Fees for UK passport holder living in Switzerland wanting to study in Scotland or England
Residence is the most important criterion in determining fees status, not nationality. How long have the family been living in Switzerland?
You should check with SAAS to find out whether she will be eligible for the EU fee in Scotland. There are issues around dual nationality (UK/EU):
For England, the rules are that you should have been resident in the UK for the three years immediately prior to starting university to qualify for Home fees.
The UKCISA website:

I hope this helps.
