Andrew Graham was Bishop of Dunblane between 1573 × 1575 and 1603. He received license for election after the deprivation of William Chisholm (II) on 3 July 1573, with crown confirmation and mandate for consecration on 17 May 1575. He was granted the temporalities of the bishopric on 28 July 1575. He resigned the see early in 1603, making way for his kinsman George Graham. His episcopate fell in a time when the role of bishops had been reduced to little more than nominal function.
