BRENDAN O’Hara has retained the Argyll and Bute seat for the SNP, with Conservative Gary Mulvaney coming a close second.

 

The count at Lochgilphead High School was a tense affair, with little of the usual bonhomie between supporters of rival candidates.

 

The result was declared by returning officer Cleland Sneddon at 4.55am.
