What do you think of the websites selling plots and titles in highland estates?

Great money spinner, protects woodland area's, hilarious gift or complete rip off?

Now if the SNP were going to nationalise all the estates and throw the descendants of the thieving bastard war lords that took the land in the first place on to a council estate in possilpark and banned foreign companies from buying big estates then it might make the political debate more interesting.

I paid for a star to be named after my nephew when he was born. There is a star out there called 'Henry William James'. :-6:-6

Yeah, having the students call me Dr. already gets me enough comments. What if I made them call me "Lady" too!

Rip off. Pure and simple, aimed at our deprived colonial cousins (such as the poor bloody English).

Yup, back when I worked in the local farm supplies (many moons ago) a woman came in to request opening up an account, I handed over the forms to her for her to fill in. She handed them back and told me to do it, gritting teeth and remembering that the customer is always right I made a start, looking up at her I said 'Mrs?' requesting her surname, she told me 'Well actually it's 'Lady, cross through the Mrs you have checked there and write in Lady' :wah:

It never appeared on the account, just went under the surname just like all the others. ;)
