This is a bit of a random one. :) How would you or a loved one like to become a real laird or lady? For £16.95 you could have a genuine title. Would be excellent present for those that have everything and you will own land, granted it is only a square foot.

Imagine the scene - a dinner party where everyone is banging on about the size of their mortgage, and how much money they've made, and how much they have made of property investments. And then the question comes round to you.
And you pause (for effect, of course) before agreeing property is a good investment while explaining that that's no the reason why you decided to invest in land on a large estate in Scotland. Their mouths open. You explain that you now are officially a Laird (lord) or lady (insert appropriate title here) an how you also intend to help protect the environment by ensuring that your land is never developed, your greater social responsibility as a landowner, and all that..After the bread rolls have stopped raining down on your head you can fill in some of the details.
Tell them that your plot of the Glencairn estate is a genuine, legally-owned parcel of land on the massive Glencairn estate, which will help to ensure that the estate is never broken up or built on, so there's a good cause behind the fun too. You'll receive a personalised title deed inscribed with your name and title, your personal plot number and a plot map, plus maps, pictures and local information, a hardback book of Scottish history, and more, all in a wonderful presentation pack.
You'll have taken an elegant step up the social ladder by becoming a Laird or Lady of Glencairn, and the fun can continue as you enjoy the looks on faces of receptionists and check-in staff as they offer you upgrades and take you to the front of queues, or show you to special VIP fitting rooms in Harrods (as if you can afford their stuff anyway!).
All you need is a kilt and some language training and you can head north to inspect the territories.They love absentee English landowners up there!
Scottish land owners are legally entitled to use the title of Laird. When registered you will own a token piece of land in Scotland and will be a Laird.
You will then be sent an official personalised land ownership certificate along with a 'Proof of Title' card. This card allows you entry into the Lairds Retreat. This is 10 acres of beautiful land in Argyll which is owned by South Angus Survival. It is located by the banks of Loch Riddon which is viewed by many as one of Scotland's most beautiful lochs. The Laird/Lady and their party are free to camp, hike and fish on the land - full details of the retreat are enclosed in the gift box.
A map showing you the location of your plot is enclosed in your gift box. In order to preserve the natural state of the land there are no signs directing you to the plot neither are there any facilities on site. We suggest that you visit the Lairds Retreat rather that your plot.
