    Section 1.7. Section 1.7. All persons with a grandparent of Scots nationality have the right to be citizens of Scotland.

      • Caledonialan

        Section 1.7. Until independence, there is no Scots nationality. Many grandparents will have died before independence. The term "a grandparent of Scots nationality" should be modified to, probably "a grandparent born in Scotland". Even so, that does not cover people with parents but no grandparents born in Scotland, unless they were themselves born in Scotland or are resident there. Is it intended to exclude such people? The phrase "have the right to be" is also a little vague.
