Marc Lino and his wife Lynne bought Candacraig House in Strathdon, Aberdeenshire, and its surrounding estate from the Big Yin and his wife Pamela Stephenson for almost £3 million.
The couple welcomed locals into their home at the weekend to celebrate the traditional Lonach Gathering and Games.
Mr Lino, 41, is a financier from New York who currently works in Amsterdam for management consultant firm Bain & Company.
He married his wife, who is originally from Peterhead, in 2004 and they have two young children.
Mr Lino is the co-founder of trendy Manhattan eaterie Billy's Bakery.
It is thought they plan to use the house as a retreat and also rent it out for functions and weddings.
