Thank you for your question.
There's no registry of wills in Scotland. If the estates were wound up and Confirmation (probate) applied for the local court will have a copy of each will.
If not you have to write to the solicitors in the local area and you can also place an advert in the Journal of the Law Society of Scotland.
Happy to discuss further.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
