Brexit: What Happens to Scotland?

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has already signalled that a BREXIT carried on English votes would trigger a second Scottish independence referendum, but that raises a whole host of fascinating questions.

If Scotland was let (back) in, how would it sit with regards to the single currency and the Schengen area?
