Land of Scots

Kieran Dodds

A journey across Scotland and Scottish history ahead of the referendum on independence on 18 September 2014.~~A politically undecided Kieran Dodds traces the road to independence referendum through the relationship between the Scots and their land. The Scots are a nation of freedom fighters, religious reformers, political innovators, artistic leaders and scientific pioneers. The national identity is as complex and romanticised as the landscape in which it was forged. Scotland’s rugged coastline runs for over 2000 miles, punctuated by some 790 islands. The mainland measures 275 miles from north to south, 154 miles from east to west and rises to its peak at 1344m on Ben Nevis.~~

These physical boundaries are the context to understand and interpret the political landscapes that have formed over 300 years in Union with England where the past has been reinterpreted to new generations and times. On 18 September 2014, years of political campaign will end and residents will vote on the future of their nation. There is one question and only two options- 'Should Scotland be an independent country?'.
