Thank you for your question.
This seems to be a fall out between siblings arising from the fact that your parents gave you some money. That isn't something that anyone other than the family can sort out.
What is it that you want to sort out from a legal point of view? Did your mother remove you as attorney or not?
What other questions would you like answered?

Thanks for responding. If you are concerned that your mother was made to sign something that she didn't understand because of her Alzheimer's you can contact the investigations department of the Office of the Public Guardian in Scotland.

I hope that this helps.
