Both of these terms refer to degrees in Freemasonry, and this is a fraternal organization that originated centuries ago. York rite refers to a collection of Masonic degrees, which are usually presented separately. York Rite originated from the city of York, where the first meetings of the Masons in England took place. On the other hand, Scottish rites refer to the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, conferred to freemasonry members in the United States.

Both Scottish and York rites are devoted to the benefit of society through a person's improvement. York rites consist of three independent bodies, including chapter, council, and commandry. Scottish rites have four coordinate bodies, including the Lodge of Perfection, the council of Kadosh, Consistory, and the chapter of Rose Croix. The uniforms worn by York rite have ceremonial swords, while the Scottish rite garments consist of an ornamental hat, which has the symbolic braiding of a double-headed golden eagle.

Considering the differences between York rites and Scottish rites, foremost, York rites deals with a collection of some Masonic degrees that are known to confer separately in most cases. This term "York rites" actually originated from the York City, which happens to be the location where the very first masons meetings took place in England. On the other side of the coin, the Scottish rites have to do with the ancient Scottish rites, which is already accepted, and it confers to the members of freemasonry in the United States.

These rites are assigned to be of benefits to the society based on the individual improvements of the group members. In York rites, there are three different and autonomous bodies, which include their commandery, chapter, and counsel. On the other hand, there are four coordinate bodies in the Scottish rites, which are the council of Kadosh, the chapter of Rose Croix, consistory, and the lodge of perfection. These two rites are also known to put on different attires.
