Hello, this is Jim and welcome to JustAnswer.

I am one of the legal experts on the site and I am a dual-qualified solicitor (UK & Republic of Ireland)

Thank you for the question, I am reviewing the details now and I will aim to resolve it as quickly as possible for you.

Sorry to hear of the issue.

If the Police haven't done anything then it's possible to apply to the civil court for an injunction (known as an "interdict" in Scotland).

It would be a case of applying to the court for a non-harassment order to stop the person who is doing this to you and your husband.

An application to the Sheriff court will be required for this - if granted then the order would be served on the harasser. And if they breached that, it is a criminal offence meaning a prison term of up to 5 years (including a fine).

The best way to secure an order is to use a law firm (we are not a law firm - we are an internet forum) - I will set out a few choices for you as follows :
