Interesting, in Ysearch, you do have a 24/25 match with a McWhirter, and a number of of 12/12 matches with McWhirters (and a few matches with other surnames as well). There can be no doubt you are related to the hg I1c McWhirters, question is whether the connection is within a genealogically meaningful timeframe.
If you are going to pursue the McWhirter connection, you really need to get at least one or two of the McWhirters to upgrade to 37 markers, to compare against your Spencer that had the 37 marker test. A 37 marker comparision will give you a much more accurate indication of whether there is a connection within a meaningful timeframe. A good next step would be to contact the group admin for the McWhirter project (and the I1c Spencers might want to consider joining the McWhirter project as a second project).
Based on your close matches, the odds are high that your Spencers came from Scotland.
