Margaret Gibson McDowall (born 10 January 1936 in Kilmarnock, Scotland),[1] was educated at Kilmarnock Academy and was a member of the Scottish Swimming Team from the age of 14.[2]

Unusually she practiced in the local municipal swimming baths in Kilmarnock rather than any purpose built training facility.

She was a member of the three-woman relay team at the 1954 Commonwealth games in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.[3]
