Now, this is just really cool.
Have you ever watched some renaissance show or period piece... let's say Outlander, and thought to yourself "I'd make a damn good Lord of..."?
Or maybe you're just riding the high of the Royal Wedding the other week and have mad envy that a former American actor is now a Duchess in England.
Well, now you too can dub yourself a royal title if you so choose!
Right now, you can become a Lord, or Lady, or Laird of Glencoe, Scottland - and it's not nearly as complicated as it might initially sound.
Before I get to that if you don't know where Glencoe, Scotland is, you might remember it from the outside scenes of the Harry Potter films, which were shot there. As well as 2 of the 3 Highlander movies, of course!
Glencoe, Scotland is a gorgeous area in the world with rolling green hills and mountain valleys, it really is one of the more breathtaking landscapes on the other side of the pond.
Now, back to the important stuff! If you want to become a Lord, or Lady of Glencoe, Scotland, all you need to do is help support the land by purchasing a plot at the Highland Titles Nature Reserve.
Yes, it really is that simple! You can buy a small chunk of the land, and boom - you are now a Lord of Glencoe. It may sound like this is amping you up to spend hundreds upon hundreds of dollars - but that is not at all the case!
In fact, plots of land start at just $60! That is a whole chunk of land in Scotland, the right to dub yourself as royalty and support a nature reserve in one of the most beautiful regions of the world.
Just $60 will get you a small, 1-square-foot plot of the reserve. But if you crave a bigger, more badass title - you can opt to spend a bit more and receive more land.
To me, it just makes sense to spend a little more and receive a bigger chunk of the land. If you wanna go really ham with it, the $1000 option looks pretty sweet!
Personally, I think if I was to spend this money I would go for the $240 package - because that pond looks wicked cute.
All the plots of land above $60 would give you a plot of land in both Glencoe and Lochaber, Scotland - so that's a double win!
You also have the right to visit your land anytime you want, with a free meet-and-greet welcome wagon and some swag sent to you from Highland Titles including a certificate of authenticity and land plot ID card. Some of the bigger packages include other fun swag, too.
So - what are you waiting for? This is super exciting!
For the cost of an average night out at a Montreal club (maybe even less), you can become a Lord of Glencoe and/or Lochaber in Scotland... and you'd be supporting a good cause while at it!
Maybe this isn't for you, but I imagine there are a few loved ones in your lives that this would make a perfect gift for! You can also pass down your plot of land to your future children, and their children, and so on!
This is something I will for sure be doing. From now on, call me Lord Riley James of Glencoe Woods and Lochaber.
