Rugby veteran Chris Paterson and television star Lorraine Kelly join Ronnie Corbett on the list of Scots names in the New Year Honours List.
Paterson, who recently announced his retirement from the international game, said he was "honoured and humbled" by the award.
He told STV News: "I never ever thought in a million years I would be rewarded for doing something I love. This is separate to rugby in some ways, I’m so delighted and obviously speechless and gobsmacked. I’m hugely humbled, I just hope I deserve it."
Paterson added the award was not just for him, but also for Scottish rugby.
He said: "I can’t play for Scotland if Scottish rugby doesn’t exist, if I’m not given the support from the guys at Murrayfield, especially the supporters and the fans."
Paterson, who is Scotland's record cap and points scorer, receives an MBE for his services to the sport.
The 33-year-old won 109 caps for his country, amassing a total of 809 points, and is the only Scot to have appeared in four rugby World Cup tournaments.
He announced his retirement from the international game 10 days ago but will continue to play for Edinburgh until the end of the season.
Lorraine Kelly said she was "so thrilled and deeply honoured" to learn she is to receive an OBE.
The TV presenter, who began her career as a trainee reporter on her local paper before joining BBC Scotland and later TVam, gets the gong for her services to charity and the armed forces.
The 52-year-old Dundonian, who presents "Lorraine" on ITV, has long supported the armed forces and this year launched UK Armed Forces Day in Edinburgh.
In 2009 she was appointed to the role of Honorary Colonel of the Black Watch battalion's Army Cadet Force (ACF).
The mother-of-one, who is a Dundee United fan, has been involved with many charities, including Poppyscotland, and this year took part in the 100km BT Red Nose Desert Trek in Kenya, which raised money for Comic Relief projects.
She has also taken part in MoonWalks in Edinburgh and London, 13-mile night-time walks to raise money for breast cancer research, and has run the London and New York marathons.
Edinburgh-born Corbett has already been given an OBE but now receives a CBE for his services to entertainment and charity.
The diminutive entertainer, best know for his comedy double act The Two Ronnies with Ronnie Barker, was one of a host of famous faces who featured in the video for Peter Kay's single (Is This The Way To) Amarillo, which raised money for Comic Relief.
The 81-year-old originally decided to get into performing after playing the wicked aunt in a youth club pantomime and, after doing national service in the air force, started his showbiz career with bit parts in film and theatre.
Then, while performing as part of Danny La Rue's cabaret show in London he was spotted by David Frost, who asked Corbett to appear in the satirical TV show The Frost Report, in which he first worked with Barker.
More recently he has teamed up with some of the current generation of comic talent, appearing as a mischievous version of himself in an episode of Extras in 2006 in which he snorts cocaine during the Baftas.
Also honoured is veteran film-maker Murray Grigor, who receives an OBE for services to architecture and the film industry.
The 72-year-old, who is also a writer and exhibition curator, has directed more than 60 films and was director of the Edinburgh Film Festival between 1967 and 1972.
His work includes Space and Light, filmed at St Peter's Seminary in Cardross in 1972, Big Banana Feet, documenting Billy Connolly's 1975 Irish tour, and Scotch Myths, made for Channel Four in 1982.
Mr Grigor, originally from Inverness, said the honour was "a great privilege."
"It was quite a surprise, it came out of left field," he said.
Other prominent Scots to feature on the New Year Honours List include Robert Black, the Auditor General for Scotland, and Jim Mackinnon, chief planner at the Scottish Government. Both men receive CBEs for their work.
