Scotland going it alone?

I see that Alex Salmond and British prime minister David Cameron have signed an agreement paving the way for the possible break up of the United Kingdom.  The Edinburgh Agreement was signed by the prime minister and the first minister at the Scottish government headquarters at St Andrew’s House.  The deal sets out the terms for a ground-breaking vote in 2014 on Scottish independence.

I've been watching a weekly programme on channel 12 (NZ) about Scotland's history.  What a tumultous history Scotland has endured.  Our own McPikes fought at Culloden on the side of 'Bonnie Prince Charlie', before escaping to Ireland.

I wonder what independence now would mean for Scotland.
