The heir-apparent or heir presumptive to a Scottish peerage is known as a Master, or Mistress if the heir is female.

The heir's style is The Master of or The Mistress of . If the master is an heir-apparent, and the peerage has subsidiary titles that could be used as a courtesy title, then the styling of Master is usually forgone. However, if the person is an heir-presumptive, or if the peerage has no subsidiary titles, Master/Mistress is a common styling.
