I think it was because Scotland was the place he used to keep all his wealth and so, when his ship was full of wealth he went to store it there.

I think it’s because Scotland was the nearest and probably the only place that he could reach easily from the Inchcape Rock. The rock was situated 11 Km off of the east coast of Scotland.
