Scottish Barony Titles For Sale from Scottish Barony

Scottish Barons have the right to petition the Lord Lyon King of Arms for a grant of arms with additaments appropriate for a baron. This is not the place to give a lecture on Scots Heraldry; however, we would refer you to Scots Heraldry by Sir Thomas Innes of Learney (various editions).

Scottish barons, depending upon their inclination, often take an active part in the affairs of their barony. One baron has recently helped towards the restoration of the village hall and War Memorial. Another baron has recently endowed an annual prize for the best student at the local agricultural college.

There is no typical profile of the modern baron. Many barons have purchased their baronies to cement their family ties with Scotland. Others because of their keen interest in Scottish history and some because they wanted to treat themselves to something unique.

Baronies in former times were commercial in nature in that barons drew their incomes from their lands. Today many barons use their baronial status to further their business interests. Baronial names may be entered onto passports (depending upon national law), credit cards etc. and the baron's coat of arms may be displayed on letterheads. A barony title is not a peerage title; barony titles are noble titles which were formally tied to land.

There are a number of ways to obtain a barony title and without doubt the nicest way is to be left it as an inheritance. We will do nothing to persuade you that a barony title is a 'good investment' (but see our 2010 Report). Barony titles are to be enjoyed. If you do not have the good luck to inherit a title then the next best thing is to purchase one (and one day you can make someone happy by leaving it to them). Baronies have been bought and sold since the beginning of the last millennium. It is true that in those days vast tracts of land attached to the barony but to-day you can purchase a noble title without having to purchase many thousands of acres.

If you desire a barony title it will cost you a minimum of £75,000 (British Pounds) including associated costs. One barony title very recently sold for £250,000. You may find details of barony titles we currently have for sale on our titles for sale page. We do not always have a title for sale. Our clients, for whom we sell their titles, often prefer us to be more confidential and to sell 'quietly'. We run our business in the 'quill pen' tradition; if you e-mail us we will discuss with you your requirements and attempt to satisfy you.
