A former captain and full-back with Scottish Schools, out of George Watson’s College in Edinburgh, he was first capped for Scotland a month after his 21st birthday in January 1986 against France.

Ever present in the Scotland team he captained the Barbarians against the 1993 All Blacks and has Captained Scotland at 7 a-side rugby. He played in ten of Scotland’s fourteen World Cup games in 1987, 1991, 1995 and joined ITV's commentary team for the 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015 Rugby World Cups.

In 1989 Scott played in 9 of the 11 games with the British and Irish Lions on their winning tour of Australia, including the final two test matches. He also toured with the Lions in 1993 on the tour to New Zealand.
