No way have I read enough Scots lit to have an opinion on who's "best",
but I really like Alasdair Gray and James Kelman in the Scottish and
Extremely Scottish divisions, respectively. I'll qualify the Kelman
recommendation with the caveat that I've only read one of his books
(_Greyhound For Breakfast_).

On the American side, I think Kelly Link is doing work that ranks with
Wolfe's best.
