Robert Scott (November 13, 1771 - January 1841) was a Scottish engraver active in Edinburgh in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was born in Lanark and educated in Musselburgh. He apprenticed as an engraver under Andrew Robertson, of the Andrew Bell (1726 - 1809) engraving lineage. He married Bell's daughter, Ross Bell. He engraved maps and globes for James Kirkwood, John Thomson, and Archibald Fullerton, among others. His own apprentices included Thomas Brown, John Burnett, William Douglas, John Horsburgh, James Steward, and others. Scott was considered the finest Edinburgh engraver of his generation.
