It's inevitable that the people of Dunblane are going to speculate that it's Andy, and I've always been suspicious of unnamed sources, but there again I've noticed that, when the people most likely to know whether a rumour is true or not are said to be "unavailable for comment", then about 95% of the time that means that there is at least some truth in it.
I agree. There has been plenty of opportunity to say that it's not true by now, even with the holidays.
Although when I said the article was almost all speculation, I wasn't just meaning whether or not he'd bought it, I was thinking of how they managed to pad out the feature with what he might
do with it.
The detail from The Scotsman that there is an application for a licence suggests the intention is to return it to hotel use. It doesn't seem to be the right sort of place, or quite accessible enough for any serious tennis centre, but I could see a couple of tennis courts being attractive, and some investment to make it appeal more to golf tourists (driving range, putting practice area) might be viable. It seems as if the previous owners struggled to make it work, so I suppose some changes are likely.
