How does it all work?
Well, we sell an interesting and unusual gift that occasionally raises an eyebrow…. so how does it all work? It all comes down to two things: souvenir plots of land, and Laird, Lord and Lady titles.
A souvenir plot of land was defined in the Land Registration (Scotland) Act in 2012 as "a piece of land which, being of inconsiderable size and no practical utility, is unlikely to be wanted in isolation except for the sake of mere ownership or for sentimental reasons or commemorative purposes".
Laird is a Scottish word, meaning landowner. Lord is the English translation and Lady is the female equivalent.
Is it a stretch to say that someone with a personal right of ownership over one square foot of land in Scotland is a Laird? Of course it is! That’s the fun part of our gift. That’s why most people buy it.
Some people (with a sense of humour failure) think it's an outrageous claim to make. That’s fine with us. There is an easy solution to this problem: just don’t buy it.
Other people (bless them all) think it’s a cool gift. Those are the people we're trying to delight. After all, you can’t please everyone and it’s foolish to try.
Gifts are highly personal in nature. No one person is in a position to say whether a gift is with or without meaning for the entire world population.
For some of our customers, our gift is fun. For others, it’s romantic. For many, it’s a way of strengthening their ties with Scotland.
We can say without any doubt that this has helped us create a real feeling of community amongst our customers, tens of thousands of whom have visited their plots and met with our team on the land.
