List of burghs in Scotland

This is a link page for burghs (pronounced burras) in Scotland. These are the equivalents of towns in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The most important burghs are royal burghs, followed by burghs of regality and burghs of barony. Some newer settlements were only designated as police burghs, a classification which also applies to most of the older burghs. For convenience, Scottish cities are also listed, marked in bold.

Legally speaking, burghs in Scotland were abolished in 1975, however the term remains in common usage.
