Scotland on Sunday is a Scottish Sunday newspaper, published in Edinburgh by The Scotsman Publications Ltd and consequently assuming the role of Sunday sister to its daily stablemate The Scotsman. It is printed in broadsheet format.

Whilst technically being Scotland's most right-leaning Scottish Sunday quality, a true diversity in its line makes it more akin to centrist politics; visible in the variety of the stances taken by columns within the Insight opinion section[1][2], as well as featuring contributions from arguably unlikely figures such as a former affiliate of the left-leaning ruling party, the SNP.

Scotland on Sunday was launched on 7 August 1988 and was priced at 40p.

Ultimate ownership of Scotland on Sunday has changed several times since launch. The Scotsman Publications Limited, which also produces The Scotsman, Edinburgh Evening News and the Herald & Post series of free newspapers in Edinburgh, Fife, West Lothian and Perth, was bought by the Canadian millionaire Roy Thomson in 1953.

In 1995, the group was sold to the billionaire Barclay Brothers for £85 million. They moved the group from its landmark Edinburgh office on North Bridge, which is now an upmarket hotel, to new offices on Holyrood Road, near where the Scottish Parliament Building was subsequently built. Then in December 2005 the paper, along with the other Scotsman Publications titles, was sold to Edinburgh based newspaper group Johnston Press in a £160 million deal.
