Explosion in population makes ground fertile territory for a Yes vote

The High Street, pedestrianised outside the modern shopping centre at the top, down the ranks of bakers, pound shops and empty premises, could be almost anywhere in Scotland except for the splendid Guildhall half way down, now a pub, and the distinctive clock tower of Dunfermline City Hall at the foot. The nearby abbey is a reminder that the old Royal Burgh was for centuries the ancient capital of Scotland and its fortunes, civic and trade, have waxed and waned over the years.

Scotland: 8 reasons to be proud

Edinburgh hosts the largest performing arts festival in the world -- a summer event that seems to last longer than notoriously brief Scottish summers. Some Scots talk about the 14th-century Battle of Bannockburn like it happened last year, which is perhaps why it regularly gets re-enacted.
