History

Scottish Independence

Despite Scotland overall voting "Yes", in favour of independence, Orkney, the Outer Hebrides and the Shetland Islands all had come in the vast majority against Independence, and the next day called for separate referenda for their status to be held. A week later, on the 26th, three separate referenda were held: the Northern Isles both voted overwhelmingly not to join Scotland, whilst the Outer Hebrides narrowly voted to join Scotland.

On the 15th March 2015, Scotland formally left the United Kingdom, and Orkney and Shetland for transferred to the Northern Isles Dependency, with Roderick Campbell becoming Lieautenant Governor.
