Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

IIRC, the Scottish parliamentary seats are distributed (roughly) proportionally to votes. Correct?

Since this very seldom produces a majority party, different (formal and informal) rules generally rule the formation of a government. In some cases (like Sweden) minority governments are common and in some others (like Germany) they are very uncommon, if they exist at all. From what you have written it would look like it in Scotland would demand a majority for forming a government. True?
