I cannot find a marriage in Scotland for this couple.
Tried many variants without a match??

BMD info for Scotland is on Scotland's people website.

It is not a subscription will have to purchase credits (£7.00 for 30)

BUT...........there are much stricter limitations on access to Scottish info than to that for England/Wales.........look at the SP home page for details

Also - no offence - may I ask if you actually mean 'siblings' when referring to this couple? Or do you, perhaps, mean their children?

Welcome to the boards Tomas.

Do you have their marriage record? If they married in Scotland this has both parents' details.

Might this be him do you think? I wonder how you know where he was born?
