The 2016 Coral Scottish Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament that began on 12 December and ended on 18 December 2016 at the Commonwealth Arena in Glasgow, Scotland. It was the eleventh ranking event of the 2016/2017 season.[1]

The Scottish Open returned as a full-ranking event, being held as part of a new Home Nations Series introduced in the 2016/2017 season with the existing Welsh Open and new English Open and Northern Ireland Open tournaments.[2][3] The winner of the Scottish Open is awarded the Stephen Hendry Trophy which is named in honour of Scottish seven-time World Champion Stephen Hendry. Ding Junhui was the defending champion but he decided not to compete this year.

Marco Fu captured his third ranking title by beating John Higgins 9–4, having trailed 1–4.[4]
