There are faulting features on the openstreetmap layer which aren't in the British geological survey data in the Beinn Lubhean area (rest and be thankful, Scotland). Where is the faulting data source from, so i'm able to review the source?

Exactly where are you seeing it, and exactly what are you seeing?

This overpass query suggests very little in the UK. So does this broader query.

Those things are cliffs. You can use the "?" button at the right to click on the thing that you're interested in, and it'll return the feature directly from OSM, in this case https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/24728875.

That was added and edited by a user 14 years ago. They didn't write down at the time what source they used, and in the the last 14 years might have forgotten. Given the age, I suspect it'd be some sort of out of copyright map, perhaps aided by local knowledge.

They're still active in the project, so if you comment about one of the changesets, they will get that message - but as I suggested above they may well have forgotten the source used.
