Some 6 years ago in a nostalgic moment I purchased a 1" plot of land and have a cerificate that names me as a "Laird". Now living in England ,can anyone tell me if I am entitled to have a vote in the forthcoming September referendum?

I can't get my mind around this "citizen" implication. I once had a British passport, several over the years, and being born in Glorious Govan can still apply for one, and as all my ancestors all the way back to before the beyond were born in Scotland, except from one from Ulster I am still entitled to citizen ship in the U.K. It would seem from many strident postings in favour of an exclusive Scotland, that those living outside the borders of Scotland which in all legality have no existence, have no right to citizenship of Scotland. In fact have all those millions of Scots living in what is England, still no legality to that term as it only an historical geographical location, are soon to be disinherited from their Scottish name. What about all those poor folks in Corby. Are they all to be given an honorary certificate of "Scottishness" or a dual nationality passport ?
