In anticipation of her upcoming three sold-out gigs in Scotland, Taylor Swift has opened up about the profound and enduring connection she feels toward this enchanting country. The Love Story hitmaker, currently immersed in her worldwide Eras Tour, expressed her eagerness to return and spend a holiday in Scotland once the tour concludes.
Swift’s ties to Scotland go beyond the stage lights, stretching back to her relationship with Scots DJ Calvin Harris. The pop sensation has always held a special place in her heart for Scotland, and her upcoming visit is poised to deepen those sentimental roots. Taylor Swift’s link to Scotland extends beyond her personal relationships. During her last performance in Glasgow’s OVO Hydro eight years ago, the Pennsylvania-born singer disclosed her Scottish heritage through her parents, Scott and Andrea. Delving into her ancestry, it was revealed that the Swift family shares connections to none other than William the Lion, the historic King of Scotland.
In a candid interview with the Daily Record, Taylor shared her sentiments about Scotland, stating, “Scotland is a really special place for me – last time I was there, the crowd was amazing, and I felt like we really connected.” This heartfelt connection is not just a fleeting moment on stage; it’s a testament to the deep-seated roots and the sense of belonging she experiences in Scotland. “My dad is super proud of our Scottish heritage and told me that pretty much most of our family can be traced back to Scotland so of course it’s obviously very cool for me to get to perform there as part of the tour.” Website famouskin.com also found the House of Dunkeld is the 265th great-grandfather of Taylor.
The singer-songwriter said she also planned to take a holiday to a Scottish castle when her tour ends next December. She said: “I would love to have a vacation in a castle for a couple of nights. It might even be the perfect way to end my tour next year. The architecture is stunning and there is so much history.”
