Scottish National Party leader Alex Salmond has urged Scots to grasp the chance for independence, calling it "the most natural thing in this world".
Scotland's first minister told his party's conference that while Scotland's devolved government could "demand", an independent one could "deliver".
The SNP wants to hold an independence referendum in autumn 2014.
