Results[edit]

League Two play-offs[edit]

The semi-final was contested by the winners of the Highland League (Brora Rangers) and Lowland League (Edinburgh City). The winning club then played off against the bottom club in League Two, which was Montrose, with the overall winner taking a place in League Two for the 2015–16 season. Had Montrose lost their League Two status, they would have dropped down to the next season's Highland League.
