A medical doctor whose estate was in the parish of Old Cumnock. He was one of those involved in the Douglas-Heron Bank collapse.  Robert Burns visited him in Ayr, and it was through Dr Douglas, who had bought an estate in Jamaica which his brother, Charles, managed, that Burns was offered the post of book-keeper to Charles in Port Antonio.

The Rev Hamilton Paul listed him as one of those present at the first meeting in 1801 in the Cottage at Alloway held to celebrate the poet's birth.

Dr Douglas was for a time a surgeon in the West Lowland Fencible Regiment.
