Earl of Inchcape is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.[1] It was created in 1929 for the Scottish shipping magnate and public servant James Mackay, who had been created Baron Inchcape, of Strathnaver in the County of Sutherland, in 1911,[2] and Viscount Inchcape, of Strathnaver in the County of Sutherland, in 1924.[3] Inchcape was made Viscount Glenapp, of Strathnaver in the County of Sutherland, at the same time as he was given the earldom. These titles are also in the Peerage of the United Kingdom.

The family seat is Carlock House, near Ballantrae, Ayrshire. The former family seat was Glenapp Castle, which is currently a luxury hotel, and which was sold by the Inchcape family in 1982, having been acquired by the 1st Earl of Inchcape in 1917. The present Earl of Inchcape, however, still owns the Glenapp Estate.
