Abstract: This article examines the development of ideology in the Scottish National Party since its formation in 1934, focusing on the recent period of the party’s history. It examines ideological development within the context of the party’s adaptation to multi-level elections and party system, especially in the decade since devolution began in 1999. It also provides a brief consideration of the party’s office success and governmental performance since 2007 to examine the effect of office on the SNP and its autonomy goal of Scottish independence.
