Ten ministers of the Church of Scotland are appointed as Chaplains to the Queen in Scotland. As of 2012, the Dean of the Chapel Royal in Scotland is the Very Reverend Dr John B. Cairns.

Honorary Chaplains wear a red cassock and a special bronze badge consisting of the royal cypher and crown within an oval wreath. The badge is worn below medal ribbons or miniature medals during the conduct of religious services on the left side of the scarf by chaplains who wear the scarf and on academic or ordinary clerical dress by other chaplains.[4]
