He signed on a two-year contract, which keeps him in the capital until at least May 2019.

A product of Dunfermline RFC and Strathallan School, McCallum represented Caledonia as part of the regional pathway programmes before gaining selection for Scotland at under-18 and under-20 level.

He debuted for Edinburgh Rugby as a replacement in the 45-10 defeat of Treviso in October 2016, before making his first start for the club the in the 59-17 victory over Timisoara Saracens the following week.
