I asked some friends how they'd say "zombie" in a Scottish accent, and the general consensus was that it wouldn't be all that different to how we normally say it.
I tried looking up zombie in Wikipedia and seeing if there was a Scots version of the page, but there isn't. Neither is there a Scottish Gaelic version. Of course those are different languages and may not be indicative of how a Scottish person would say "zombie" in English, but I was curious anyway.
So. Unless some Scottish readers want to contribute an opinion, I'll leave this topic there.
UPDATE: Reader Graham writes:
I've lived in Scotland for 42 years, and, yes, basically Zombie in Scots is "Zombie". Maybe a little more emphasis on the first syllable, and the final vowel a little more guttural, but really very little different than other English speakers. A really thick accent might get to "ZOMbeh" I suppose.
