Murray has returned to Glasgow this summer after a stint with Worcester, and is in line to win his 60th cap against the Springboks, with Scotland heading to South Africa after a narrow 21-19 victory over Argentina on Saturday.
Johannesburg-born Holmes joined Glasgow in 2012, qualifying for Scotland through his Peebles-born father, while Ashe is a Scotland Under-20s and Glasgow academy graduate.
Scotland boss Vern Cotter has called up the trio to offset the injury loss of back-rower David Denton, and the decision to send prop Gordon Reid home to rest.
