    Description

    For those who really love all things wild and legendary, we recommend the title Laird of John O’Groates. This title meets both requirements! The village John O’Groates is located in the far north of Scotland and therefore in the far north of the British island. From here you can take a ferry to the Orkney Islands where Skara Brae, the famous settlement from the Stone Age, is located. This means that a Laird or Lady of John O’Groates is a highlander to the core proudly roaming the austere moorlands. After purchasing this nobility title, you will be representing a persevering but also cunning clan as the following story reveals.

    The name John O’Groates actually does not have Scottish or Celtic roots but Dutch roots. Along with several other Dutch countrymen, Jan de Groot settled in the area that is now known as John O’Groates as per Scottish King James IV’s request. A few years prior, under King James II’s reign, the Orkney Islands had changed ownership from Norway to Scotland. Now King James wanted a steady connection to this group of islands and apparently believed the Danish were a good choice for this task. The Danish immigrants liked the Scottish highlands, ran the ferry and formed their own clan. Each year, this clan celebrated the anniversary of their arrival in Scotland with a big festival. The Groots settled into their new environment so well that they appeared to have adopted the legendary Scottish argumentativeness.
