Welcome . . .

The Scottish Liberal Club exists to promote Liberalism in a variety of ways. In normal times, we hold regular events such as discussion evenings and social gatherings, many of them with speakers, as well as the well-established annual dinner and lecture.

The Club is a separate organisation from the Scottish Liberal Democrats. Members who espouse Liberal ideas and values are welcome from within and outwith the Party.

Coming soon . . .
