EWAN McGREGOR has made a 2,500-mile pilgrimage to one of the most famous sites in the world of architecture.

The Scots actor snapped a selfie at Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous “Falling Water” house on Sunday night.

He posted a picture of the visit on Twitter and Instagram - featuring his face nearly eclipsing the world-famous architectural landmark in the background.

His caption read: “I visited Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater today. So beautiful.”

The house - often voted America’s most iconic work of architecture - lies deep in the Pennsylvania wilderness, over 2,500 miles from McGregor’s LA home. McGregor is known to be a fan of architecture and design - having narrated an Open University short film series on the subject.

But members of his 832,000-strong Twitter following were torn over whether McGregor or the house was the greater beauty.

One user, Ghazala Khan, said: “Oh my god, your face! I’m sure the background is great too but I only see you!”

Another gushed “You get better with age!”

That was probably in reference to 44-year-old McGregor rather the 76-year-old house.
