Night of high drama
BBC Radio Scotland, Dumfries
So a night of high drama which saw David Mundell, Scotland's only Tory MP, cling on to the Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale seat by the narrowest of margins.
As the polls predicted, his main challenge came from the SNP as Labour's support collapsed.
At points during the count it looked as if it could go either way. The nationalist's candidate - Emma Harper - a nurse by profession - eventually finishing just 798 votes adrift of the Tory incumbent now returned to Westminster for a third term in office.
The Dumfries and Galloway constituency, meanwhile, witnessed a major political shake up which brought the 18-year parliamentary career of Labour's Russell Brown to an end.
He was a victim of the so-called SNP tsunami which swept across Scotland overnight.
The nationalist's candidate - Stranraer-born lawyer and businessman Richard Arkless - polled almost 23,500 votes, not just winning the seat, but forcing Russell Brown into third behind the Conservatives' Finlay Carson.

Gretna Green - the Borders village historically favoured as a wedding venue for couples eloping from England - is one of the more well-known parts of Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale. Most people in this seat live in villages and towns such as Moffat, surrounded by large areas of farmland.
The western part of the constituency has ties to old industry including opencast mining and traditional knitwear manufacturing, which is in decline. Tourism is also important, and the Old Blacksmith's Shop and Centre at Gretna Green is one of Scotland's most visited free attractions. Elsewhere in the seat, the town of Lockerbie has become synonymous with the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988 - the UK's worst terrorist atrocity.
The constituency was held in 2010 by Scotland's only Conservative MP, David Mundell, with a 4,194-vote majority.
