Scottish Gov webpage says 13 days for all livestock except pigs, for which it's 20.  Like England, they can still go direct to slaughter.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Not a regular fat sale but they could go to a "red slaughter market", where everything must go direct to slaughter from the sale.

13 days unless you have an isolation area.  We have, it's conveniently a field on the other side of the road. They are very understanding here so you can always phone SAMU to ask if you have an odd situation or are puzzled.
