Any help would be appreciated
On your questions regarding Scotland's options for leaving the UK.
"Wee Crankie", as we like to call her south of the border, has already gone over to Brussels to trudge the corridors of power asking if she can start talks for an independent Scotland to join / remain in the EU once it has voted out of the UK. Unfortunately all the doors are locked as she approaches and when she knocks they shout "Gan with ye, woman!"
She could have saved herself a lot of time and effort by first visiting the EU Parliament Visitor's Center. Right in the entrance there is a large plaque which would have told her all she needs to know.
“National sovereignty is the root cause of the most crying evils of our times and of the steady march of humanity back to tragic disaster and barbarism….The only final remedy for this supreme and catastrophic evil is a federal union of the peoples.”
Lord Lothian (Philip Kerr), The Ending of Armageddon, 1939
In short, the very last thing the anti-democratic and anti-nationalist EU is going to sanction is the birth of another nation state.
