What would it mean for the rest of the UK if Scotland became fully independent? Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil. One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!
sean connery wants an independent scotland but he doesnt mind? When he starts paying tax - in Scotland or England - I might take some notice of what that unctuous hypocrite has to say. It's easy supporting an independent Scotland when you're a multi-millionaire living in the Cayman Islands. When an independent Scotland becomes bankrupt, he'll continue to be a multi-millionaire living in the Cayman Islands. Any Scots whose longing for independence is based on Sean Connery's support, deserve all that's coming to them.
Ferry from Scotland to Iceland and Greenland? Smyril Lines used to stop in the Shetland Islands (Scotland) on their way from Denmark to Iceland but they no longer have any UK stops so it is not possible to take a ferry from Scotland to Iceland. If you are set on taking a ferry (I would love it) then you need to start your journey in Denmark and go to Iceland via the Faroe Islands. I'm not aware of any ferries to Greenland however there are cruise ships that go if that is what you are interested in. http://http://

October 2014 Scotland votes narrowly for independence from the UK.? Scotland could also be given an EU referendum after the independence one. But that's something the people themselves will need to ask for - if they want it. Of course Shetland could become independent. They might not have as much control over the oil as you seem to think. But it still might be a good option for them to take if Scotland as a whole rejects Independence from the rest of the UK.

Where can I see Shetland ponies on Unst? I will be spending a couple days on Unst on the Shetland Islands next year. My wife is very keen on seeing some Shetland ponies, and I am wondering how to go about this.My research seems to indicate that Unst is a good place for this. Furthermore it seems that they are roaming freely and one can find them grazing at the roadsides. Now, by randomly looking through some Google Streetview, all I can find is a lot of sheep.So my question is, how do I go about to find Shetland ponies on Unst? Is there a high probability of us finding them at the roadside without looking for them or are there specific places (farms, parks) where one would have to go to find them?
