It'd be a bad idea if they go their own way. Having watched and followed through the referendum most of the Yes votes are through belief and general dislike of the English, concentrated by Salmond and the SNP. Very very few Yes voters are doing it because it'll be better economically or because Scots would be better off, because odds are that won't be the case.
It's the same thing as in this thread. People like throwing the idea of independence about but when it comes down to the finer details, often it just doesn't make sense to be in a worse position than what they are in now.
That's how it feels for this, and if Scotland vote yes (which still seems highly unlikely IMO) then they will find that out the hard way.
A lot of leftist Scots i've spoken to (TVTropes, my other forum, leans heavily to the left in its off-topic section) seem to feel that it's a lot about breaking away from right-leaning Westminster.
