In early 2005 some rumours surfaced in the news (The Scotsman) that BMI were to start flying direct between Munich and Scotland. Apparently these flights would begin in the summer of 2005 but this flight route was cancelled.

Airports in Scotland
The main international airports in Scotland are: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Prestwick. There are also national airports for internal Great Britain flights only.
Flights to Newcastle
Newcastle is in northern England and less than 100 miles short of the Scottish border. It might suit your itinery to fly direct there, and then take the train up to Scotland. HLX
fly to Newcastle once a week.
Flights from Frankfurt
Frankfurt is 2 to 4 hours away from Munich on the train. Some airlines fly direct from there to Scotland (not sure which though). Take care if your itinery stats "Frankfurt Hahn". The "Hahn" airport is actually about 2 hours on the bus out of Frankfurt.
Flights from Salzburg
There are rumours of flights direct from Salzburg to Scotland. Perhaps with Ryanair. No confirmation of this though.
