Plurality then. And they do run things over there.
Furthermore the people who vote Labour, Lib Dems and Green Party wouldn't welcome them either. Between them they represent a large majority of Scottish people.
Ulster unionists are an unloved bunch due to their hard line image. A bit unfair on liberal moderate unionists I know, but they are out-shouted by the extremist loud mouths.
At the end of the day the Scottish parliament does not have immigration controls. I understand your point and Im not trying to disagree with you mate, but I honestly believe that they would settle over there for the very simple fact that it's their ancestral home and they have great links.
You are right that the SNP wouldnt be great fans of them, but they still have the legal right to settle in Scotland as British/eu citizens. Therefore the objection of some nationalists wouldn't be able to stop them. Their culture while outmoded is much more common to Scotland than England. They fly the saltire of Scotland in loyalist ghettoes. Their accents are quite similar along with slang. They call themselves and their language Ulster-Scots. These huns have grown up their entire lives flying union jacks and supporting the queen and Britain. I have no doubt they would go over to Britain if there was reunification, and most would settle in Scotland specifically. The huge surplus of staunch unionists would likely have a major political effect on the country as well imo.
