There is a basically genealogical site online, Scottish Documents, with copies of Scottish wills up to 1900 and a search service for others you can order. The site shows some wills in the original form, as graphics.

Act: formal decision
addettit: indebted to, owing
aliment: a maintenance
allenarly: only, solely or exclusively
