Rangers retained the Scottish Premier League title last season
Champions Rangers host Kilmarnock while runners-up Celtic travel to take on promoted Inverness as the Scottish Premier League kicks off in August.
Third-top Dundee United travel to face St Mirren, Motherwell host Hibernian, Hearts are at home to St Johnstone and Hamilton Accies visit Aberdeen.
Celtic are at home for the Old Firm derbies on 23 October and 19 February, with Rangers at home on New Year's Day.
The opening fixtures take place on Saturday 14 August.
United are involved in the first two Sunday fixtures, when they host Inverness Caley Thistle on 22 August and travel to Tynecastle to face Hearts a week later.
It will be a great occasion against Celtic and hopefully we can get off to a good start
Inverness Caledonian Thistle assistant manager Maurice Malpas
As is traditional, the fixture list, released by the Scottish Premier League on Thursday, hands the reigning champions a start to the campaign in front of their own fans.
After Rangers unfurl the league flag prior to the game against Kilmarnock, who have yet to name a manager to succeed Jimmy Calderwood, the Glasgow side travel to Edinburgh to face Hibs.
St Johnstone then provide the opposition at Ibrox on 28 August.
Rangers' Glasgow rivals, Celtic, are the first opponents for Caledonian Thistle on their return to the top flight, when Terry Butcher's side will unfurl the Division One championship flag.
Inverness assistant manager Maurice Malpas was philosophical about being handed a difficult start to the season.
"First and foremost, we are delighted to be back in the SPL," he told BBC Scotland.
"We were complaining last season that we were no longer there, so it would be churlish to complain about having such a tough game to start.

"All the opening games are tough when you first come up and this is one that we won't need to motivate the players for.
"The fans will be looking forward to it, it will be a great occasion and hopefully we can get off to a good start."
Inverness defender Grant Munro knows that manager Terry Butcher will be looking for a winning start no matter the opposition.
"It's an exciting opening day fixture and the unfurling of our First Division championship flag will make the occasion even greater," he said.
"Opening day games are usually nail-biting affairs and against such good opposition as Celtic the stage is set for a thriller as we bid to rack up our first points.
"The unveiling of the fixtures has our lads buzzing as it really brings it home that we're back in the top flight - and I'm sure our fans will get the same buzz."
Danny Lennon also faces a tough first competitive test as the new St Mirren manager, with his team hosting a United side who lost just twice away last season as they finished third in the SPL table and won the Scottish Cup.
Hibs are away to Motherwell - the team they pipped for fourth spot by a single point last season.
However, the Easter Road side host the first Edinburgh derby of the season on 6 November, with Hearts hosting the New Year's Day fixture before Hibs are at home for the third meeting on 2 April.
There will only be a fourth derby if both sides end up in the same half of the table when the league slits on 16 April for the final five matches of the season.
Kilmarnock also provide the opposition for Rangers at Ibrox in the final round of fixtures before the split, when Celtic are away to St Johnstone.
