Thank you for your question.
If there is no will then you and your brother would be due to inherit the estate. I suggest you call the Law Society of Scotland and ask for the name of a solicitor in Glasgow that can help you. Experts on this site aren't allowed to. You can also go to www.lawscot.org.uk and use the a Find a Solicitor tool for an executry specialist.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.

So if there was no will would a solicitor legally be able to help me n my wee brother or sister receive some of his estate? I don't know if he had a joint mortgage but firmly beleive that he wouldn't be daft enough to have a joint bank account, what will happen with his estate and final salary!?

If there is no will, the family would inherit the estate so, yes, you should see a solicitor. The girlfriend could go to court for a share so you have to see a solicitor immediately.
