Become a Laird or Lady Gift Box
Bestow Scottish Lordship upon your friends and relatives.
Give your friends and family the gift of Scottish Lordship. With the Become a Laird or Lady Gift Box, the lucky recipient will gain ownership of one square foot of land in Scotland.

This 16-acre tract is home to the Thomas Telford-designed Dunans Bridge, Britain's tallest tree (a 209-foot-tall Douglas Fir), and the centuries-old Dunans Castle.
In addition to a free tour for two of the castle, your purchase of the Become a Laird or Lady Gift Set also helps fund the castle's restoration and preservation.

Forget Mr, Mrs or Doctor...try a Scottish title!
If you know someone who wants to become a Scottish Laird or Lady, you're in luck! Here's what your recipient gets with the Become a Laird or Lady Gift Box:
- A one-square-foot plot of land at the Dunans Estate in Argyll, Scotland.
- With official land ownership in Scotland, the right to call yourself Laird (the snobby British equivalent of Lord) or Lady (the snobby British equivalent of Lady).
- Access to the Dunans Grounds, which is 16 acres of picturesque landscape featuring the nationally recognized Dunans Bridge (built by the famous Scottish civil engineer Thomas Telford) and home to Britain's tallest tree.

So, wait, is a piece of Scotland inside the box?
Not literally, but, yes, your purchase of the Become a Laird or Lady Gift Box includes a one-square-foot plot of land in Argyll. Your recipient need only register the land to title it in their name.
Upon registration of their land, the recipient will receive an official Land Ownership Certificate as well as a Proof of Title card. The Proof of Title confirms their land ownership in Scotland.
With land ownership comes the right to call yourself Laird or Lady. If your last name happens to be "Awesome", that means you can officially call yourself "Laird Awesome". Now that's cool.
