The Last King of Scotland is a 1998 novel by journalist Giles Foden. Focusing on the rise of Ugandan President Idi Amin and his reign as dictator from 1971 to 1979, the novel is a fictional memoir of a young Scottish doctor Dr. Nicholas Garrigan who was in Amin's employ. The novel is based on factual events of Amin's rule (Nicholas Garrigan is a fictional character in the plot).

The title comes from a reporter in a press conference who wishes to verify whether Idi Amin declared himself the King of Scotland.

The novel was also made into a movie where Forest Whitaker played Idi Amin in a brilliant performace.
