Jonathan Baillie (born 2 September 1985) is a former Scottish professional association football player who briefly played for Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League.

Baillie, a central defender, made his Hibs debut during the 2003 - 04 season when manager Bobby Williamson drafted him in to defence for a League Cup quarter-final match against Celtic in December 2003, which the 18-year old Baillie helped his side win 2 - 1. Injuries meant that he didn't get a prolonged spell in the first team. He had to wait for selection until another match against Celtic three months later, but Hibs were beaten 4 - 0 and Baillie himself was sent-off.

Baillie made just two appearances in Tony Mowbray's time as manager and wasn't picked after a 4 - 4 home draw against Dundee in September 2004. He had a brief loan spell at Ayr United in January 2006, but did not play a first-team game for Hibernian in over two and a half years. Baillie was the victim of a catalogue of injury problems, which forced him to retire from senior football at the end of the 2006 - 07 season, aged just 21.

Baillie has since worked as a car salesman and has returned to football in the junior ranks with local club Troon.
