LOCHGELLY, UK — A gray drizzle slicked the pavement outside as Gavin Loudon dropped into a chair at the public library in this Fife, Scotland town. He wore a crossing-guard-style blue vest emblazoned with the Yes logo of Scotland’s pro-independence campaign. He’s dedicated to this movement nearly four years of his life, some $3,000 of his own money and a $1,600 bet on Yes with the local bookie. And on Thursday, it will all be over. ‘It’s exciting, and butterflies,’ said Loudon, 34. ‘Everywhere you go, the buzz, the atmosphere, the energy — the whole country’s alive.’
