Scott then signed for Ross County.[5] He scored the second goal for Ross County in their Scottish Cup semi final victory against Celtic at Hampden Park on 10 April 2010.[2][5][6]

It was reported on 24 January 2011 that Hibernian had agreed a transfer fee of approximately £80,000 with Ross County to sign Scott.[1] The deal was confirmed the next day.[5] Scott was fined by Hibs in July 2011 for punching team-mate Sean Welsh during a training session, which resulted in Welsh needing an operation to repair a fractured cheekbone.[7] He scored his first goals for the club in a 5–0 victory in the League Cup against Berwick Rangers in August 2011.[8] Scott played infrequently under the management of Pat Fenlon, and was made available for loan in March 2012.[9] Scott was loaned back to Ross County for the 2012–13 season.[10][11]
