In 2015, photographer Charles Peterson said Kurt Cobain wanted to move to Scotland before he died.

He recalled, “I remember late one evening I was working with Kurt for a magazine in Manhattan.

“He was just sitting, talking about life with me, then out of the blue he said, ‘I want to buy a castle in Scotland’. Kurt really did want to make his home there.”

“It was maybe a pipe-dream but he wanted to make it a reality. He was serious when he said it. He was enamoured with Scotland and the music scene in Glasgow especially.”

He told the Daily Record newspaper: “I ran into him about a week before his death, right around the time he was supposed to be playing in Glasgow.

“There was no way he looked like he could be playing a gig in Scotland.”

“People were shocked by how he died – I automatically assumed it was a drug overdose.”

“That seemed like it would have just been par for the course. But it was devastating.”

“There won’t be another figure like Kurt – the world has changed and he’s the last music mystery.”

Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain are in Scotland for Thanksgiving. Cobain had Irish and Scottish ancestry.
