It follows a major police investigation into Amber’s disappearance and death.
The 16-year-old’s body was discovered in the Lanarkshire town’s Cazdow Glen on November 28.
A force spokesman said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a second man has been arrested and charged in connection with the death of Amber Gibson.
“The 43-year-old man is due to appear at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Wednesday January 5 2022.
“The body of Amber, 16, was discovered near to Cadzow Glen around 10.10am on Sunday, November 28, 2021.
“A 19-year-old man has already been arrested, charged and appeared in court in connection with the death.”
Amber’s brother Connor Gibson, 19, appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court last month charged with sexual assault and murder.
He was also accused of attempting to pervert the course of justice.
Gibson, also of Hamilton, made no plea when he appeared via videolink and was remanded in custody.
Amber went missing on Friday, November 26, after leaving her home in the town’s Hillhouse area.
The last confirmed sighting of the teenager was in Cazdow Street, close to a bridge, just before 10pm that same night.
She never returned home and the alarm was raised early the following day.
Her body was discovered shortly after 10am on Sunday, November 28, around 200 yards from where she was last seen.
We previously told how friends and fellow pupils released balloons in her memory during a vigil in the town’s Chatelherault Country Park.
Pals and locals also placed flowers and notes at a makeshift shrine.
Amber’s family recently paid tribute to the teen on what would have been her 17th birthday.
Loved ones shared their heartbreak as they faced the milestone without the alleged murder victim.
Relatives and friends wished Amber a “happy heavenly birthday” on Saturday.
