Researchers at Glasgow University have been studying how the majority of Scots feel about people who live in Scotland but who are "not like them".
They used social attitude data to gauge "street-level prejudice" among majority Scots, a group that excludes Muslims, English immigrants and their partners.
They concluded that there was less Anglophobia than Islamophobia.
More than half thought a "true Scot" had to be born in Scotland but only 16% thought a "true Scot" had to be white....
The findings, published by the Scottish Centre for Social Research, show that 49% of those polled held negative rather than positive views of Muslims.
The comparable figure for English immigrants was 38%.
Behind the headline figures, there is a wealth of apparently contradictory attitudes.
More than 60% of majority Scots thought there should be a law outlawing discrimination against both Muslims and English. [Link]
