BBC Two Scotland (Gaelic: BBC Dhà Alba) is a television station operated by BBC Scotland. It is broadcast via analogue and digital television and is the sister Scottish channel of BBC One Scotland.

Although listed as a separate station by some guides, 'BBC Two Scotland' and 'BBC Two Scotland (Digital)' are effectively the same channel, broadcasting identical feeds.

Programming

Similarly to "BBC One Scotland", BBC Two Scotland offers differing programming from the UK-wide network specifically aimed at Scottish viewers. Often, this is more specialised programming such as "Artworks Scotland", "Holyrood Live" and the Gaelic strands branded as "BBC Two (Dhà) Alba". Also, on weeknights, Newsnight Scotland opts-out of the main Newsnight programme from 11 o'clock onwards. Additionally, during the daytime and overnight schedules, BBC Scotland replaces some of the national education programming for shows better targeted at the separate Scottish education system. BBC Sport Scotland will sometimes use BBC Two Scotland to broadcast coverage of more minority sports, such as athletics and shinty, with some sports such as mountain biking and cross-country showcased in "The Adventure Show".

Recent examples of BBC Two Scotland programmes include:
* "Politics Scotland"
* "Holyrood Live"
* "videoGaiden"
* "Dè a-nis?"
* "Cunntas"
* "Landward"
* "Rathad an Sutha"
* "The Adventure Show"
* "The Music Show"
* "Wildlife Detectives"
* "Newsnight Scotland"
