Scottish Bishops

Scottish Bishops are addressed in the same way as Irish Bishops, except for the Primus of Scotland who acts as the Presiding Bishop.

He is elected by the other Bishops and has no Metropolitan power. He is styled "The Most Rev the Primus".

Bishops, including the Primus, sign, after a cross, their Christian name, followed by their diocese. The exceptions are the Bishop of Moray, Ross and Caithness signs "Moray", and the Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane signs "St Andrews", without the other dioceses.

The Bishop of Edinburgh signs by his Christian name followed by "Edenburgen".

Retired Scottish Bishops

Retired Scottish bishops are addressed in the same way as other retired bishops (i.e. Rt Rev John Smith, Dear Bishop).
