Brittain started his career Livingston in 2002, during his time at Livingston, he was loaned out to Raith Rovers in 2003.

In July 2006, despite interest from French clubs Montpellier and Racing Club Strasbourg, Brittain chose to sign for Scottish Premier League side St. Mirren on a free transfer. Brittain was released by St. Mirren in May 2008 and signed for Ross County in June 2008.

Brittain captained Ross County through victories in The Scottish Cup against SPL sides Hibs and Celtic. The famous 20 victory over Celtic at Hampden Park in the semi-final earned Ross County a place in the 2010 Scottish Cup Final, the club's first ever major final, which County eventually lost 30 to Dundee United.

During the 200910 season, Brittain signed a new contract with the club. In the 201112 season, and into the first six games of 201213, Brittain captained Ross County through a post war Scottish record of 40 league games undefeated, over a full calendar year.

This run helped Ross County win the 201112 Scottish First Division by a record margin of 24 points and promotion to the Scottish Premier League for the first time in the club's history. Brittain would describe as his "greatest day of my career". He would sign a one-year contract with the club.

In the 201213 season, Brittain would score the club's first goal in the top-flight, as Ross County drew 11 with Celtic and scored another in the next match, giving Ross County their first win in the SPL, against Dundee.
