Client information

Highland Titles offers a unique opportunity for you to buy a plot of land on their estate in the Highlands of Scotland. They sell plots ranging in size from 1 square foot to 1000 square foot, and thanks to Scottish Landowner law, ownership of this estate legally allows you, or someone you love, to use the courtesy title of Laird, Lord or Lady. Many of our customers have updated their driving licence, credit cards and such like to reflect their new status.
