Questions and Answers About the Scottish Land Plot...

QuestionWhere are the land plots?
Answer

Although located in an area of outstanding beauty, the plots are only about 40 minutes drive to central Edinburgh. In fact, at the very epicentre of Scottish history. Robert the Bruce, William Wallace, and many other giants of our history walked these lands, fought in them and died in them (Robert Bruce is buried only 6 miles away). Precise maps diagrams and directions are included with the Owners Guide.

QuestionIs the view really as good as you say it is?
Answer

It is probably better. In fact, we may not have done it justice because, it is truly stunning. You can see Stirling, the William Wallace (Braveheart) Monument, Ben Lomond, the Firth of Forth, the legendary Forth Bridge and Edinburgh Castle. Virtually where all Scottish history took place in one panoramic vista.

QuestionWill I actually own the land?
Answer

Yes, most assuredly. We have gone to a very great deal of trouble to make certain of that our customers are completely legally protected. Each plot has had its own location identified and has been given a unique administrative reference number. It is legally leased to you (and your successors) for a full 175 years - the maximum available under Scottish Law- and thereafter it is extendable completely free of charge indefinitely. You will receive a legally binding Contract drawn up by our lawyers in Edinburgh in which your rights are enshrined in the Law of Scotland. The land then belongs to you and your descendants in perpetuity.

QuestionWhat if I make a mistake when I give you the details to go on the documents?
Answer

All of the documents are generated automatically online, so this is not a problem as you will be able to easily change some of the information for some documents, and you will be asked to double check the information you cannot change to avoid mistakes.

QuestionCan more than one person own the Plot?
Answer

Unfortunately there can only be 1 name per plot; however we allow you to purchase up to 10 plots and a different name can be added for each plot which will appear on the documents for that plot.

QuestionCan the plot be inherited?
Answer

Yes, as it is your exclusive property, and it will pass on to your descendents with your other property.

QuestionCan I build on the plot?
Answer

The intention is to keep the land in its natural beautiful condition, so it cannot be built on. The land is to be preserved for present and future generations (particularly your own). In this way, you will be helping to keep a beautiful part of Scotland beautiful for ever.

QuestionDoes possession of this land entitle me to British citizenship?
Answer

Scottish citizenship would be much more appropriate. But sorry, the answer is no. Ownership of land in the United Kingdom of Great Britain (of which Scotland is currently a part) does not automatically confer any citizenship or residential rights.

QuestionAre there taxes or other official issues related to land ownership?
Answer

There are no taxes or any further financial liabilities whatsoever. The purchase price is the only cost that will ever be incurred.

QuestionCan I buy more than one plot?
Answer

Yes, you can buy up to 10 plots. You'll just need to enter all of the name of the person the plot is for each plot.

QuestionCan I visit the land?
Answer

You can and we would encourage you to do so. The walks are truly superb and the enormity of the views will astonish you. All directions on how to get to the plots are given in the plot documentation. We would, however, ask you to stay on the official pathway, ensure gates are closed, and respect the property and privacy of your neighbours.
