Margaret Drummond (circa 1340 - after January 31, 1375) was the second queen of David II of Scotland and a daughter of Sir Malcolm Drummond, Knt. (died circa 1346) by his wife Margaret, née Graham.

Margaret married first Sir John Logie of that ilk, with no known children. She later served as a mistress to King David who was widowed from his first wife Joan of The Tower on August 14, 1362.

Margaret married second David II of Scotland at Inchmurdach in Fife on February 20, 1364. They had no children and the king divorced her on March 20, 1369 on grounds of infertility. Margaret, however, travelled to Avignon, and made a successful appeal to the Pope to reverse the sentence of divorce which had been pronounced against her in Scotland. She survived the king, and was alive on January 31, 1375, but seems to have died soon after that date.[1]
