Conservative’s Colin Clark lost his Gordon seat to SNP’s Richard Thomson.
Reflecting on his loss, he said: “I think our vote is actually up but the SNP vote is too. I recognise that.
“We fought a very good campaign. We got very close. The Labour vote has gone across to the Conservatives in England and in Scotland it has gone to the SNP.
“What’s important is that we recognise that we leave the EU as a United Kingdom and this entire campaign is about making sure there isn’t an indyref 2 and we don’t break up the United Kingdom.
“The union vote is still bigger than the SNP vote and it’s important we reflect what the people of Scotland want.”
