Here’s How to Become a Lord or a Lady without Leaving the Philippines

Have you ever considered having a title outside of your home country? Perhaps you might become a lord or a lady in Scotland’s highlands? The coronavirus pandemic has canceled and postponed many travel plans; I had five overseas trips planned, three of which were already booked as early as 2019. Despite the challenges created by this virus, there are companies that are attempting to ease our cravings to travel.

Here’s How to Become a Lord or a Lady without Leaving the Philippines

One of these companies is Highland Titles, a land preserver in Glencoe Wood, Scotland. They offer the ability to buy a Scottish title. For a price, anyone can become a Scottish Lord or Lady, and this title can be handed down to their descendants – or so they say.

Last February 14, 2020, my boyfriend bought me a 10 square feet plot in Glencoe, a village in western Scotland as Valentine’s gift.

Included in the package are the following:

  • 10 square feet plot of land in Mountainview
  • You may style yourself as Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe
  • Gift Pack containing parchment certificate with embossed seal suitable for framing (personalized certificate, Master Title deed, information booklet, stickers, and plot ID card)
  • Instantly downloadable certificate
  • VIP Membership
  • Meet and Greet Service
  • Notepad and postcard
  • Highland Titles DVD
  • Free 1sqft plot of land in Glencoe Wood

Personalized Certificates

Last April 2021, he bought the couples package that includes:

  • 2 x 1 square foot plots of land in Glencoe Wood
  • Two names and two titles on your certificate. Two identical copies of the certificate are supplied.
  • Instantly downloadable certificate
  • Adjoining plots
  • 2 people may style themselves as Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe
  • Gift Pack containing parchment certificate with embossed seal suitable for framing
  • VIP Membership

Oh, hey! There’s my plot!

While the plots of land are only 1 square foot each (in most packages), I think the distinction (OK, novelty) of being a true Scottish lord or lady cannot be measured.

Should I officially change my name to ‘Lady Paula’ instead of signing off as ‘Polly’? My boyfriend dropped most of my French nicknames and has stuck with ‘My Lady’ or ‘Lady Paula’. 😁

A girl can dream, right?

DISCLAIMER: This is meant to be funny and give you a break from all of the negative stuff that’s been plaguing the world and the interwebs. Walang basagan ng trip.
