You'll need to buy some credits for Scotland's People http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

It's not a subscription site.

And you haven't given any details.

They are £7 for 30 - but you could have looked that up on the link.

You can do a free search and can sometimes work out what you're looking for if you manipulate the search results.

If the birth is within the last 100 years you will have to order the certificate. You will not be able to view / download it online.

Statutory registration didn't begin until 1855 in Scotland. Scottish certificates give more information than English ones.
