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.

A Yes vote could prompt a surge of interest from overseas organisations wanting to visit the world’s newest country.
This is the view of John Strachan, managing director of Edinburgh-based events management company Maximillion.
Writing in Conference and Incentive Travel Magazine to mark one year until the referendum, Mr Strachan says there could be a "positive immediate response" after a Yes vote.
A new study by leading German think tank, the Bertelsmann Foundation,has confirmed that the most equitable societies in the Western world belong to the small, Nordic nations.
