IN PICTURES: Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich tours Scottish islands

Abramovich has visited Bute and Arran and is believed to be heading to Islay next

You are one of the richest men on planet earth, you have a fortune of over $9billion and your private jets and yachts can take you on holiday wherever in the world you want to go.

So, where do you go to relax?

The answer, according to Roman Abramovich, appears to be small islands around Scotland.

Chelsea’s billionaire owner jumped off his yacht to cycle around Bute at the end of last week and now he is enjoying some time on Arran.

The Russian oil and metals tycoon was spotted on a casual stroll around Arran with his family dog, a corgi, while his stunning 536ft yacht, the Eclipse was moored off Lochranza.

Holidaymaker David Robertson, who spotted the billionaire on Bute, commented: “Roman was cycling round the island at a nice casual pace, just like anyone else enjoying their holidays. He was just like the rest of us… apart from he had a nice big Mercedes following him around the island – I didn’t have one of those!”

Abramovich is believed to have flown by private jet to Glasgow airport late last week before travelling in a private helicopter 30 miles to his yacht in the Firth of Clyde.

Kilnaughton Bay on the Isle of Islay is believed to be the next planned stop on Abramovich’s tour of the Scottish islands.
