John Murray (c. 1667 – 24 March 1714) was a Scottish lawyer and politician.

He was a Commissioner to the Parliament of Scotland for Selkirk from 1689 to 1702 and for Selkirkshire from 1702 until the Act of Union 1707. He was one of the Scottish representatives to the first Parliament of Great Britain, but may not have taken his seat as he was appointed a Lord of Session as Lord Bowhill on 7 June 1707.
