There is a note from 1635 in the travel journal written by Charles Ogier (a French diplomat) that a Scottish regiment serving in Prussia had red clours with a blue field near the pole, in this the St. Andrew cross in white. But there is no unit name given.

Also one of my Cossacks will be Scottish as well, a Cameron, though I don't know how much he'll look it, since he seems to have been pretty assimilated into the Cossack lifestyle... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maksym_Kryvonis.
