William Scot (or William of Stitchill; died c. 1243) was a medieval Bishop of Durham-elect.

Scot was Archdeacon of Worcester in December 1218.[1] He was elected to the see of Durham before 20 October 1226 but the election was quashed by Pope Gregory IX on 19 May 1227.[2] He died about 1242 or 1243.[1]

Scot may have been the father of Robert Stitchill, who was Bishop of Durham from 1260 to 1274.[3]
