Notes: The forecast base was the 2011 Scottish Parliament Election, although gains are compared to the current situation. An experimental UK-Elect method was used (UK-Elect supports many different alternatives, including "classic" methods such as Uniform National Swing, Proportional, and Proportional Loss, with or without a threshold). The forecast was (of course) made using the Additional Member System used in the Scottish Parliament elections. Tactical voting was set to 5% and configured to use party vote-transfer preferences. Note: The colour scheme selected for the maps shown on this page uses Yellow for SNP, Orange for the Liberal Democrats, Red for Labour and Blue for the Conservatives. UK-Elect supports several alternate colour schemes and also allows party colours to be configured individually if desired.

Additional Note:Because of the experimental nature of the method used the confidence level in this forecast should be regarded as somewhat lower than normal, although in this particular case a prediction using Uniform National Swing produced very similar results. Also, the prime purpose of the forecast was to predict seat totals - the overall forecast for each party has a higher confidence level than the forecast for any individual seat.
