My notes suggest its: 94% pale malt (MO or GP or another similar pale), 3% crystal 120L and 3% roasted barley. Probably the keys to the brew is using a small single dose of low AA% hops somewhere earlier or at 60 minutes in a 4 hour boil. That's right, a 4 hour boil. They may not also use the Scottish yeast. You could always email the brewery and see if they open the kimono for you, or, offer some suggestions.
I initial research didn't include much information, so I was just taking a shot at a grain bill based on the description. I have since learned the beer is intended to be a "Scottish 60 Shilling" and since the brewer Kristen England seems to prefer brewing historically and stylistically accurate recipes...your suggestion is probably closer.
