Not sure about deaths in Tenerife,but you might find out some dates/info if she left a will.

Make sure you have the page 1996 to present open.

You could apply online for a death crtificate from Registry office of Santa Cruz de Tenerife
https://www.certificadodefuncion.org/certificado-de-defuncion/

Google translated - https://www.certificadodelregistrocivil.es/certificados-registro-civil-tenerife

Have you also cehecked if the death was registered as an overseas uk death - they could have done that, but would have cost extra. Not sure if it also applied to Scotish people though.

See https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/research/guides/birth-death-and-marriage-records/minor-records
and https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/research/guides/birth-death-and-marriage-records/statutory-registers-of-births-deaths-and-marriages

Consular deaths are included in the Scottish statutory deaths indexes BUT deaths that occurred less than 50 years ago are not published online. You would need to check the printed index.
