Scottish death records

I am researching the Scottish element of my family tree. I have no problem finding births and census records but I am struggling with death records, can anyone recommend a good site for this? Preferably a free site if poss!

In all honesty the best site is Scotlandspeople, which I'm sure you will know is not free.

Depending on what era you are reseaching has quite a lot of Scottish records but are mainly older ones.

Deceased on line have added a number of burial records - you can search and see d.o.d and/or d.o.burial for free, but have to purchase credits to view the original entry.

I don't think that FamilySearch has any Scottish death records at all.
