Ralph Callachan (born 29 April 1955 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish former association football player, who played for the three modern senior clubs in Edinburgh; Hearts, Hibs and Meadowbank Thistle. He played in Scottish Cup finals for both Hearts and Hibs, but both were lost to Rangers. Hearts lost 3 - 1 in 1976 and Hibs lost 3 - 2 in the second replay of 1979.

Callachan started his career with Hearts, where he made enough of an impact to earn a £90,000 move to Newcastle United. He only played nine league games in England before returning to Edinburgh, this time with Hibernian. Hibs' popular full-back John Brownlie was sent to Newcastle as part of the deal to bring Callachan to Easter Road.

He also served as Berwick Rangers manager for two years, acting as a player-manager.
