But Scotland on Sunday can reveal today that the 49-year-old steel tycoon is also the new laird of Aberuchill Castle Estate, a prime slice of the Perthshire Highlands that he recently bought with 6.8m of "small change".Lisin is a leading light in the exclusive group of fabulously wealthy oligarchs who made their fortunes when Russia's state-owned industries were privatised.

Aberuchill, described earlier this year as a perfect Highland retreat, is spread over 3,300 acres of heather-clad hills and grouse moor overlooking Loch Earn.

Although the castle was hit by fire a few years ago, it has been meticulously rebuilt.

Its white-turreted baronial-style elegance is now combined with the best modern comforts.

He should have no trouble paying for it, if he hasn't already.

His company, Novolipetsk, Russia's biggest steelmaker, valued at 8.7bn, will sell shares on the London Stock Exchange for the first time this week.

The sale is expected to raise more than 400m, and as Lisin owns 90% of the highly successful firm, most of it will flow directly into his pocket.

Scotland has become a popular hunting ground for wealthy Russian property investors, as they can buy trophy estates at what, to them, are bargain-basement prices compared with properties in the south-east of England.

The property benefits from private parking and a view of the bay.

It is close to local amenities and would be ideal as a second home or as a holiday let.

Spacious traditional detached cottage in a superb rural location. Additional land, buildings and riding school available by separate negotiation.

Sitting room, dining kitchen, conservatory, scullery/utility room, 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. About 1.74 acres An outstanding apartment in the popular village of Findhorn.
