This link says that he is of “primarily Scottish heritage.” Though it also says that he was born in 1986, so…

Not a reliable source.

I find it believable that he has Welsh ancestry. My family are Welsh & he would fit in nicely in terms of his features & colouring (skin, hair, eyes etc.).
I’ve had it in my head since I first saw him, that he has Irish ancestry…but that might be because he played an Irish man in said first sighting! :3
