Ranking lists are shown for each event for each year within the period from 1959 to 2015. The top ten are shown. These may not always correspond to rankings shown at the time for the following reasons:
• If performances have been identified that were not included within the rankings at the time, such performances have been adjusted for;
• Wind-assisted performances are not ranked;
• Non-Scottish athletes are included in the rankings without being given a ranking position;
• Field events which were originally recorded in feet and inches have been converted to their metric equivalents.
