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!

There are three scheduled tours a week which can be booked. 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.
Are there any other perks with this gift?
Yes! Having registered your gift, you will be able to take advantage of a number of additional perks. These are outlined in your Life as a Laird or Lady booklet which forms part of this gift.
