Heath Shaw, the GWS AFL player, has humourously assumed the title of “Lord”.

It came after Lord Heath Shaw purchased a small plot of land in the Scottish Highlands area of Glencoe, which all come with the title Lord.

He paid A$60 for one square foot.

Lots are priced up to $1000 for 1000 sq foot.

The aim of the investment scheme is to return the once lush Highland landscape, ravaged by commercial forestry and overgrazing over the years, back to its former glory.

"The Lord is on the way to training along Parramatta Road this morning in a horse and cart," he told the 3MMM Hot Breakfast team.

He posted about his new status and property purchase on Twitter yesterday, where he's changed his handle to reflect his new status.

The documentation saw the AFL footballer "entirely renounce, relinquish and abandon the use of my former name of Heath Shaw and assume, adopt and determine to take and use from the date hereof the name and title of Lord Heath Shaw in substitution for my former name of Heath Shaw,” the first clause of the deed reads.

Heath has bought into the first Highland Titles Nature Reserve, which opened in 2007.

It is made up of thousands of plots which are supported by a global community of Lairds.

The land is free to visit whether you have purchased a plot or not.

Located close to the historical Glencoe, the reserve is one of two Highland Titles reserves.

The website advised "every person that purchases a plot from Highland Titles becomes a Laird, Lord or Lady of Glencoe, even if it is a 1 sqft plot."

The Highland Titles Nature Reserve is sustained by the ongoing support of the over 100,000+ Highland Titles community.

"With the purchase of every plot, we are able to work with our partners to  plant more trees, build more shelters for the animals that inhabit the reserves, and progress in our efforts to conserve the land for future generations as well as offer a unique and charming gift to those who support the progress of our efforts.

"Join a community of over 200,000 people around the world who have made a contribution towards conserving Scotland," the website suggests.

The Glencoe Wood estate is located off the main road (A828) between Oban and Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland. The nearest village is Duror, and the nearest Post Code is PA38 4BW.

"It’s official, I am the first AFL player in it history to become a Lord," he tweeted humorously.

His twitter handle was changed accordingly with the accompanying
