The 1961 Scotch Cup, the men's world curling championship, was held in four venues: Ayr, Kirkcaldy, Perth and Edinburgh, Scotland. The tournament began with games in Ayr on 21 March. The second and third days were on 22 and 23 March in Kirkcaldy, and the fourth day was in Perth on 24 March. The three teams ended up tied with each having a 2-2 win-loss record. This forced a playoff, with a semi-final played on 25 March in Perth and the final played in Edinburgh on 30 March.
