Where in Scotland do people feel the most Scottish?

The majority of Scottish people view themselves as 'Scottish only' rather than 'Scottish and British'. Where are they?

If the current polling numbers hold steady, the Scottish public will reject the opportunity to make their country independent from the rest of the UK next autumn.
It is perhaps a bit surprising then that the majority of Scots, 62% of them, deemed themselves "Scottish only" in the 2011 census. Only 18% of respondents called themselves "Scottish and British", which suggests that any sort of British national identity is close to fading north of the border.
