How long is the secondary shelf life on home made Scotch Eggs I had them in my bag for around 1.5-2hrs before placing in the fridge?

If it was unsafe to eat things like Scotch Eggs if they've been out of a fridge for 2 hours or so then everyone who's eaten at a buffet would have food poisoning !

You EAT them before 1-2 hours.
If they've been out that long and haven't been eaten, then you throw them away .. you do NOT put them in the fridge. The bacteria they have accumulated during those 1-2 hours will continue to grow sitting in the fridge and can make you sick if you eat them.

Honestly, I think you're pushing your luck eating them now.
Keep in mind if food is kept at the wrong temperature (meaning not hot enough pr cold enough), it's going to spoil pretty quickly. I'd polish those off tonight if I were you- if you think they were hot for a good part of that time.
