Nora Radcliffe (born 4 March 1946, Aberdeen) is a Scottish Liberal Democrat politician and former Member of the Scottish Parliament for Gordon, first elected in 1999. During her two terms in the Scottish Parliament she held various party spokespersonships, most frequently the Scottish Liberal Democrats' Equal Opportunities, Environment and Rural Development briefs.

It is her work for the environment, campaigns to increase the provision of NHS dentistry in the North East of Scotland and her attempts to improve transport infrastructure in the area that Radcliffe was best known for during her time in as Gordon's MSP.

In the 2007 Scottish Parliament elections, she once more contested Gordon, but was defeated by Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party, who earned 14,650 votes to her 12,588.[1]

Radcliffe was awarded the "Friend for Life" award by the Equality Network in recognition of her work as the Scottish Parliament's first Reporter on Sexual Orientation Issues. This award is made to a non-LGBT person who has worked for equality.[2]
