Hi Margaret, My name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you. When a battery quartz movement goes bad it is cheaper to replace the movement than to get it repaired. The bad thing about these movements is that they are encased in plastic and you can not open them to work on the movement and if you bring the clock in for repair that is what they do. To save my customers money from me servicing there clock when they bring them into my shop with the same problem you are having I recommend replacing the movement themselves it is easy to do and very inexpensive alot cheaper than a repair shop to do it. You can order your part from one of the best companies listed below. The phone works the best for ordering your parts. Just give them the make and model of your clock and the movement number which should be located on the back or side of the movement. They will ship the movement right to your home. If you do elect to bring the clock in for repair which I don't recommend If you want I can find a clock repair company in your area just let me know your location in Scotland and by what major cities and I'll find a few in your area.Thanks Mike
