Scotland & Northern Ireland are part of the UK, so you dial +44, followed by the number. If the number starts with a leading zero, drop it.
Ireland is it's own country, so you dial +353 instead of +44, the rest of the rules are the same. Note that you may not be able to call a UK number from Ireland and vice versa unless you add Expanded International roaming (the service that allows calls to a third country to be made when roaming internationally, besides calls to the country you're roaming in and back to US).
