Club career 
Beattie began playing football with her brother Johnnie and his friends, while at primary school. She was eventually selected to the Glasgow Primary School select team, as the only girl, and was named captain. Beattie then played with Hamilton Academical's boys' teams, but began her senior career with Queen's Park Ladies. She played in the Scottish Women's Premier League as a 15-year-old and reached the final of the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup in November 2007. Queen's Park lost 4–0 to a Hibernian Ladies team containing Beattie's future Arsenal team-mate Kim Little.
In January 2008 Beattie moved to Celtic Ladies, but left to join Arsenal Ladies in July 2009. Her first goals for Arsenal came on 8 November 2009 where she scored a stunning treble to seal a comeback against Chelsea after being 2–0 down at half-time. 
International career 
Beattie made her debut for the senior Scotland side in March 2008, against the United States in Cyprus, as second-half substitute for Leanne Ross. She went on to establish herself in the national side during the 2009 European Championships qualifying campaign. She scored her first international goal as Scotland beat Portugal 4–1 in a European Championship qualifying game in May 2008. Beattie played in both legs of the qualifying play-off defeat to Russia in October and November 2008. After the first leg, Beattie and Kim Little were identified by football writer Graham Spiers as talented youngsters.
