John McCulloch (1842–1912) was a Scottish land valuer and a Liberal politician.

McCulloch was the son of John McCulloch, of Killiamore, Wigtownshire and his wife Margaret Mitchell of Carsphairn, Kirkcudbright. He was educated at a parochial school and became a land valuer. He was an inspector for Dundee mortgage and land companies in America and then director of Peter Lawson & Son (Limited). He was a medallist of the Highland Society and a vice-president of Scottish Chamber of Agriculture.[1]

At the 1885 general election, McCulloch was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Glasgow St. Rollox,[2] but he did not stand for the seat in 1886.[3]
