Both the DOST and the SND can be found here:

"The Dictionary of the Scots Language (DSL) comprises electronic editions of
the two major historical dictionaries of the Scots language: the Dictionary
of the Older Scottish Tongue (DOST) and the Scottish National Dictionary
(SND). DOST contains information about Scots words in use from the twelfth
to the end of the seventeenth centuries (Older Scots); and SND contains
information about Scots words in use from the eighteenth century to the
present day (modern Scots) ... "

While both original dictionaries are subsumed there under the DSL, they're
separately searchable, if necessary.
