I too tried to find ScotsFind and while I was able to open the archived version, I wasn’t able to open any of the databases

I did, however, find two important ones at another site:

Edinburgh, Scotland Marriage Register, 1595 - 1800.   A register of the marriages in Edinburgh during the periods above. 
http://robertson-gorrie.com/documents/marriages.pdf   7.44 MB

 Volume for 1701 - 1750 has not been merged with the other two volumes, but is present as a separate database and is included in this folder.
Updated:  27 Sep 2004;  Volume for 1701 - 1750 updated: 19 Oct 2004

It is a pity that the main Scotsfind.org site no longer seems to be available. It is a bit of a hit and miss affair with the wayback service on http://web.archive.org/web/20080602101740/http://www.scotsfind.org/   Sometimes, I get in no problem, other times, like you say, you get to the main index but cannot access the datafiles. You also get the 'failed connection' message other times, which doesn't let you access anything at all.

Some of these databases are available, like you have found, separately. Apart from the ones you mention, you can also access the St Cuthbert's Churchyard - Monumental Inscriptions from here http://waeve.co.uk/genealogy/sourcefiles/St.Cuthbert%27s_Cemetry.pdf
