The Scottish Rally is the highlight of the Scottish Rally Championship. Taking place in June of every year, the warm weather and unique forest stages draws competitors from around the world.

The first Scottish rally took place in 1932. From then until 1961 there was no overall awards. The event used to enjoy International status, however since 1988, as the World Rally Championship moved to include only one event per country, it has been reduced to a National event in favour of the RAC Rally in Wales. Over the years, the event has been based in towns and cities throughout Scotland including Glasgow, Perth, Inverness and Dunoon, however for the past fifteen years, it has been centered in Dumfries in South West Scotland.

Notable winners of the Scottish Rally include Roger Clark, Hannu Mikkola, David Llewellyn, Stig Blomqvist, Ari Vatanen, Tony Pond and Colin McRae.
