The Scottish Emigrants database .... a searchable database of emigranst from Scotland to non-european destinations

Quote
The Scottish Emigration Database currently contains the records of over 21,000 passengers who embarked at Glasgow and Greenock for non-European ports between 1 January and 30 April 1923, and at other Scottish ports between 1890 and 1960. 

It was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and was based at the University of Aberdeen's AHRC Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies.

Records covering the first four months of 1923 have been deposited in the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) archive.

Looks like it is a temporary thing from this message on the Aberdeen University website -

"The Emigration website is currently undergoing an update and will be back online as soon as possible.
