Scotty was born in 2222, McCoy in 2227, according to multiple sources.
Depending on which source you believe, Kirk was born in 2230 or 2233.
At most, Scotty could only be 10-11 years older than Kirk, or perhaps only 7-8 years older.
McCoy was at max 6 years older than Kirk, at minimum 2-3 years older.
Correct re: Scott being about 44 in the first season of TOS (circa 2266).
