"Buyer Beware" when buying small pieces of Scottish land is what we tell anyone who contacts Caithness.org.  If you are reading this in the UK or another country just think about why you would want to encourage this useless means of breaking up land for bit of paper with meaningless titles.  And most Scots would laugh at at the whole idea even if the sale is legal.  Also it might be worth checking the rights others might have with the new "Rights Of Access" and think about whether your responsibility as a land owner might have you incur legal bills in the future over disputes or other events surrounding that little square of land.  If you want to help perpetuate a little bit of Scotland give your money to a charity like the John Muir Trust who retain land and estates for the good of the environment and the public at large.
