I'm probably asking a daft question but it's not the first time. If I order one of the above scope mounts from EBay (imported from the USA) as the price including P&P is half that advertised from UK sites, is there any dodgy import regulations that I could fall foul of?

VAT and import duty most likely.

The price was from EBay's UK site and in Stirling. Would that make a difference? Would VAT and import duty be included in the stated price?

No,

If it's coming from the US then VAT, Customs check possible at cost and as Dromia said £8 non handling charge from the royal mail.
