Same design was also used by Boer War era Royal Scottish Reserve Regiment.

It is also a very common brooch worn by men and women alike of the late Victorian period.

It doesn't look quite right for a London Rifles of Royal Scottish Reserve to me, the leaves aren't full enough. Can't find my example to photograph as a comparison right now but reference Gaylor plate 53.
What size is it? Looks more like the style of a Scots Guards shoulder title device.
Cheers,
Alex

I've seen them sold as 9th (Scottish) Division arm badges in the past.
