On the contrary it would be possible for Ni to remain part of the UK while entering a customs union with Ireland.... we already have precedence for it. The real problem is the Spain would most likely demand the same for Gibraltar and no doubt the SNP would be looking for something similar.
So far, at least in recent decades, if Gibraltar has been cut off from Spain, the obstruction was largely of Spanish making, not of British. Not being allowed to obstruct the border would deprive Spain of a valuable means of annoying the British. I don't think they would want that.
