The 'Scots' were those who came over from Dalriata in Ireland in the 
5th century, one of which was Ferus MacErc.  They eventually took 
over the Picts, original inhabitants of Scotland then called Alba - 
(thus Albion) and the name "Scots" was adopted.

One thing is for sure - They did not have any mode of transport made 
by British Leyland
