The Tories' leader in Scotland has hailed an "incredible result" which looks likely to put the Conservatives in second place north of the border, ahead of Labour.
Ruth Davidson - who won the Edinburgh Central seat from the Scottish National Party (SNP) - said her campaign had focused on providing a "strong opposition" to the ruling SNP.
She also admitted she realised those who had voted for the party were unlikely to be "true blue Conservatives".
I fully recognise and understand there are many people that have given us their vote for the very first time, not because they're true blue Conservatives, but because there's a job of work they want us to do.
I hope the message that was resonating was of being a strong opposition, to hold the SNP to account, to saying no to a second independence referendum, to respect the decision that our country made and to really focus on the things we're paying a government to focus on, on schools, on hospitals, on public services.
That's what people want.
21-year-old Ross Greer has been elected as the youngest-ever Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP), representing the Green Party.
Labour is facing a disastrous election night in Scotland, with the party in danger of finishing third behind the SNP and the Conservatives.
