Stuart McMillan (born 6 May 1972) is the Scottish National Party Member of the Scottish Parliament for the Greenock and Inverclyde constituency since 2016, having previously represented the West of Scotland region 2007−2016.
Stuart McMillan was born in Barrow in Furness in Cumbria, England, on 6 May 1972. He moved to Inverclyde when he was a child, where he attended Port Glasgow High School. After attending Central College of Commerce, Glasgow, he studied at the University of Abertay in Dundee where he graduated with a BA (Hons) in European Business Management with Languages and latterly a MBA. Once graduated he worked for IBM before working for Scottish National Party central office in Westminster. Before being elected in 2007, he was office manager to Scottish National Party Member of the Scottish Parliament Bruce McFee.
In 2007 Scottish Parliament election he stood as the SNP candidate for Greenock and Inverclyde constituency, beaten by Labour's Duncan McNeil but was then elected on the regional list for the West of Scotland region. He contested the seat again in the 2011 election which McNeil won with a majority of 511 and McMillan also returned to parliament through the regional list.
During his time as an MSP, McMillan has led campaigns on a number of issues in Inverclyde including a campaign to reduce the price of fuel in the area. He has also been very vocal in his support for action to be taken against the rise of fixed-odds betting terminals in the area and has also lobbied the Scottish Government for money to support flood prevention measures in Inverclyde.
In July 2014, following a previous unsuccessful bid by Inverclyde Council, the area was awarded £1.7million to help flood prevention. The award came after a personal meeting between Stuart McMillan and Scottish Government Ministers.
In 2014, McMillan led a Members' Debate in the Scottish Parliament calling on the Scottish and Westminster Government's to take action on, what he described as "cash cows" for bookmakers.
At McMillan's request, Inverclyde Council agreed to invite former gamblers into secondary schools to speak to pupils about the dangers of gambling. 
In 2014, McMillan also led a Members' Debate in the Scottish Parliament on the increasing reliance of foodbanks in Scotland.
In 2016, McMillan was elected to the constituency of Greenock and Inverclyde.
