Five-year-old Roan plays with the family cat as his father Ronnie Eunson (unseen) prepares breakfast in their croft near the village of Scalloway on the Shetland Islands April 1, 2014. Eunson plans to vote Yes in the upcoming independence vote as " a small country will be more responsible for the policies it pursues." Twelve hours by ferry from the Scottish mainland, hundreds of miles from Edinburgh and closer to Oslo than London, the windswept Shetland islands have their own aspirations about Scottish independence. Some of the 23,000 inhabitants even want their own. Many Shetlanders see the Sept. 18 vote on whether Scotland should end the 307-year-old union with England as an opportunity to gain control over local services and a share of revenues from the oil pumped from the North Sea.
