bono's group arrived at Inverness Airport on Monday and were taken to the Dalwhinnie estate in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes minibus.

The rock star, real name Paul Hewson, was seen wearing a red kilt with Miss Christensen in the bar at the Silverfjord Hotel in nearby Kingussie.

Gillian Welsh, owner of the hotel, said it had taken a few minutes to realise who the superstar guests were. She said: "We couldn't believe we had such famous people in the bar. But they chatted with some of the locals, while Bono enjoyed a couple of pints of Guinness."


  1. OMG!! need. photos. from. waist.down...

    (fainting at thought....)

  2. LOL - are you really sure you want to see his legs?!

  3.'re probably right (dammit) i'm still getting over those pix of him jogging a few years back. bonolegs i think they call them.

  4. i think it would be important to see the legs if only to satisfy my curiosity as to what footwear he chose to wear with the kilt.

  5. Yeah I'd love to see what his choice was - spats over his platforms would be a sight!
