Update: Note that Scotlands People has now added "Civil Partnerships", "Divorces" and "Dissolutions" to their page for "Statutory Registers".
I see that Scotlands People now has some Church Registers from other Presbyterian Churches as well as the Church of Scotland and Catholic Churches.
This includes (copied from their site):
Have you asked the Cameron Highlanders Museum? They have an archive.

See HERE for details.
