For 2020 it was 39, but quite possible that is going to reduce, as the Scottish Government are keen on offering places to Home (Scottish) applicants

will it be really difficult to get in then as an RUK student? I got 3190 Band 1 in UCAT, will it be enough to get an interview do you think?

More than enough. Cut offs in past years have been <2600 (though not seen last or this year's figures yet as they will not release until about November for that year).
They generally have a good interview to offer ratio

is it best to apply with "no preference" for the Scottish/Ruk clinical years to maximise chances of acceptance?

Ah thank you. That's a shame as it would have been nice to know how much it had gone down by! I can't decide if it's a waste of one of my 4 choices, although I would really like to go there.

Does the program allow doing the foundation training in the UK? It was mentioned in its website that there are no official routes but I am wondering what it is really like in practice. I also heard some people saying the program has changed recently to allow students to do foundation in the UK.

Was everyone’s thoughts on applying to here as the course is quite traditional, and requires a move to another uni ?

I personally find the idea of moving to another uni quite exciting because not only will you meet so many people but you also get the experience of 2 different uni’s! Well that’s just my thoughts and opinions anyway.
