Though the official target is just over 50% by 2030 all the signs reported in previous pieces today suggest this is a modest target and that 100% renewables energy production in Scotland is feasible by 2030. See:

The Scottish Government is clearly right behind this trend and is to invest a further £43 million matched by another minimum £43 million from the private sector to projects such as:
‘an innovative local energy system on Fair Isle, an energy storage project in Shetland, low-carbon heat networks in Dundee, Stirling, Clydebank and Glenrothes and the installation of a heat pump on the River Clyde to serve the Gorbals area.’
