Promoted Clyde
Alloa Athletic
Ross County
Relegated Hamilton Academical

The 1999-00 Scottish Second Division was won by Clyde and ended with Alloa Athletic pipping Ross County to second place on the final day of the season thanks to a 6-1 win over Queen of the South, while Ross County could only manage a 2-2 draw away at Stenhousemuir. The top three were promoted as a result of league reconstruction. Hamilton Academical were relegated for breaking league rules after they were docked 15 points for failing to fulfil a fixture against Stenhousemuir on the April 2000 at Ochilview Park.
