What is a Scot?

When is a Scot not a Scot? My parents were both born in Scotland but I was born elsewhere in the UK.

Does this make me a non-native ethnic Scot? No matter where in the world I lived I 
always felt that I was a Scot and Scotland is home.

Can Donald J MacLeod (Letters, 16 April) please explain where he gets his figures from as I don’t recall having to put my country of birth on the ballot paper at the referendum.

Donald J Macleod missed out the only statistic that counts: 37 per cent. That’s the percentage of the Scottish electorate who 
voted Yes.
