That's enough from me. Thanks for sharing some of your Scottish Cup memories.

There could be a few more in the making after that draw...

St Johnstone FC on Twitter: "Tommy Wright on drawing Ross County in Cup: 'It's a home tie which is good and there is little doubt that the two sides know each other well'."

Brian Lindsay on Twitter: "Raith potentially away to another junior side.... banana skin coming up! #bbcscotfootball"

Colin White on Twitter: That's a belter of a Scottish Cup 4th rd draw - every Premiership team either draws another, or 1 of top 2 in Championship #bbcscotfootball

Andi Fulton on Twitter: "We don't want a repeat of the 4-3 final. Esp if 'well win again. C'mon United! #bbcscotfootball"

Hibernian, beaten finalists in 2012 and 2013, have already lost at Alloa this season but have better memories of Somerset Park, having won 2-0 against the Honest Men during that cup run in 2012.

Dundee v Aberdeen, Motherwell v Dundee United and Rangers v Kilmarnock are other matches likely to catch the eye of broadcasters.

The ties are due to be played on the weekend of 29 November.

The TV execs will be chewing over which matches to broadcast. I suspect Hearts v Celtic will be top of the list. The Jambos, Scottish Cup winners in 2012, were brushed aside at Celtic Park in the League Cup earlier this term and were hammered 7-0 by Celtic at Tynecastle at this stage last season.

St Johnstone, first out of the hat today, enjoyed Scottish Cup glory last season. Can they go all the way again? The Saints will be happy to be at home but Ross County will be tough opponents.

So, are you pleased with the draw? Brora Rangers fans are set for a long trip to Dumfries and Spartans will fancy their chances at home to either Morton or Airdrieonians.

Time to squeeze in a few more...

Aiden Ingram on Twitter: "Aberdeen beating Celtic 2-1 last season in the scottish cup was one of the best games I've ever been to #bbcscotfootball"


Holders St Johnstone are at home to Ross County, while the other top flight ties are St Mirren v Inverness CT, Dundee v Aberdeen, Motherwell v Dundee Utd and Partick Thistle v Hamilton.

Well, well. There's a few corkers there. Lots of all-Premiership ties as well as Celtic and Kilmarnock versus the top two in the Championship!

A lot of the smaller teams will be dreaming of a good run.

Here we go!

It's musical montage time... We're getting there.

BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Hampden

"Just been told it's two minutes until we're live... interested observers include Motherwell general manager Alan Burrows and Hamilton Accies captain Martin Canning."

Right, it's past two by my watch but that collapsing decor is holding things up. SFA chief executive Stewart Regan has just nipped to the corner shop for some double-sided sticky tape.

Christopher Greig on Twitter: "Rangers fan but went with Saints friends to the final in May 1 of the best moments of my life when Maclean scored the 2nd #bbcscotfootball"

Andrew Priestley on Twitter: "Hearts 5-1 Hibs is an unforgettable Scottish Cup moment. #bbcscotfootball"

BBC Scotland's Kenny Crawford at Hampden Park

"Okay so we're deep in the bowels of Hampden for this Scottish Cup fourth round draw. A few finishing touches are being made to the decor and camera-men are jockeying for position.

"Making the draw is former Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, who's nervously chatting through procedure in his white open-topped shirt. Some of the decor has just fallen down, so do bear with us..."

Open-topped shirt? Is Mr O'Dea going all Tom Jones and showing off his chest or is it the kind of shirt a cup-winner wears on an open-top bus?

Not long to go now. Those balls will be clattering round the tombola in around five minutes...

Andy Duncan on Twitter: "Seeing St Johnstone win their first ever cup last season. Best football day, no just best day ever. #bbcscotfootball"

David McCallum on Twitter: "#bbcscotfootball Airdrie's 4-1 demolition of Raith Rovers at Stark's Park 1995. Best Diamonds performance in 40 years watching"

dmac on Twitter: #bbcscotfootball Scott Brown curls a 25 yarder past Allan McGregor and follows it up with the Broony \0/"

Celtic hold the record for Scottish Cup wins with 36 successes, while they have been runners-up on 18 occasions. Queen's Park are third on the all-time list, behind Rangers, but haven't been on a horse-drawn, open-top wagon since 1893.

Saints boss Tommy Wright looks very attached to the oldest trophy in word football. He won't be giving it up without a fight...

St Johnstone are the cup holders, having picked up the trophy for the first time last May. The Perth side beat Dundee United 2-0 in the final at Celtic Park thanks to goals from Steven Anderson and Steven MacLean.

The final will be back at Hampden this season now that the running track installed for the Commonwealth Games has been dismantled.

There was quite a stir on Saturday evening when Celtic were drawn to face Rangers in the last four of the League Cup. What are the chances of a repeat?

Hurlford United and Bo'ness United are still flying the flag for the Juniors after playing out draws against senior sides at the weekend. Bo'ness came from 3-0 down at Elgin to share eight goals. Those ties will be replayed next Saturday, along with Airdrieonians v Morton and Alloa v Ayr Utd.

Highland League leaders Brora Rangers are in the mix after a good 3-2 win at Edinburgh City on Saturday. Those two could well meet again in the new end-of-season play-offs.

Lowland League Spartans are in there too following an excellent 2-0 home win over Clyde.

While we wait, it would nice to hear some of your fond Scottish Cup memories. Be it glorious goals, last-minute drama in midweek replays or episodes of Celebrity SuperScot with Jane Franchi on cup final day.

Use #bbcscotfootball on Twitter for a jaunt down Memory Lane.

The balls will be picked from the tombola at Hampden from 14:00 GMT, with former Celtic defender Darren O'Dea doing the honours, along with Scottish FA president Campbell Ogilvie.

Good afternoon and welcome to our coverage of the Scottish Cup fourth round draw. The big boys are in the hat now, joining all of those still standing.
