The Open University gives a brief outline here:

http://www.open.ac.uk/study/credit-t...iversity-study

There are more detailed descriptions here:

http://www.accreditedqualifications....-transfer.html

There is a comment here:

http://www.accreditedqualifications....work-scqf.html

that a doctoral level is 12 under the Scottish system and 8 under the English system, making this a useful rule of thumb to compare qualifications.

This database says it allows you to calculate your Scottish credits:

This booklet is supposed to help people wanting to transfer to other EU countries:
