Thanks for your question. An appeal must be lodged within 7 days so you will have to get the appeal into the court today. An appeal against conviction is called an appeal by Stated Case and you have to fill in the form for an application for a stated case and get it to the court before 4pm today. https://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/rules-and-practice/forms/criminal-procedure-forms/appeals-from-summary-proceedings
