For Historic Scottish Vote, All ‘Ayes’ Were on The Haven

The Haven, the only Scottish bar and restaurant in Boston, became the defacto capital for Hub media Thursday night as Scotland took its historic vote on independence. Media outlets on hand included CBS Channel 4, Boston Neighborhood Network, the Jamaica Plain Gazette and, of course, Jamaica Plain News. Earlier, crews from WBUR interviewed the pub's owner, Scot Jason Waddleton. JP's Matt Murray, pictured above being interviewed by BNN, said he leans slightly "aye" on whether Scotland should be an independent country. Murray's family traces their roots to Scotland, where a relative many generations ago may — may — have fought alongside Bonnie Prince Charlie.
