Hiya, I'm just going to pop this in the Politics forum for you as you're more likely to get a response there.

damn, that's a mean question for an AS paper!
the only distinctions that come to mind is that
1) the UK executive has the power to enforce legislation in all countries of the UK (scotland included) while the scottish executive can only enforce legislation in scotland specifically
2) scotland has limited executive abilities, as it's parliament has limited legislative abilities; it can execute limited social and economic (and judicial, sometimes, as they've got a different system to us) policies e.g. some taxation policies, tuition fees, etc, but it doesn't have sovereignty like the UK parliament does in the sense that it can make any law it wants and the UK executive can enforce
3) the scottish executive has no royal prerogative powers, while the UK executive does (e.g. it can enforce measures without its parliament's consent)
4) the scottish executive has no influence in international affairs (e.g. foreign policy, defence, treaties, etc) while the UK executive does

hopefully that's some help
