I would suspect more likely Strathearn, if it is Scottish.

I think Ray's point about the base, with its wide, rough ground basal ring, is about right.

I don't see any specifically Scottish canes in there. Although there is one with pale blue over yellow with an orange centre, I don't think it really matches any of the Ysart canes I know of in those colours.
