Become a Laird of Blackwood

Do you want to be able to call yourself Laird or Lord of Blackwood? It is easier than you think.

Scottish landowners have traditionally been afforded the courtesy title of Laird (Lord) or Lady, and we offer you the opportunity to buy a miniature estate in Loch Wood in Blackwood, Scotland. Included in this package is the license to use our trademarked and protected titles Laird, Lord and Lady of Blackwood.

“Laird” is often converted to “lord” internationally and our supporters may choose whether to have their documents issued with the title Laird, Lord or Lady of Blackwood.

Historic Estates Ltd was formed to protect and preserve our common European heritage. By offering the public to buy rights to souvenir plots of land on the Blackwood Estate in Scotland, we have helped ensure that this land may not be developed, and at the same time our supporters gain the opportunity to use a British feudal title with historical ties to this land.

The plots are located in Loch Wood on the Blackwood Estate, once the largest estate in Lanarkshire and the vacation home of Scotland’s great poet and national treasure Robert Burns. For centuries Lanarkshire has been the territory of kings and noblemen. Laird of Blackwood was originally an ancient Scottish feudal title, and you can find traces of this title back to the medieval ages.

You can read more about proper styling of the laird title here. Included in our lairdship portfolio is a Master Title Deed, a legal document which may be used to formally change your title in all common law countries which accept nobility titles on official ID.

As a Lord or Lady of Blackwood you will also be given the exclusive right to wear the Blackwood insignia and tartan. The insignia will look very impressive on your stationery and business cards and we also provide various aristocratic accessories with the Blackwood insignia in our webshop.

As a member of the elevated classes you may wish to take up certain Scottish lordly pursuits, such as wearing the kilt, fishing for salmon or even playing the bagpipe if the fancy takes you! And do not be surprised if your new title brings about some added perks, like plane upgrades and other preferential treatment. It’s been known to happen. The Lairdship Portfolio will also make a perfect gift for that someone special.
