‘Fake Scots Titles’ has been set up to EXPOSE those people using FAKE Scottish Titles Such as; Chief, Baron, Laird, Lord etc. Likewise, those peddlers of Fake Scottish Titles such as; Scottish Lochaber Estates, Scottish Highland Title, Native Wood Preservation Ltd, Scottishlaird.com, Mac Sothis, Select Titles and others.
Although it is true that legally in Scotland anyone can call themselves ‘what they want’, in order to be a REAL Scottish Chief, Laird or Feudal Baron (the Baron of X is the only title in Scotland that can be Legally purchased) the titles will be recognised by The Lord Lyon of Scotland, HM The Queens Representative in Scotland and Minister of State.
You cannot become a Scottish ‘Laird’ by simply purchasing a 1 sq ft plot of Land in Scotland. If that were the case every house owners in Scotland would be a ‘Laird’, what a ridiculous concept. These peddlers of titles are just runners of money scams.
Those using ‘Lord’ in front of their name are stating they are a ‘Peer of The Realm’ (or a courtsy title of a Scottish ‘Law Lord’). No ‘Laird’ would change his title to ‘Lord” and you simply cannot purchase a Peerage Title.
Lairds are recognised by their Territorial Designations in Scotland for example; Joe Blogs of Heathcliff or Joe Blogs, Laird of Heathcliff, they would not use Laird Joe or Laird Blogs. Again these Territorial Designations are recognised by The Lord Lyon of Scotland and you can not have multiple owners of a particular designation (or Lairdship).
Scottish Clan Chiefs are also recognised by The Lord Lyon http://www.lyon-court.com If you are uncertain about a persons claims a quick check of recognised Clan Chiefs can be found on the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs Website http://www.clanchiefs.org
If you feel someone with a FAKE Scottish Title is using it for fraudulent purposes you should contact The Court of The Lord Lyon at the above Web Address.
