“Having the ability to play four games on this year’s July tour is a brilliant opportunity for us,” said Scotland coach Gregor Townsend.

“It will enable us to spend added time working with a wider group of players, building more cohesion with our squad and also giving more players experiences of preparing for and playing Test-match rugby.

“With the travel demands and contrasting styles of rugby from the four nations we face, we will be challenged on and off the field to deliver quality performances.”

The Scots will face Canada in Ottawa on July 6, the United States in Washington on July 12, Chile in Santiago on July 20 and Uruguay in Montevideo on July 27.

Townsend’s men conclude their Six Nations campaign away to tournament leaders and title-holders Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.
