Top Ten Lairdship Packages

This is our top ten (well, nearly) of lairdship packages ranked by the number of stars we award in our reviews. Our classification is based on a number of factors like value for money, prestige of the title and management of the land lairds and ladies purchase.

  1. Scottish Laird: Laird of Dunans Castle and of Chaol Ghleann 4.5 stars [Quickest Email Response]
    “Dunans Castle is a castle, a ruined one, but a castle nevertheless and the owners, the Dixon-Spains, are selling lairdships as a way of helping with the restoration. As you can see from the photo left, this is an impressive ruin, and the photography on the site shows what this extraordinary building looked like before a fire gutted it … “

  2. Lochaber Highland Estates: Laird of Lochaber 4.5 stars
    “A very professional offering. By concentrating on one title, offering accommodation and discounts on country club membership, Lochaber Highland Estates immediately strikes the prospective customer as the real deal. Unlike Scottish Highland Titles (see our review here), the people behind this site have realised that as much specific information as possible is needed prior to sale … ”

  3. Sonachan Hotel: Laird of Kincavel 3.5 stars
    “If any of the lairdships reviewed on this website is to be considered the ‘Big Beast’of the industry, then Laird of Kincavel might take the laurels. Our generic search brought up the title on the moonestates.com site, which seems to be the central one, but there are many many other outlets, including play.com, thanksdarling.com  and thegiftexperience.co.uk ….”

  4. Scottish Highland Titles: Laird of Glencairn, of Glencrannog and of John O’Groats 3.5 stars
    “All three titles sold by Scottish Highland Titles come with certificates, map and directions on how to find your square foot of land, information on the Lairds’ Retreat by Loch Riddon, Argyll, and an ID card. There are options to have plots of land side-by-side for couples, and also a joint title deed… ”

  5. Scottish Land Sales: Laird of Bandrum 3 stars 
    There’s lots to like about the Scottish Land Sales site: it is straightforward, easy to navigate and looks very Scottish. Like Lochaber Highland Estates (reviewed here) Liz and Sandy Dean actually identify the parcel of land which Lairds and Ladies can buy in Fife, and they do this using aerial photography … “

  6. Instant Royalty: Laird of Jura 2 stars [No Email Response]
    This ranks above Select Titles because at least it is a Scottish Lairdship scheme!
    “When the Duke of Argyll’s Scottish residence, Inveraray Castle, is used in a header image for a site which is selling lairdships from an island some three hour’s journey from the building, alarm bells begin to ring … ”

  7. Select Titles: Laird, Lord or Lady of Tattingstone 2 stars [No Email Response]
    “We like this one. Or rather it made us chuckle. Alot. You see one of the things about the Lairds’ schemes is that they are Scottish. Well, they have to be don’t they? Laird is a Scottish term and pertinent to Scotland only. You’d’ve thought … ”

  8. Highland Heritage Services: Laird of Glenmore and of Kingsdale 1.5 stars [No Email Response]
    “Two titles from the far flung Isle of Sanday in the Orkneys from Highland Heritage Services run by Tom Canavan. We’re not sure what the unique selling point is here, aside from the fact that the plots of land are in the Orkneys –the offering is fairly standard fare … ”
