Scotland interim head coach Scott Johnson has named 10 uncapped players in a 35-man squad for a training camp in Glasgow next week ahead of their RBS 6 Nations campaign.

Johnson, looking to impress in his role after taking the reins from Andy Robinson late last year, suffered a double blow last week with Mike Blair retiring and Nick de Luca ruled out for two months due to a fractured eye socket.

The former Ospreys coach has therefore opted to take a look at several promising players, with back-row forwards Ryan Wilson and Chris Fusaro, scrum-half Sean Kennedy, hooker Pat MacArthur and wing Sean Maitland named in a Scotland squad for the first time.

Scotland squad for training camp in Glasgow ahead of Six Nations:

Backs: P Murchie, S Hogg, S Maitland, T Seymour, S Lamont (all Glasgow), T Visser (Edinburgh), M Evans (Castres), M Scott (Edinburgh), A Dunbar, P Horne, D Weir, R Jackson (all Glasgow), T Heathcote (Bath), H Pyrgos, S Kennedy (both Glasgow), G Laidlaw (Edinburgh).

Forwards: A Dickinson (Sale), R Grant, D Hall, P MacArthur (all Glasgow), R Ford (Edinburgh), E Murray (Worcester), G Cross (Edinburgh), M Low, A Kellock (both Glasgow), R Gray (Sale), J Hamilton (Gloucester), G Gilchrist (Edinburgh), K Brown (Saracens), R Harley, R Wilson (both Glasgow), J Beattie (Montpellier), D Denton (Edinburgh), R Vernon (Sale), C Fusaro (Glasgow).
