This recipe is very close to Brewing Classic Styles - Scottish Export -80. I have changed the yeast and slightly modified the amounts of the specialty grains. This recipe mashes at a very high temperature, 158F. I typically achieve a mash effiency of 84%. With this recipe it drops down to about 76%. Because of this after the sparge is complete a gravity check indicates that my pre-boil gravity is 3 to 4 points low. I typically will adjust with DME to bring the pre-boil gravity up to 1.054. The finishing gravity is also relatively high 1.018 and returns a nice malty character which is what you want for this style.
