Peerage of Scotland

This category is part of Scottish History and managed by the Scotland Project. The Category encompasses nobility of the Kingdom of Scotland from its definable origin as the Kingdom of Alba until the Treaty of the Union in 1707. After that date the Peerage of Scotland became part of the Peerage of Great Britain. As such, it is larger than that provided on wikipedia. The primary source reference for research into this field are the nine volumes of Sir Balfour Paul's work, "The Scots Peerage".

The Peerage, as we know it today, arrived with the adoption of Feudalism in Scotland, generally defined as occurring in the reign of King David I.
