Court of Deans

The Arbroath Guildry is one of only 11 Guildries still in existence in Scotland and, outwith the church, it’s the oldest continuously existing organisation in Arbroath.

Scotland’s other Guildries are: Aberdeen; Ayr; Berwick-on-Tweed; Brechin; Dundee; Edinburgh; Glasgow; Lanark; Perth; and Stirling.

The Deans and Lord Deans of all these Guildries are members of the national Court of Deans of Scotland which meets twice a year to provide co-ordination and communication between the various Guildries. The Court is presided over by an annually elected Lord President.
