This Scottish lay is that given in Chambers Encyclopaedia (1891). The companion Upper Case lay is Scottish Upper, and the empty case configuration is Scottish Lower.

Note the Scottish case has, in the top row, one wide k and g box, whereas the English Lower has four boxes. Also in the 4th (i.e. 3rd main) row, there is a single y box, and there are four boxes where w and , would go in an English case. The 4m and 5m boxes are for mid and thin spaces, respectively.
