This chapter challenges the ethnic–civic dichotomy often used in discussions of nationalism. While the membership has a strong Scottish identity, there is a British dimension to the identities of a significant minority of members. The attitudes of the members are overwhelmingly civic but the members acknowledge multiple ways of defining who is ‘truly Scottish’, including both civic and ethnic ideas of belonging.

Keywords:   Nationalism, national identity, civic, ethnic
