You can find whatever you want these days. However, everything is much more fragmented. There are still good places to go.

Sandy Bells in Edinburgh can still be great depending on the night but I'm not keen on the likes of the Royal Oak or Captain's bar.
Glasgow has a good thriving "young scene" but I'd suggest going to more rural areas.

I had a great time in Whitby just 3 months ago. No festival but some kind of session every night in the area. Also up North in Scotland there are many nicy cosy sessions but it usually means travelling. My bus pass came in handy a few weeks ago. :-)
