About Us

Historic Estates Ltd is a company registered in Scotland, Reg. no. SC372643, created for the purpose of preserving our common European heritage.

To further this objective the organisation purchased land on the renowned and illustrious Blackwood Estate in Lanarkshire in 2010. Loch Wood contains ancient native woodland and was at the time under threat of commercial development, such as commercial timber felling and housing developments. Pursuant to the purchase by Historic Estates Ltd, and later the involvement of the Blackwood Estate Community Association, the woodland will now be protected for the preservation and enjoyment of future generations.

The Blackwood venture has thus been successful, but it was only the beginning. Historic Estates Ltd are now in the process of acquiring another historic property in peril to save it for the future.

Without our supporters around the world and their original contributions to this venture we would not have achieved what we have done. Among other things, ‘Laird of Blackwood’ has inspired a fantasy novel trilogy, a beer brand in California and a furniture company in France and we are eternally grateful for the support we have received and continue to receive.
