Shetland doesn't want independence. They don't trust the Scottish Parliament at all. Similar problem with Aberdeen and Edinburgh to an extent. The parts pushing for independence are Glasgow, Dundee and parts of the west.

Tough, it'll be the will of the people and they'll just have to live with it or go for an independence referendum themselves...

The thing is that independence from Scotland isn't feasible in the case of Scotland leaving the UK, unless they would be allowed to stay in the UK. They have too little a population to stay out of the sphere of influence of Scotland, and are too far away from the Nordic countries.

Rubbish. When Shetland gains independence the people of Unst will want their own referendum for independence as they didn't want independence from Scotland.

Just wait until 52 people vote for independence and 48 don't.
