What currency for an independent Scotland?

On tonight's Question Time it was suggested that an independent Scotland could somehow be denied the use of GBP as currency.

I'd be interested to know how this could be achieved.

I don't see why they couldn't legislate any currency they like as legal tender: GBP, EUR, USD, XAU. Or they could legislate none at all, leaving it to the people to decide which currency (or currencies) they prefer.
