Become a Laird or Lady…of a castle in the Scottish Highlands!
Scottish landowners are legally entitled to use the title Laird. Female Lairds can choose to be a Laird or a Lady, the generally-accepted female equivalent. Upon registering this gift you will own a genuine piece of land in the grounds of Dunans Castle in Scotland. You will thus become a Laird or Lady!
You will be sent an official personalised land ownership certificate and a Proof of Title card. You will then be eligible for all sorts of Laird-based perks:
You and a guest will be entitled to a free tour of Dunans. Visit and locate your plot of land! Bookings must be made in advance.
Your gift will help in the restoration of Dunans Castle and grounds.
Free, lifetime access to Dunans including Dunans Bridge and the tallest tree in the UK!
Fishing rights to the Alt a Chaol Ghleann river within the grounds.
Use of Dunans’ insignia, access to exclusive Laird and Lady stationery and your own Laird or Lady email address.
Access to a Gift Republic-only area of the Dunans Lairds’ website where you will find exclusive merchandise and more.
No more Mr or Mrs – become a Laird or Lady!

After registration you will receive:
How do I register my gift?
You can register your gift online or by post. We recommend that you register online as this speeds up the time it takes for you to receive your certificate and Proof of Title card. Full instructions can be found in your registration booklet.
How long do I have to register my gift?
You need to register your gift before the ‘register by’ date on your gift registration booklet. We recommend that you register your gift as soon as possible.
How long does it take for me to receive my certificate and Proof of Title card?
These will be dispatched within 28 days receipt of your registration details. Occasionally, factors outside of Gift Republic’s control may affect delivery times.
Do I have to use my new title?
No. You can continue to use your original title. However, you will be entitled to use ‘Laird’ or ‘Lady’ instead should you wish to do so!
Can I call myself a Lord?
No. The title ‘Lord’ is a British aristocratic title. In no way does this gift allow you to call yourself a Lord.
Can I visit my plot?
Yes. We urge you to visit your land! By registering this gift, you and a guest (adult or child) will be entitled to one complimentary tour of Dunans Castle and its grounds. Details on how to get to Dunans will be sent along with your certificate and Proof of Title card.
There is one scheduled tour per month for Gift Republic’s Lairds and Ladies though tours may be possible at other times. Please contact Dunans to pre-book your tour before visiting to avoid disappointment. Contact details will be sent to you with your certificate and Proof of Title card.
Upon registration you will be provided with the precise co-ordinates of your plot of land. With a tape measure or equivalent, this will then enable you to locate your exact plot within the grounds! Laird plots enjoy a wonderful view of the castle and are just a stone’s throw from the Alt a Chaol Ghleann river.
Can my land and title be inherited?
Yes. Provided that Dunans Castle are informed of the changes, your title and land can be passed on.

Dunans reserves the right to alter or remove the tour without prior notice for technical, operational or other reasons and the Proof of Title card is neither refundable nor exchangeable.

I bought this at the beginning of November, as a Christmas present for my partner. After receiving the initial parcel and reading the instructions, I felt it would be nicer to complete the registration too, and was very happy to discover this was simple to do on someone else's behalf. The final package has now arrived containing all that was promised. My partner has only to decide what date he wants to visit 'his land' and check the date is available. A great fun way to raise funds. I love it and can't wait to see his face on Christmas morning!
Extremely fast service will be ordering more
What an original and appealing wedding present , particularly as in this case where the recipients are on the other side of the Atlantic. Easy to transport and a fabulous link with the Old Country. Looks so good for such minimal outlay. Would also suit that pretentious and difficult one in the secret santa task this christmas. Definitely worth a look.
I bought this for a man who has .... almost everything. They loved it. It helps to maintain the renovation of a scottish castle Which you can visit free and see the plot of land that you bought. It brings a giggle to the person you bought it for. Fun fab and for the person who has almost everything.
This is a very unique gift..bought for my sister in law, who hails from Scotland, I wanted her to own a piece of Scotland.. She was delighted and was overwhelmed by this wonderful gift. It was easy to register and she soon became Lady Morna. Brilliant and very unexpected gift.
Excellent service would definitely recommend to friends
This was a gift and the recipient loved it. It was delivered really quick and good value. Would definitely recommend.
Bought for secret santa as it was a good price . very quick delivery.
I purchased several of these as gifts. They arrived on time and well packed, I am very happy with the service and my purchases.
Quick delivery, no damage to presentation box. Delivered to republic of Ireland. Lovely presentation. Larger than picture advertised. Approx the size of a placemat (pic advertised looks the size of a coaster) Really fun present. Can't wait for Christmas.
I was looking for a gift for someone who is hard to please. She is absolutely delighted with this unique package and is going with her husband to take advantage of the free ticket for two. Thank you very much for solving my problem.
great little gimmick present for my dad who loves Scotland......
Got as a 50th present for my sister in law. Came really quickly nicely boxed. She loved it.
Brought this as a gift and the recipients were over the moon with it, as Scots themselves they were delighted with the concept. Item arrived on time and exactly as described, well packaged at a fabulous price :-)
Got this as a fathers day gift, now the whole family want one!!!
The item that I ordered came very promptly and was exactly as described. Completely happy. Thank you
Bought this for my Dad's 80th birthday as a bit of a laugh as he always fancied himself a Scottish Laird! He thought it was brilliant, although he's going to be a bit of a pain as he now demands we bow and curtsey in his presence!
Bought this Become a Laird or Lady Gift Box for my wife and she was absolutely over the moon. She has no intention of actually using the title (suits me as it was bought for the novelty value) however she does tend to use the title for booking restaurants - with a surprising amount of success. She loves telling people that I bought her a Ladyship - and the comments I've had have always been full of praise. Heartily recommended for that special 'Lady' in your life - this seems to come with bonus brownie points. It's well worth it and recommended.
This Become a Laird or Lady Gift Box is a fantastic item and is great value for money. I bought this as a gift to make someone a 'Lady'.
This Become a Laird or Lady Gift Box is a really special and off the wall kind of gift purchase. With this gift you can buy your own square foot of Scotland! You'll even get a 'title' with it, it works on two levels, in fact 3 as you are granted rights to go visit and camp for free. I bought 2, one for my dad and one for my daughter and they both really liked it. An excellent price considering how much these can cost if you do a web search! This is well recommended as a quick, far out present, or even just a self indulgent purchase for yourself.
