    before VS ever

    Thank you for your codial replies.

    Are there any differences?

    1. Have you been to Scotland before?

    2. Have you ever been to Scotland?

    Thank you so much.

    2 could stand alone - as a conversation opener for example.

    1 is more likely to be a response to somebody who has just said 'I'm going to Edinburgh for a week'.
