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 March 21. The second and third days were on March 22&23 in Kirkcaldy, and the fourth day was in Perth on March 24. 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 March 25 in Perth and the final played in Edinburgh on March 30.
