Murray Tosh (born 1 September 1950 in Ayr) is a Scottish Conservative & Unionist politician, and former Member of the Scottish Parliament for the West of Scotland Region (2003–07). He was elected as a Regional Member for the South of Scotland in the 1999 election.

Between 2003 and 2007 he was a Deputy Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament.

Tosh was a councillor on the former Kyle and Carrick District Council.

In the 2007 Holyrood Election, Tosh was the Scottish Conservative Party candidate for the seat of Dumfries. He was defeated by Dr Elaine Murray, the Labour incumbent and as such did not return to Holyrood as an MSP for the 2007-2011 session.

In 2016 the representatives of the IndyCamp protesters stated that Tosh may own the Scottish Parliament building. This claim was dismissed by the lawyer for the Scottish Parliament[1]
