Peace is the failure of the military to convince the government that it can and should kick its enemies ass.

Results should start trickling in, at 0200 London time, about 3.5 hours from this post.  Aberdeen results  won't start to appear until a few hours after that.
Polls are calling it "No" by a hair's breadth.
Important sources of error inherent in the poll are that the vote is unprecedented.  It is easier to predict results if there is some recent similar event. 
The other problem is that 85 percent of those voting "No" feel intimidated by "Yes" supporters.  This may tend to suppress "No" opinions in surveys and while a good pollster may try to compensate for this, it increases margins of error.

0200 London time is 12 hours and 40 minutes from the time of MY response to your post!

Voting is currently underway and won't see the polling stations closing for some time yet!

Scotland Decides:
SCOTLAND VOTES NO
No 2,001,926
Yes 1,617,989

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-29277527

Alex Salmond is to step down as Scottish first minister after voters decisively rejected independence.

He will also resign as leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) after the "No" side won Thursday's referendum by 2,001,926 to 1,617,989 for "Yes".

The national split of the vote was 55% for "No" to 45% for "Yes".
