According to BBC Scotland:
Hugh O'Donnell was the leading candidate in the party's Central Scotland list.
Mr O'Donnell said was unhappy with the direction of the party in Scotland and the UK Tory/Lib Dem coalition.
Mr O'Donnell, who served as a Central Scotland list MSP for four years, will now stand as an independent candidate in the region.
Will a few Welsh Lib Dems try to save themselves in the same way?
