The Scottish Referendum on Independence will be on September 18th. There has been a long lead up to the vote and even here in the US there have been lots of articles. There are so many issues that the Scots have to consider from currency, to EU membership, to UK defense bases, to oil and more. It certainly is something that anyone visiting Scotland in the next few weeks needs to be aware of. Here are some articles that might help in understanding the issues and what people are thinking. Everyone seems to have a say....These are for the most part US interpretations--maybe MC and others can add local links.
