Probably the best thing you could do is buy some credits, at reasonable cost, from scotlandspeople and check his birth record, the 1911 census entry and look for a potential marriage. Otherwise, anyone helping you would have to use credits they had purchased, as unfortunately it is not a subscription site.

As an indicator, the free index search only throws up two William McLeish births in 1901, and of those, one is:
