Scotland's First Minister has met with the Prime Minister as the two men prepared to seal a deal to grant the government in Edinburgh the power to hold a referendum on independence.
David Cameron arrived at the Scottish Government headquarters at St Andrew's House in Scotland's capital on Monday afternoon where he was greeted by First Minister Alex Salmond.
The pair shook hands and had a short conversation before posing for photographs alongside Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Scottish Secretary Michael Moore.
The deal, which has been dubbed "The Edinburgh Agreement", follows months of negotiations about the ballot, expected to be held in autumn 2014.
Private meetings between the two governments have covered contentious issues about the question on the paper, expected to be limited to a single Yes-No option.
Proposals for a second question on further devolution, short of independence, were firmly opposed by the UK Government.
The referendum is expected to be open to 16 and 17-year-olds, as supported by Mr Salmond's Nationalists.
Negotiations between the governments have been led by Ms Sturgeon and Mr Moore.
