More than half of voters support keeping Scotland in the UK, according to a poll.
The YouGov survey, published by The Courier newspaper, put support for independence at 29% and opposition at 55%.
The findings are broadly in line with two other polls this month from different organisations.
YouGov's survey of more than 1,000 people in Scotland was conducted after the high-profile SNP conference in Perth.
People were asked to respond to the Scottish Government's preferred question "Do you agree that Scotland should be an independent country?"
Of the total responses, 14% are undecided.
Soundings were also taken on attitudes to the two main campaigns, Yes Scotland and Better Together.
Of those who are aware of the campaigns, 33% think Yes Scotland demonstrates the best evidence to support its case, compared with 32% for Better Together.
The findings come a week after Ipsos Mori suggested support for independence stands at 30% compared with 58% for the Union.
Earlier this month, a TNS-BMRB poll suggested support for independence is 28% while opposition stands at 53%.
