Thanks Joe, they are part of my family tree, the big problem I have been having is with James Arnot, I cannot find his birth year I have evidence that he died in 1820 at 103 years old, that means his birth year should be 1717 but have been unable to confirm it, anyway thanks again for filling in some blanks.

Take care,
Dave.

hi pal, have you tried the scottishpeople's website?

if you go to births and baptisms and put in your james from 1/1/1710 to 31/12/1720 and all parishes,  it comes up with 12

maybe worth a look
