And if that's not the right year, that site has over 700 Scottish directories available, up to 1912.

Not all counties represented, but lots for Lanarkshire, Midlothian, Renfrewshire, Angus/Forfar, Aberdeenshire, also Perthshire, Ayrshire and even a few for Stirlingshire.

Thanks for that Dawn!

I believe these are all accessible through the National Library of Scotland, if, of course, you happen have a membership. (Which I do but was unaware of their existance).

No, you do not need to have a membership for NLS.

Archive.org has digitised them all for NLS, and NLS has made them all free online to look at, or download as .pdf files, via www.archive.org .  They are, of course, none of them under copyright.

Believe me - I'm overseeing cataloguing them all for our FHS library!
