In 1930, the Scottish burghs were split into two types, large burghs and small burghs. The councils of large burghs had more responsibilities and power than those of small burghs.

All burghs in Scotland were abolished in 1975 and replaced with the uniform system of districts and regions, which is itself now defunct. See Subdivisions of Scotland for the modern units of local government in the country.
