Stuart Beedie (born 16 August 1960 in Aberdeen) is a Scottish former football player, who played as a midfielder for a number of Scottish clubs, including St. Johnstone, Dundee United, Hibernian, Dunfermline and Dundee. Beedie won a Scottish Cup runners-up medal with Dundee United, scoring United's goal in a 2 - 1 defeat to Celtic in the 1985 Scottish Cup Final.

Beedie was a "very solid" midfielder, who played a significant role in an infamous incident between Hibernian and Rangers at the start of the 1986 - 87 season. Graeme Souness was making his first appearance in Scottish football as player-manager of Rangers in a match at Easter Road, but he was sent off for an "assault" on Hibs player George McCluskey. That incident had been sparked by Beedie making a strong challenge on Souness. Beedie also scored a goal in that match, in which Hibs secured a famous 2 - 1 win.

After retiring from playing in 1995, Beedie moved to Australia, where he was assistant manager at Wollongong Wolves. Beedie remained in the country and managed Illawarra side Dapto.
