This information is not held centrally by the Scottish Government. The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) publish annual incident statistics on deliberate primary and secondary fires (Tables 12-13b refer) on its website - http://www.firescotland.gov.uk/about-us/fire-and-rescue-statistics.aspx .
