The decision now is whether or not to put the Hastings brothers, Gavin and Scott, into the Best Ever Scottish Lions XV.
And where do you start in the back row? Jim Greenwood played in four Tests for the 1955 Lions, while Peter Kinnimonth played in three of the Tests for the 1950 tourists. There's certainly some great options but who would you pick as Scotland's finest back row forward to play for the combined side from the 11 post war tours?
And there's more of the same in many other positions. Hastings or the 2013 Lions tour manager Andy Irvine at full back?
Every rugby fan is a selector at heart so below is a 15 to start the debate. We think it's a pretty decent side for starters but we'd love to know who you'd include in your finest Scottish Lions XV since the 1950 tour to New Zealand and Australia?
