The question of Europe and the fallout of the Brexit vote features large on the front pages of many Scottish papers.

Scotland on Sunday poses the question of what happens to many areas of policy and funding when EU money runs out.

In a leader it warns that rural areas such as the west Highlands face worrying times ahead.

The Sunday Herald's front page is a striking image of a Saltire comprised of different languages stating that "Scotland is European".

Inside, its editorial asserts that the "weight of history demands that Scotland retain its European identity".

The Scottish Mail on Sunday leads with the Queen's address to the opening of the fifth session of the Scottish Parliament, urging calm in "challenging times".

The paper also pays tribute to Caroline Aherne, bidding farewell to a "comic genius".

The Sunday Mirror says of "My God you made us laugh", while the Scottish Sun on Sunday calls Aherne the "Royle Queen".

The Queen's call for calm comes as fresh doubt is being cast on the future of the UK by senior Labour figures signalling support for Scottish independence, according The Sunday Times.

A warning of a "Brexodus" of medical staff features on the front of the Sunday Post, which says doctors, nurses and midwives are already considering leaving the country after the vote to leave.

The Sunday Mail tells its readers about a fugitive drug smuggler whom it says is no longer facing efforts to return him to justice.

The fate of Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon and the possible boost to Andy Murray also make the front page, under the headline "Shockovic".
