Scottish independence

Scottish independence refers to the idea that Scotland should be an independent sovereign state separate from the British state.

Until the 1707 Act of Union Scotland was an independent country (see: Wars of Scottish Independence).

Scottish independence is supported by the Scottish National Party, Scottish Socialist Party and the Scottish Green Party, as well as by a number of independent members of the Scottish Parliament.
