Welcome to the Royal Order of Scotland’s Website.
Every meeting of the Royal Order of Scotland could, in theory, take a dramatic turn. Beside the Chairman a seat is left empty, except for a robe, crown and sceptre, in case the hereditary Grand Master, the King of the Scots, should decide to take up his place.
Since the King of the Scots is the Grand Master of the Royal Order, the Chairman of the Order has the title of Deputy Grand Master and Governor. The honour is held today by Sir Archibald Donald Orr Ewing, Baronet, pictured above in his regalia between (l to r) Bro. Rev. Canon J.C. Lindsay, Grand Chaplain and Bro. J.M.M. Humphrey of Dinnet, Deputy Governor.
