Lieutenancy areas of Scotland


Lieutenancy areas of Scotland

The Lieutenancy areas of Scotland are the areas used for the ceremonial lord-lieutenants, the monarch's representatives, in Scotland. They are different from the local government council areas, the committee areas, the sheriffdoms, the registration counties, the former regions and districts, the former counties of Scotland, and the various other subdivisions of Scotland.

The Lord Provosts of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, and Glasgow also act "ex officio" as lord-lieutenants. This is a unique right in the United Kingdom: all other lord-lieutenants are appointed by the monarch, rather than being elected politicians.
