Ancestry only have transcripts of Scottish Records no images, something they are very careful to downplay in their publicity.
The only place to find images is on Scotlands People and I gather they are rather parsimonious in the views of 1939 Register they supply, restricting them to individual entries.

And I should not moan about paying 225 00 per year so that I cannot access ancestry at certain times...... NOT a moan.. so dont shout at me...  just a fact.. I know that this weekend it will be hopeless to attempt a quick search....

I am not being mean :) :)  just sometimes a little narky :) thats a good word  is it real...

No Free access is a great thing but I would rather they knocked me a bit off now and then.. I am too dumb for discounts.. always miss them somehow..

Go ahead lovely people ignore the old lady moaning and enjoy your free weekend and if I can help I will..

Xinia,
I know how you feel, I was the same when I had a sub and didn't get an extension for the free days and the inconvenience of slow searches.

I am now with FindMyPast who do extend my sub for free days but I do take advantage of Ancestry as they have good coverage of Wigan PRs and I have relations in the Antipodes so use the free access to search those records.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you. ;D ;D ;D

I have a Scottish ancestor who moved to Co Durham circa 1745-1760. I have traced his family on ScotlandsPeople rather than Anc. Ancestry does have good Huguenot records which has come in handy for my Huguenot lot.

I just wish they gave the UK annual sub users a free worldwide access for a few days.
Researching:

LONDON, Coombs, Roberts, Auber, Helsdon, Fradine, Morin, Goodacre
DORSET Coombs, Munday
NORFOLK Helsdon, Riches, Harbord, Budery
KENT Roberts, Goodacre
SUSSEX Walder, Boniface, Dinnage, Standen, Lee, Botten, Wickham, Jupp
SUFFOLK Titshall, Frost, Fairweather, Mayhew, Archer, Eade, Scarfe
DURHAM Stewart, Musgrave, Wilson, Forster
SCOTLAND Stewart in Selkirk
USA Musgrave, Saix
ESSEX Cornwell, Stock, Quilter, Lawrence, Whale, Clift
OXON Edgington, Smith, Inkpen, Snell, Batten, Brain

My father's paternal side started in Scotland so I have used Scotlands People, I may even have a few credits left.
However they left c1850 and going back beyond 1840 proved impossible. So I don't visit SP these days.
If you want the whole sorry story see Brickwall? No! A concrete Bunker!.
