Meet The Neighbours at Glencoe House
In May 2013, Highland Titles held its first Gathering of lairds, at the iconic Glencoe House, home to Lord Strathcona, the first laird of Glencoe.
With guests from all corners of the world as well as dozens of local well-wishers, we numbered about 100 during the day and over 60 lairds and ladies, suitably attired, sat down together in three large dining rooms at Glencoe House to celebrate a vision realised.
Everyone involved in this scheme, the “lairds of Glencoe”, had played a real part in creating a community centred on this famous Scottish glen. We are slowly transforming part of a neglected Scottish estate into a unique nature reserve. The Highland Titles nature reserve is owned by its supporters as a partnership with genuine stakeholders.
The “gathering” enabled local residents and lairds to meet each other and leave with an understanding and appreciation of each other. We also had a journalist and cameraman from the prestigious Daily Mail spend the day with us.
We are honoured to have met so many of our supporters and anticipate that the gathering of 2014, the year of the 700th Anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, will be even better. We will be organising the “Highland Titles Homecoming”. Please put the dates of 14th and 15th May, 2014 into you diaries NOW.
