Scottish law I have just seen my mother´s will - my mother

Resolved Question:

Scottish law
I have just seen my mother´s will - my mother has left the house and contents to my sister. In Scottish law is it legal to leave all the house contents to one person. I have been left some money but was hoping for a small momento.

House contents comprise moveable property and as such are subject to legal rights, in other words their value would form part of the legal rights fund in the event of such a claim. However, it was perfectly legal to leave the contents to your sister. It would be her decision as to whether to share any part of that with others.
