The National:

AS Scotland's only pro-independence daily newspaper, we are often alone on the newsstand in highlighting Scottish achievements.

The lack of media coverage helps perpetuate the myth of Scotland being "too wee, too poor" for independence.

The more people see the remarkable progress being made in this country with limited powers, the more it will become obvious we can make it without the Union.

Aiming to battle those negative preconceptions, Sarah Mackie put together a short video highlighting the positives.

The clip has already went viral, racking up 25,000 views on Facebook.

And here it is:

Scotland's booming renewables sector and the hugely successful Quensferry Crossing construction project are just two examples proving the point.

Explaining why she produced the video, Mackie told The National: "I got fed up with seeing constant negative stories about Scotland (who could forget how terrible the baby box was when we introduced it?!), and the tired old argument that we're subsidised by the rest of the UK.

"We may have areas that still need some work to improve, but this notion that we're totally reliant on the 'broad shoulders of the UK' needs challenged.

"As far as I can see, the Scottish Government and UK Government are taking vastly divergent paths – I wanted to draw attention to the fact that we've got a lot to be proud of, and we're most certainly not too wee or too poor to become an independent country!"

Very well said.
