The UK Independence Party (UKIP) has launched its manifesto and Scottish campaign for the European elections.
Elections are looming for the European Parliament
It is fielding a full slate of candidates on 10 June, including seven in Scotland.
The party is campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union (EU) and claims that the public mood in Scotland is moving in its favour.
It said that Britain's continuing membership of the EU is costing the country £11bn a year.
At the launch in Edinburgh, party activists said that the UK would be better off as an independent country.
It claimed that countries such as Norway and Switzerland were successful at trading with the countries of Europe without being politically bound to them.
The party won three seats in England during the last Euro election but it received less than 2% of the vote in Scotland.
The candidate first on its list in Scotland is Peter Troy, a public relations worker from County Durham in England.
