Probably the most useful online resource for this kind of thing is the Dictionary of Scottish Architects, but it can often be limited by the sources they work from - so it might just give something as vague as "housing scheme" and a date, but not the exact location. And large developments for local authorities will often just state that the architect is the local authority itself. GIve it a go anyways, you can search either for a building or an architect:http://www.scottisharchitects.org.uk
I know the kind of tenements you mean, though - my gran stayed in an example in an infamous development in Cambuslang which went by the curious name of the Caledonian Circuit.
The basic tenement with a communal close design was surprisingly persistent in Scottish local authority housing, seems to have lasted right up until the 1950s (such as another infamous Cambuslang example, Cairns, dating from around 1952) when more modern tower blocks and decked access flats started to take over.
Gets me to thinking about other more typically Scottish municipal housing types from the 20th Century - I grew up in a classic 4-in-a-block from the 1930s, which were both comfortable and aesthetically inoffensive - and they often had huge gardens too, which would put many a modern 250k private house to shame!
There's also the temporary wooden housing which still exists in small corners, and into the 1970s, we have those white roughcast terraced houses, favoured in new towns and the like - I stay in one of these now, built in 1975 by the SSHA.
Sadly, the 80s seemed to see the rise of the imported English brick, and houses across the UK generally became all generic and much of a muchness.
