A Lord Provost is the figurative and ceremonial head of one of the principal cities in Scotlandmarker. Four cities, Aberdeenmarker, Dundeemarker, Edinburghmarker and Glasgowmarker, have the right to appoint a Lord Provost instead of a provost (mayor). The Lord Provosts of Edinburghmarker and Glasgowmarker enjoy the style of "The Right Honourable" before their names.

A Lord Provost has a higher status than Lord Mayor in other parts of the United Kingdommarker. He is ex officio the Lord Lieutenant for that city, in accordance with section 1 of the Lieutenancies Act 1997 - allowing the city council to choose its own representative from the Queen.

Permission to use the title 'Lord Provost" is granted to a city by The Queen under the Royal Prerogative, acting on the advice of Government Ministers.
