    This one didn't work out

    as planned. And on the day of the result, I was pretty scathing about what that implied about the people of Scotland, but I'm a bit less harsh, today. Still very angry about the underhand tactics and the scaremongering and still very frustrated that people voted to opt for the...

    ... And proud of it! When I lived down in

    England for a while, and when I have travelled further afield, I've always made sure to take my kilt with me and wear it whenever possible - the warm reaction the vast majority of people give you when they realise you are a Scot always fills the heart with pride. Always will be...

    My maternal grandparents were from Scotland - part of clan McLaughlan. I also lived in Scotland for a few years in Helensburgh and went to the John Logie Baird Primary School but I can't say I am anything but distantly Scottish. My mum told me when I was a child that I would have...

    My family comes from the Graham

    or Graeme clan in Scotland, and I have a Scottish temper to match. They eventually moved to England before continuing on to the United States. But I don't care what you say, I will NEVER try haggis.

    Highlighting Scotland’s struggle

    for independence in 2014In 2014, I started seeing these little blue stickers all over the place – all proudly saying “Yes” over a Scottish flag. I quickly decided I wanted pictures of them. In five years, they’re going to be a part of history. Whether we...

    I think its shocking

    that some yes voters (not all) are calling no voters cowards, they should respect the fact that its what the majority of people wanted. If it was a yes vote that won I wouldn't call yes voters "cowards" and "fools", I would respect the decision of the majority!
