The Scots Independent

'The Scots Independent' was established in 1926 by the Scots National League.

In 1928 the League amalgamated with Glasgow University Scottish Nationalist Association, the Scottish National Movement and the Scottish Home Rule Association to form the National Party of Scotland (NPS).

Literary figures including R B Cunninghame Graham, Compton Mackenzie, Christopher Grieve and Lewis Spence were at the forefront of the new party.

The left-leaning NPS in turn merged with the more right-wing Scottish Party to form the Scottish National Party in 1934.
