No the Volcano in the Scottish Capital has been extinct for many years even before man. The last eruption was between 350 and 400 million years ago. The vents inside are blocked and will not erupt again the future. If the Volcano was to erupt the vents would have to open up by earthquakes and new magma would take place under the volcano, but this won't happen as it is to cold, solidified and completey blocked. Yes there is a Volcano in Scotland not many people believe this, its in the heart of Edinburgh and its called Arthur's Seat, the ancient volcano of Scotland.
