I am not Scottish, but the most prominent one I learned of in my line of work is Alexander Fleming for discovering (at first from accident I believe, then by experiementation) that mold prevented staph growth. He called the newly discovered substance penicillin. There are many famous inventors and scientists, however from Scotland, so perhaps do a Google search to find more.
