Gillespie comes in for Rory Hughes who strained his hamstring in training yesterday.
Head coach Phil Greening said: "We wish Rory a speedy recovery, but we're fortunate to be able to bring in a deserving replacement in Darren Gillespie."
"He has a lot of grit and the opportunity to compete on the circuit will be good for his development."
Gillespie has previously been involved with Scotland in the FIRA-AER European GP Sevens Series, in Lyon and Moscow.
Scotland take on Kenya, Fiji and Spain in Pool A.
Scotland Sevens: James Johnstone, Michael Fedo, Darren Gillespie, John Houston, Colin Gregor (capt), Mark Roberton, Andrew Turnbull, Colin Shaw, Scott Riddell, Michael Maltman, James Fleming, Alex Glashan.
