For a list of players who have represented the Scotland national rugby union team please see List of Scotland national rugby union players.

This is a list of notable Scottish rugby union players, not necessarily all of whom have represented the Scotland national rugby union team, arranged by decade, most recent first. Some players are included for being notable for other reasons, e.g. Bill McLaren as a broadcaster. Scottish players for other countries are included, e.g. Dugald MacDonald who played for South Africa, while his brother Donald played for Scotland, uncapped Scottish players e.g. Hefin O'Hare and Scotland caps who are notable for reasons other than being on the national rugby union team, e.g. Bill Gammell is better known as a businessman, and Norman Mair as a journalist.

Many players were active in two decades, and so are included in both listings.
