WATCH A 'Different' Scotland to Vote on Independence

Scotland might soon be an independent country.

Scots are voting Thursday on whether to secede from the United Kingdom, a decision that would grant Scotland independence but separate it from the rest of Great Britain, which also includes England and Wales.

5 Things That May Happen if Scotland Votes for Independence

If that happens, Britain will no longer be able to claim great Scottish actors, foods and landmarks as its own.

Here's what the British will likely miss the most if it loses Scotland:

1. Scotch

Without Scotland, there would be no Scotch.

Scotch, by definition, only comes from one place: Scotland.

2. Sean Connery

Perhaps Scotland's most well-known Hollywood star, Sean Connery is also the original James Bond. He played Agent 007 in the first five Bond films and also two later movies. Connery has also made it clear he's pro-Scottish independence and supports "the core democratic value that the people of Scotland are the best guardians of their own future."

However, the U.K. does have its own James Bond connection -- Roger Moore and Daniel Craig are both from England.

3. Susan Boyle

The Scottish singing sensation doesn't want to part ways with the U.K., telling the Scottish Sun newspaper that "we have still been able to retain our proud identity whilst being a part of Britain."

No word on whether they'll revoke her title as "Britain's Got Talent" winner if Scotland secedes.

4. Edinburgh Castle

Brits will no longer be able to point out the Edinburgh Castle as one of its most impressive sights if Scotland becomes independent. The historic castle is a famous tourist attraction in Edinburgh.

5. Haggis

Haggis is a traditional Scottish meal made of minced sheep's liver, lungs and heart mixed with oatmeal and encased in the animal's stomach lining.

Maybe the U.K. is happy to lose this one.

6. Gerard Butler

Another famous Scottish actor, Gerard Butler isn't so sure about Scottish independence.

"I used to be totally pro-independence, I was massively in favor of it, but no my feeling is that we should be about coming together rather than separating ourselves," Butler told a Scottish publication in May.

7. Robert Burns

The famous Scottish writer penned the poem "Auld Lang Syne," which to this day is famously sung around the world at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Day.

8. Loch Ness Monster

Yes -- the Loch Ness monster is Scottish.

The mysterious lake creature comes from the Scottish Highlands, and some people are even questioning whether the monster has been making an appearance to voice its opinion on the independence vote.
