First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's "battle" to keep Scotland in the EU and an interview with Peru drugs mule Melissa Reid after her return to Scotland feature on the front pages of the Sunday papers.

The Scottish Mail on Sunday has an interview with 22-year-old Reid who was released last week after spending almost three years behind bars in Lima.

Nicola Sturgeon wants Scotland to maintain its place in the EU without a second independence referendum, according to the Sunday Mail.

The Sunday Herald says independence is "the only answer" as Scotland comes to terms with the UK voting to leave the European Union.

Former first minister Alex Salmond tells The Scottish Sun on Sunday that Scotland must quit the UK to cash in on a "multi-million pound Brexit boom".

Scotland on Sunday devotes its front page to a picture of Nicola Sturgeon as she "moves fast" to set out the Scottish government's EU strategy.

The Sunday Post leads with a poll which it says shows 59% of Scots now back independence as the "backlash grows after Brexit vote".

A similar poll carried out by The Sunday Times Scotland claims to show a second independence referendum would result in 52% voting to leave the United Kingdom.
