Hastings, who captained the 1993 Lions tour to Australia, believes Scotland’s performances in finishing third in the championship last month will have caught the eye of coach Warren Gatland.
Gatland is due to announce his squad on April 30 and former Scotland full-back Hastings is certain Richie Gray, Stuart Hogg and Sean Maitland will all be on the plane.
However the 51-year-old feels there are other Scots who have put their hands up and insists Gatland should not be afraid to capitalise on their fine start to life under coach Scott Johnson.
“I’m hopeful that three or four will be chosen for the squad, and at a push we may get five or six places,” he told the Scotsman.
“As well as Richie Gray, who I’ve chosen in my Test team, I think Stuart Hogg and Sean Maitland will go on tour after a fine Six Nations campaign.
“There’s a good chance for Greig Laidlaw, and one of our front rows should go as well – Euan Murray or maybe Ryan Grant, who has impressed me in recent matches. Ross Ford may get in, and Kelly Brown might be considered.
“It would be great if Tim Visser got in as well as his two back-three colleagues, Hogg and Maitland. But it will be hard for him, and even harder for the other Scots I haven’t mentioned.”
