Listen to Billy Connolly or Craig Ferguson if you want to know what a real Scottish accent sounds like. Whatever accent Jimmy Doohan was doing, it sure as hell wasn't Scottish.
I don't know, Ferguson sounds very hybridised to me, he's clearly lived in the States for years and its rubbed off on his voice, resulting in a slightly odd accent that I'd say sounds less convincingly Scottish than Doohan.

But then, real life accents often are much more bizarre than anything you'd ever hear in films or telly.
