Siol nan Gaidheal

Siol nan Gaidheal (meaning Seed of the Gael), were formed as a Scottish nationalist organisation with a focus mainly on Scottish history, heritage and culture. Formed in 1978 as a faction within the Scottish National Party (SNP), they were made a proscribed organisation by the SNP leadership in the early 1980s along with the left leaning internal 79 Group.

Many of their memebrs adopted a quasi-paramilitary look and would often burn the Union Jack at rallies and so on.

A successor organisation of the same name continues to exist.
