A LUCKY Perthshire woman went for a tramp in the woods and ended up meeting a Hollywood hunk.
Audrey Kerr bumped into Scots A-lister Gerard Butler when she was taking her pooch for a walk in St Fillans village near Crieff.

The Scots star, originally from Paisley, has starred in global blockbusters including 300, London has Fallen, Law Abiding Citizen and The Phantom of the Opera.
But the down to earth 47-year-old was more than happy to pose for a pic with Audrey who shared the snap with the Facebook page Scotland from the Roadside.
And Audrey, 48, was taken by surprise when she came across the Hollywood hard-man and his girlfriend.
She said: “Dino started barking at the man and I went up and had to take the dog away from him.
“He’s quite strange with men, especially people with hats on. But they started clapping him and saying how gorgeous Dino was.
“It wasn’t until he started talking that I said, ‘You’re Gerard Butler.’
“If it wasn’t for Dino barking at him they could have walked right by me and I wouldn’t have knew.
“He was really nice and really down to earth.
“They were fair taken with the dog and we stood and blethered for about five minutes.”
And Butler even revealed to Audrey that he’s not supposed to be in Scotland at the moment.
She told STV: “I know his parents stay in Comrie and I was asking him if he was staying for New Year and he said he really didn’t know and was supposed to be in America yesterday.”

The picture earned 4,000 likes within two hours of being posted.
Chuffed Audrey played down the surprise encounter, writing: “Not everyday you meet Gerard Butler.”
Hundreds of Butler fans then swamped the page with comments.
Impressed Elise Marie wrote: “Sooooo incredibly jealous.”
Sandra Douglas wanted to know the exact spot where they met, adding: “In what woods was this lol. Influx of females if you tell xx.”
Claire Kerr swooned: “Amazing. He’s so handsome. Xxx.”
Hollywood hunk Gerard Butler made the hotties' list as well
Lucy Blaylock joked: “Takes the song ‘when you go down to the woods today you’re sure for a big surprise’ to a whole new level.”
Jacqui Scott was also pressing Audrey for an exact location, begging: “OMG. You’re so, so lucky. Send me a map of how to go there please.”
Honest Kerri Brown Vice added: “I would have passed out.”
Michelle Johnston was a bit more adventurous, writing: “Books taxi to St Fillans.”
However, not everyone was smitten by the thought of an encounter with the action-movie super star.
Diarmud Griffin teased: “Gerard Butlers are native to Scotland and can be spotted in forest habitats more easily at this time of year.
“Their coats do afford them some degree of camouflage but due to hunger they have been known to hang about paths hoping for titbits from walkers.
“Approach with caution as explosions and insane terrorists are never far behind.”
We told you earlier this year how Gerard canned plans to buy a Scottish castle – in favour of kipping on his mum’s couch.
And it tops off a great 2016 for the star, who was voted into the 100 sexiest list.
