Season 196 kicked off with the Summer Cup, in which Hibs won the trophy for the first time with a 2—0 victory over Dundee United in the final.

In the league, reigning champions Aberdeen set off at a furious pace and never looked back. By the halfway stage of the season they had built up a 5-point lead having only drawn two matches and lost none so far. They upped the pace in the second half of the season, drawing only one more match and winning the rest. They won the title with 5 games still to play and attained a record-breaking 84 points from a possible 90. It is their 13th title. Hibs played well to clinch second place ahead of the Old Firm teams, Celtic and Rangers, who took third and fourth places respectively. At the bottom, Hamilton, Clyde and Kilmarnock fought it out to avoid relegation and in the end Killie managed to retain their place in the top level sending Hamilton and Clyde down.

The Second Division was a little more interesting and saw an early battle between Arbroath and Dunfermline for top position. Following the halfway stage Arbroath forged ahead, leaving Dunfermline to fend off a challenge by Raith Rovers for second place. This tussle came down to the final games, but Inverness had also improved their form to come within a point in the final matches. Raith Rovers drew their final two matches to stumble at the last hurdle, and on the final day Inverness won 2—1 at Ayr United whilst Dunfermline could only draw 1—1 at Dumbarton and thus Inverness snatched the second promotion spot from the two Fife teams. At the bottom, Peterhead started poorly and never recovered and eventually finished last by 13 points and will therefore drop to the third tier.
