Nicola Sturgeon's Height
5ft 2 ¾ (159.4 cm)
Scottish Politician and First Minister of Scotland. In the press over the years, the SNP leader has been described from 5ft 2 up to 5ft 4. Ruth Davidson said "I'm 5'5". A bit taller than @NicolaSturgeon (5'2" or 5'3") but she wears higher heels!"

It’s interesting that she has been described as 5’2”!

Did you upgrade rob? I was thinking closer to the 5’3 mark also
A fair while ago I put her at weak 5ft 3, I think she wears a decent size heel at times.

Rob, how tall is Alex Salmond,former First Minister? 5 foot 8? 5 foot 7?
Editor Rob: Phil, I would say 5ft 8 range for Big Alex is fine.

What about a page for Ruth Davidson please Rob?

Ruth Davidson thinks she is 5 foot 5, but she isn't. Davidson is a short woman.

Rob, maybe 5 foot 2 and a half for Nicola Sturgeon?
Editor Rob: it is very arguable, at times she does look it.

Hi Rob, I was at the SNP conference a few days ago and Sturgeon is definitely and beyond any shadow of a doubt below 5ft3in; only with those extremely high heels of hers may she (perhaps..) reach that height. She deploys some ingenious 'tricks', however, to look taller: short 'fluffed up' hair, slimming clothes, and apparently her ridiculously high heels. Those who say she's taller than Ruth Davidson is an inaccurate claim as the latter usually wears flats whilst Sturgeon is walking on stilts.. Looking forward to seeing some photos of you, Rob, next to Sturgeon and Salmond. Perhaps next time during their spring conference. They won't decline your offer-no worries. They love taking selfies..;-)))
Editor Rob: I could see a 5ft 2 estimate at times, she does wear reasonable heels compared to most female politicians.

She looks better in the flesh than in a photo for sure.... Height as listed.....seems straightforward... Unusual for a politician.

But always called, dwarf, midget, wee etc??, maybe because of her resembelence to Jimmy Krankie who is about 4ft 5, people actually think she around the same?? lol
Editor Rob: it could be her resemblance and the fact that roughly near 5ft 3 she does look short.

thanks for adding nicola sturgeon, rob. i think 5 foot 3 is possible.

About the right height. She is completely ghastly, it has to be said.
Editor Rob: well, it's best to stick to height. Personally I can see anywhere around 5ft 3, even below is possible.
