Scottish births/marriages!?!

Hi all!
Just traced a branch of my tree back to Scotland and Im having trouble finding a particular person.

I wondered if one of you lovely people might have access to the Scottish birth/marriage records? I need to look up a couple of bits!

Any help would be brilliant!!!

Thank you, Elliot.

What you seek can be found on the site Scotlandspeople. Unfortunately it is not a subscription site but its records can be accessed on a pay per view basis via the purchase of credits.

Credits cost £7.00 for 30

Lots of free Scottish records on familysearch - upto approx 1875 for some areas. Ancestry has transcriptions of all censuses expcept 1911. If you get stuck, give some details and perhaps somebody can help.
