Maybe his job took him to Scotland - do you know his occupation?

Many thanks for the all this information.  It seems quite likely that the whole family were heading for Fort George near Inverness and staying at the Bridge of Tilt Inn when his wife went into labour.

Almost certainly because of his Army Commission in the Royal Cameronian Rifles?
