Become a Lord or Lady in Scotland for Less Than $50

Highland Titles Nature Reserve has offered the acknowledgement of nobility as a fundraiser to create natural reserves in Scotland. Highland Titles started in 2006 by Dr. Peter Bevis and his daughter, Laura, when they began selling plots from the family’s land to fund the planting of additional trees. They wanted to revive an area that had been used for farming and forestry for centuries.

Highland Titles Nature Reserve at Glencoe Wood

The 250-acre nature reserve was acquired in 2007 in an area that long served as a hill farming and forestry area. The success of the program led to an additional 200-acre purchase in 2014 the reserve was gifted another 10 acres in 2015, which are also being transformed into a nature reserve. With all the trees going up you might want to know how to identify trees by their leaves, here’s how.

It Really is Your Land

It can be passed down to your heirs, even though it’s a souvenir plot. You can sell it but it can’t be subdivided. You can camp on the plot if it’s 100-square-feet or larger. There are no taxes to pay on the land and you don’t need to carry insurance for the land. What the heck are your property taxes funding anyway? Find out.

You’re Not Actually Buying a Title

Highland Titles just acknowledges your right to use the title of Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe because it has trademarked that. You actually have to be a king or a queen to live in one of these gorgeous castles.
