Andrew Stewart, 1st Lord Avondale (died 1513) was a Scottish nobleman.

He was the son of Alexander Stewart, from whom he inherited the lands of Avondale. Alexander had inherited them from his uncle Lord Avondale, who had in turn received them following their forfeiture by the last Earl of Douglas and Avondale in 1455.

The title Lord Avondale was revived for Andrew Stewart of Avondale in about 1499. He died in 1513 (killed at the Battle of Flodden) and was succeeded by his son Andrew, who exchanged Avondale for Ochiltree and thus became first Lord Ochiltree. Lord Avondale was also father of Henry Stewart, 1st Lord Methven and Sir James Stewart, father of James Stuart, 1st Lord Doune, whose son James became Earl of Moray.
