Dougie McLean takes 'Yes' on tour
Dougie McLean, one of Scotland's most respected and popular musicians, is to take Yes on tour.
Dougie was pictured yesterday in Butterstone with a Yes board that he picked up at Friday's Yes Scotland launch.
His plan is to take the Yes board around Scotland with him, so he can take pictures of it with fans in every corner of the country.

Dougie played a starring role at Friday's launch, performing Caledonia, along with rising star of the Scottish music scene, Lou Hickey. And, he was one of the first to sign the Yes Declaration.
Of course, you can follow Dougie's lead, first by signing the Declaration yourself, but also by sending in pictures of you, your friends and family with the word Yes. We'll be sure to feature the best ones here on the website.

After a Yes vote, Scotland would not be outside the EU. There is no mechanism in EU law for Scotland to be expelled from the EU after a Yes vote, or for us to be deprived, overnight, of our EU citizenship rights.
The Tory Coalition's proposed “Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill” passed through the House of Lords last night and will now become law. This bill has been criticised for gagging charities, trade unions, and other political organisations especially during election periods.
As Christmas fast approaches it's astonishing to think here in Scotland, a country with the natural resources to be one of the most affluent nations in the world, that thousands of people will be relying on food banks to see them through the festive period.
A Yes vote next year is ‘an opportunity of a lifetime’ and Scots should seize it with enthusiasm, leading foreign affairs commentator Mary Dejevsky says.
