Opera star Dame Kiri Te Kanawa left hotel staff stunned after asking them to store several shotguns.
Dame Kiri was on a shooting holiday at the time
The unusual request came when the New Zealand diva stopped off in Glasgow on a shooting holiday and needed somewhere to keep the weapons overnight.
Unable to help, she was taken to a nearby police station where she left the guns.
A police spokesman said: "Dame Kiri surrendered her firearms as the hotel did not have anywhere secure."
"She was on a shooting holiday and all her documents were in order.
"There was no security alert."
After leaving the weapons on Tuesday night, she picked them up the next day.
