While Scotland has gotten and lost independence throughout history, most of that faded when the Scottish monarchy and English monarchy had someone that became heir to both thrones. Eventually forming Great Britain which also took the lands of Ireland and Wales. Most of Ireland became Independent, but Scottish voters are apparently getting to vote a little on the issue, and with support for being an independent country being a tad more popular. If most Scottish citizens want their country to be a real country, then it should. Though I'm sure it will still take many more years, but I hope it's done peacefully and democratically.
