the baronial court, and the baron's household

Baron's Courts and the Baronial Household have long been a feature of Scots Law and Scottish Life. With the abolition of Feudal Tenure in 2004 the courts lost their official jurisdiction (Any jurisdiction of... barony shall on the appointed day cease to exist; but nothing in this Act affects the dignity of baron or any other dignity or office (whether or not of feudal origin). Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc. (Scotland) Act 2000, Sec. 63 (1.))

Most Baronies do not have a court anymore, but despite the above cited abolition of jurisdiction, some Baron's Courts still exist in a largely ceremonial capacity in Scotland. They now usually comprise a group of individuals who contribute proposals for the betterment of the Barony and its social impact on the local area. Individuals are still appointed to the traditional offices, and ceremonial business, such as the proclamation of a new monarch is occasionally transacted by an official sitting of the court.
