Scotchmans Lead, a rural locality 6 km (3.7 statute miles) from Buninyong, in South Western Victoria, Australia, sits between the Yarrowee River, Midland Highway and Scotchmans Lead Road. It has recently been renamed Scotchmans Lead from Yarrowee, after a proposal by the Ballarat City Council to change its name back to its historic days.
Scotchmans Lead was once a prominent mining area and farming area, with many properties still rearing animals such as cows and horses. The former Scotchmans Lead school, itself originally a church, has recently been turned into a bed-and-breakfast.
Scotchman's Lead Post Office opened on 17 January 1865, was renamed Yarrowee in 1875, and closed in 1961.
