The Scottish national party memberships have rose from 9,450, 5 years ago to 15,097.
Reason believed for this is that the party has become popular, found stability, financial backers and electoral success.
The SNP is now the governing party in Scotland.
Their total of just more than 15,000 is not enough for the Nationalists to replace Labour as the most popular party in Scotland, although the party has experienced steady, year-on-year growth which, if continued, would see the SNP become the biggest party north of the Border in a few years.
Some of the party's main policies are an independent Scotland being a full member state of the European Union, to the country joining the single European currency at the appropriate exchange rate and is against membership of NATO.
Others are unilateral nuclear disarmament and a progressive personal taxation system.
