It was hard to narrow down the selection – and there are some excellent candidates who haven’t made our shortlist. We came up with a fantastic group of Scots, however, and want your help choosing a winner. From today, we’ll be putting up head-to-head polls on our website, Twitter and Facebook that you can vote on.

The winner will be revealed in this week’s Sunday National.

On the science side we have legendary physician Alexander Fleming, and Dolly the Sheep, the first mammal cloned from an adult cell. Doctor Elsie Inglis is another option – the founder of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals.

Industrialist Andrew Carnegie, known for his incredible philanthropy, makes the list, along with architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

In politics, one of the most iconic has to be Madame Ecosse, Winnie Ewing, up alongside Labour’s Keir Hardie and 1915 rent strike organiser Mary Barbour.

Scotland has had some truly iconic entertainers and artists too.

Is novelist Muriel Spark the most iconic Scot of the 20th century, or poet Hugh MacDiarmid?

The list would not be complete without two other famous names, though – comedian Billy Connolly and actor Sean Connery.
