Southwest Scotland and Northern Ireland
Why is denoted that way?
Does this mean is ancestry s from Scotland or from the Northern Ireland in the northern part of Ireland not what constitutes NI?

It is basically down to the analysis of the People of the British Isles project which was done a few years ago and is the basis for the LivingDNA test.

They identified a genetic cluster which you can see in the map as yellow circles in SW Scotland, Northern England and Northern Ireland.

My history knowledge of this area is limited, but isn't it both the Ulster plantations (from Britain to Ireland) and the earlier Gaelic settlement in Scotland (from Ireland to Britain), which connect these areas?

The earlier Ireland to Great Britain migration is reflected in the N Ire./W Scotland cluster on the map posted by avalon. The Plantation is reflected in the "yellow circles" of the N Ire./ S Scotland cluster.

Ok. That explains that.
