Voting Intention: Undecided

Lisa Gillen single-handedly runs a community centre and is self-employed as a life coach as well as being a mum to three teenage daughters.

She is very interested in the possibilities of what independence might mean for Scotland and for her personally, as she tries to secure funding to establish her new life-coaching business.

She also is concerned that the campaigns are only telling people what they think they want to hear, and not the "warts and all" of what the different outcomes might be.

"I think a lot of people don't understand [the issues]. Young people should be told what their vote is going to entail.

"It's a big thing to be independent. What next? What would the outcomes be? What am I going to gain?"

That is causing her uncertainty about how to vote.

"I do think we've got a lot of resources, and I want Scotland to be independent. As long as it is not underhand [the way they go about it].

As to how she will cast her vote: "I'm swithering."
