McTavish was born in Glasgow, Scotland to Alec and Ellen McTavish. Alec was a politically active person, and political discourse was common in the McTavish household.

He played Ferguson in the fourth season of Prison Break. He has also starred in the film Green Street 2, which was released on 23 March 2009. McTavish provided the voice and motion capture work for the main antagonist Zoran Lazarević in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, the voice of the main protagonist Dante Alighieri in Dante's Inferno, Commander Lucius in Shadow Complex and the Decepticon Thundercracker in Transformers: War for Cybertron. He played Russian foreign minister Mikhail Novakovich in the eighth season of 24, and did voice work as the Marvel Comics villain Loki in Hulk Versus and The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. In 2011, McTavish also provided the voices of antagonist Joseph Bertrand III in Infamous 2 and newcomer Charlie Cutter in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
In September 2013, it was announced that McTavish had been cast as Dougal MacKenzie in the television series Outlander on Starz. The series is an adaption of the bestselling novels by author Diana Gabaldon. The series premiered on 9 August 2014 to rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.
