MacDonald Title goes on sale for 1 million pounds


Sir Ian Noble, a Gaelic-speaking landowner, is selling the Barony of MacDonald for 1 million pounds, or about $1.5 million - the highest price ever asked for a feudal title.  The price for the 800-year-old title also includes the ruins fo the 15th-century MacDonald stronghold Knock Castle on the Isle of Skye and four acres of land.  The current Lord MacDonald, Chief of the MacDonalds, said Sir Ian had alerted him to the sale in advance but he had no plans to bid on the title.  "It would be nice if the title went to a member of Clan Donald.  But at the very least, I hope the buyer will use the title in the best interests of the name of our great clan and of Skye," he said.  Whoever buys the title, which is being marketed by
Baronytitles.com, would be able to call themselves Baron of MacDonald.
