The Scottish Barony Register is a non-statutory register, established by members of the legal profession in Scotland following the passing of the Feudal Reform (Scotland) Act 2000. On 28 November 2004 Feudal Law was abolished in Scotland, and Barony titles could no longer be registered in the Scottish Land Registers. The Scottish Barony Register is a Company Limited by Guarantee, with the registered number SC276349.
There is no legal requirement to register a Barony title in the Register, but the Custodian checks the titles and documents presented to him very carefully, and this rigorous control maintains the integrity of the Register. The Custodian endeavours to apply the high standards of the Scottish Land Registers to ensure that the legal profession, and their clients, can rely on the information provided, and that the purchase and sale of Barony titles can be conducted properly and professionally.
