Supporters have gathered in Stirling to mark the 75th anniversary of the Scottish National Party.

Veteran politician Winnie Ewing was joined by Parliamentary Business Minister Bruce Crawford to cut a special birthday cake for the event.

The party was formed following a merger between the National Party of Scotland and the Scottish Party.

First Minister Alex Salmond, who is in China, has sent an email to the party's 15,000 members to mark the occasion.

In it he told them the last 75 years had seen "Scotland and the SNP journey together".
