SCOTLAND’S ESSENTIAL POLITICAL REFERENCE GUIDE: The definitive guide to who’s who in Scottish politics. Holyrood’s annual Scottish Political Guide is your indispensable guide to the major figures and organisations in Scotland and provides you with the names, biographies and contact details of Scotland's key movers and shakers.

Holyrood are delighted to announce that the 18th edition of the annual Scottish Political Guide has now been published and is available to buy through our online shop

The Scottish Political Guide 2018 is the first to be published since May’s Scottish local government elections and June’s snap general election, which both saw significant changes to the political landscape.  The Guide profiles all of the key players across Scotland’s public sector including the new intake of Scottish MPs at Westminster, new MSPs at Holyrood, new parliamentary committees, the new makeup of Scottish local authorities, the civil service and public bodies.

Personally updated each year by the award-winning editorial team at Holyrood magazine (Scotland's fortnightly political and current affairs magazine), the Scottish Political Guide is recognised as the most comprehensive reference tool for anyone with a professional or commercial interest in Scottish politics, national and local government and the wider public sector.

Main features:

Scottish Government & Scottish Parliament: Names, biographies and contact details for the Scottish Cabinet, Special Advisors, Government Directorates, all 129 MSPs, Scottish Parliament Committees and Cross-Party Groups

Westminster and Europe: Names, biographies and contact details for UK Cabinet and Shadow Cabinet, and all Scottish representatives in London and Brussels

Local Authorities: Names, biographies and contact details for all 32 Scottish local authorities and a detailed listing of all elected councillors and non-elected office holders
