I’m wondering if flying Scotland - Dublin- USA is considered international and we will go through international terminal. I’m wondering how soon we should be at Edinburgh airport with a 9:30 AM (-ish) departure.
Scotland to Dublin is a short-haul flight so two hours is sufficient. There will be security but that's all - no passport stamping etc
If you are a US passport holder there will be a passport check on arrival in Dublin. At Dublin you make your way to pre-clearance for departures to the US
In case you aren't aware....Pre-clearance in Dublin means you will go through US immigration and customs there so when you arrive in the US you just walk off the plane and go. Like a domestic flight.
I'm wondering about our flights now post Brexit. We're flying from the U.S. to Amsterdam then from there to Glasgow. I assume we'll have to go through customs at both airports.
You will stay airside at AMS and not go through immigration. Make your way to the connecting flight.
You will go through immigration when you enter the UK at Glasgow.
Thanxs. I've had mixed experiences clearing passport control at Schiphol.

cj-traveler, I just spent 3 weeks in Scotland and flew from MSP to AMS to GLA and return. No customs at Schiphol - in fact, on the way over, there was no security check at all. I arrived at Gate D and flew out via KLM at Gate D.
Coming back I went to my gate at Schiphol and before we boarded, they came around to seated passengers at the gate to do passport checks. There was one young woman sitting near me who was picked for a random check. But no customs until I got to MSP.
