Arnott joined Queen's Park from Pollokshields Athletic in 1882 and remained with the Glasgow club until his retirement in the mid-1890s. However, he occasionally played as a guest for several other clubs including Northern Irish side Linfield – for whom he won an Irish Cup medal, Kilmarnock, Newcastle West End, Notts County, St Bernard's, Third Lanark, Celtic and Corinthian. He also coached the young players at Queen's Park.
Arnott was capped 14 times by Scotland between 1883 and 1893. He also appeared in 10 consecutive matches against England, a Scottish record. The Scottish Football Association honoured Walter by presenting him with a special International Cap to commemorate his achievement.
