The SNP Manifesto Launch Appears To Be Taking Place In Some Kind Of Bond Villain Lair

We've been expecting you, Mr Salmond.

The SNP manifesto launch is taking place in this incredible venue, which looks like a hollowed-out volcano lair from a Bond film.

The venue – actually Scotland's International Climbing Centre – is just outside of Edinburgh.

It's full of terrifying-looking climbing walls like this, which we hope to see Nicola Sturgeon abseil down when the event begins.

BuzzFeed News has asked the SNP if we can have a go on a wall. This one is probably more our level.

Anyway, the actual manifesto launch is about to begin. Expect jokes about the SNP's climb in the polls.
