Not really. The weapon that will be fired at an enemy is in a submarine at sea which is what they will be focussing on. The storage and repair facilities can be destroyed with conventional weapons since there is no reason why you have to target a nuclear weapon with a nuclear weapon. The warheads themselves are also designed not to detonate from nuclear or conventional explosions in their proximity though you could have a dirty bomb effect if they did fizzle.

The civilian reactors at Hunterston and Torness are probably a bigger risk to most people in Scotland than Faslane.

Given that Chernobyl caused Scottish farmers problems for years I think you'd still be in trouble if someone nuked England.
