Thankfully, the Scottish season isn't waiting until the Commonwealth Games are done before getting going.
Sat 26th July weekend - Ramsdens R1
All non top flight (30) + 2 to make the numbers up, presumably Highland League Champs + Lowland League Champs directly without any need for a preliminary round this year.
Looking likely to be Brora Rangers & Spartans.
No draw date yet known. For an equivalent R1 date last year, the R1 draw was made on Friday 28th June.
Sat 2nd Aug weekend - League Cup R1
All the previous season's non top flight (30).
No draw date yet known. For an equivalent R1 date last year, the R1 draw was made on Friday 12th July.
Sat 9th Aug weekend - league season starts
Unclear if that means just for non-top-flight (all these dates taken from a Queens Park website article, Feb 2014 - nothing yet on the SPFL's website).
Eurofooty before that of course. Draws for the first two qualifying rounds of both competitions will be made on Monday 23rd June.
3rd* in the league start in the Europa 1st Qualifying Round :
L1 Thu 3rd July
L2 Thu 10th July
Celtic start in the Champions League 2nd Qualifying Round.
L1 Tue 15 / Wed 16 July
L2 Tue 22 / Wed 23 July
The home fixture will be played at Murrayfield due to Celtic Park being involved in the Commonwealth Games.

L1 Thu 17 July
L2 Thu 24 July
* 4th if Scottish Cup Winner also finishes 2nd or 3rd.
