Have hit a brick wall regarding my grandfather - have information about him when he married my grandmother in Port Adelaide South Australia and the birth of his three sons and then nothing more.   So can supply a bit of information about that time but know nothing else.

Have you looked in Scotland’s People? Your grandfather’s profile does not have a lot of information, but perhaps if you have some other family information you may have enough to make a connection.

See https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

Thanks - but I have looked in Scotland's People. I have been trying for years to find some connection - my husband now has dementia so I am doing this for him as after all his grandfather is our sons great grandfather.  I have looked in so many places but nothing is connecting.   I have also now added a bit more info in Comments on Norman Macleod's page.
Do you have his death certificate?  If so, does it note the parents?  If not, have you considered buy it?
We do not have a death certificate as we do not know where or when he died.   That would have been of some assistance if we did but nothing seems to be known of him after he fathered his youngest son in 1909.

Thank you for that - I had already seen this but that is not him.  What I have is an ad placed in the Victorian Police Gazette in about 1919 from his wife looking for her husband who she had last heard about working on a coastal ship in Australia as a ship's carpenter and she also gives a good description of him.
