Under a system of proportional representation, the SNP wouldn't be the third largest party in parliament - the only reason they have so many seats is because of first past the post, whereby they didn't get the majority of the vote in IIRC *any* seat last year yet won 48 anyway. You'd have seen the Lib Dems in third place, potentially with the Greens or Brexit Party in fourth ahead of the SNP depending on how it's sliced. It'd be fundamentally healthier for politics in that part of the country, because you wouldn't have a monolithic yellow block that ignores the wishes of a majority of its constituents.
