Anyone Know bonos New years whereabouts?

My mate used to work in security at Inverness Airport. We were in the pub last night, and he tells me that Bono was up in the area again yesterday. I thought he was on the wind up, but then he went on to say along the lines of....he was with that supermodel helena whatever her name is. So I sed Helena Christiansen...and he sed...thats the one AND her mother. Now...he is not a u2 fan at all.....for him to come out with that, (knowing Bono is good friends with Helena) made me think he was serious. According to my mate, Bono is frequently up here, arrives in private jet, and doesnt have to go thro the normal checkouts, and never stops to eat the grub laid on.
So...does anyone know.....was Bono spotted taking in the new year anywhere?

Bono's New Year

Just came across this little tidbit. No pics though.


Bono enjoys a Highland new year
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."

From this article: Scots Tourism Ready To Buck Trend With A Bumper 2009 (from The Herald )

Oops, didn't see this before I posted the thread with the news story about it. If someone could merge them that would be great.

Looks like a burry picture to me.

No offense, but theres no way in hell you can tell what tartan that is going from that picture. Or if its tartan/a kilt at all.

Sorry, I still see no evidence to suggest what type it is except for the fact that its red.

Could by all means be Stewart tartan with it being a more popular design, but I dont really think you can say for certain on those pictures.

Well, Ali is a Stewart isn't she. Anyway, I think it's interesting that Bono seemed to want to stop at a regular place and spend time with everyday folks before heading on to the VIP resort. Seems like his way of balancing the scales a little. A dose of normality before the grandeur.

Forgot about Ali, that certainly does sway it somewhat.

Sorry, I can't see a tartan anywhere in those pictures. According to the tartan finder at House of Tartan: Tartan Fabrics and Products by Mail Order, the Royal Stewart tartan is mostly red. The Ancient Stewart tartan has a lot of dark blue and dark green, but a little red.

Sure would be worth it to see a picture of Bono in a kilt, though. Those sturdy little legs!
