Thank you for your question.
If there is no will the procedure is that you lodge a Petition with the court to be appointed executor dative. You can then write to banks and insurance companies to find out what your father had. You can then apply for Confirmation and I gather the estate and distribute it in accordance with the law.
You will need a solicitor and, whilst experts on JustAnswer aren't allowed to make recommendations, you can go to www.lawscot.org.uk for a recommendation.
