Have you ever visited the National Archives of Scotland website? They have a whole section devoted to Record Guides. The directory covers adoption to wills and testaments and everything in between.
They provide a history of the record and places to look for more information. Those places could be within their own records or other archives and libraries. There are also suggestions for further reading on the topic of interest.
This was my first stop when I was looking for information on a Scottish divorce. Here I found a history of divorce in Scotland and they provided the information you would need to find a divorce record. At this point they also pointed out what kind of research services they are able to provide.
