Gavin Mark Hamilton (born 16 September 1974 in Broxburn, West Lothian, Scotland) is an all-round cricketer who played one Test for England and has appeared in a number of One-Day Internationals for Scotland.

Having once again become available for Scotland in January, he was immediately recalled to the national team and in November of that year he played exclusively as a batsman in the ICC Intercontinental Cup final against Canada in Sharjah, making 115 as Scotland won by an innings.
