Welcome to Sunny Scotland


In autumn 2014, the people of Scotland will vote in a referendum to decide the future of their country.  The referendum will ask whether Scotland should become an independent country.

This site collects together leaflets, articles and other resources that you might find useful whether you are thinking about independence, or discussing it with others.

These have been designed to be easy to print and share.  We should make sure people have access to the information they need to make an informed decision about Scotland’s future.


The McCrone report – an embarrassment of riches?

The McCrone report – An embarrassment of riches?

The McCrone report was written in 1974 by a leading government economist.  It concludes that Scotland would be better off economically as an independent country, rather than continuing as part of the United Kingdom.

This PDF leaflet summarises the main conclusions of the report and puts it into the context of today’s Scotland.
