Scotland is bigger than Wales and was more distinct, and was dominated by England, not really an equal partnership.

Wales was annexed by England almost 500 years ago, before the personal union between England and Scotland. While the Welsh language and other customs have defied the odds and remain quite healthy today, it's a very small nation that has long been integrated into England's legal and public institutions.

Judging by Plaid Cymru's areas of support, it would seem that Welsh nationalism is more tied to language than Scottish nationalism.

Does SNP have policies aiming at the revival of Scottish Gaelic?
