As the dust settles on what was a tense weekend of the aftermath of the Holyrood election, it's time to take a look at the results in full.

The SNP won 64 seats in the election after the polls closed on Thursday. The figure marked one short of a majority, but one more than they won back in 2016.

The Herald's live Covid tracker brought the results straight to you as they came in, and now we've had the chance to lay them out in full and look at how they've changed in the last five years. 


The map below gives a straight forward look at who won the election. The largely yellow-painted regions give a good indication that the SNP took home the victory, however fell just one seat short of that crucial 65, which would have meant they would have had a majority. 

If we look at this map in comparison with the map in 2016 by clicking the blue button above, we can see that a few seats changed hands.

Notably, the SNP won in Ayr. This seat had been held by the Conservatives' John Scott almost since the start of the Scottish Parliament, but was won on Saturday by Siobhan Brown.

Take a look at the constituency vote share.

We can compare this year's vote share to that in 2016, and see how this has changed.

We've also pulled together a comprehensive list of all the winning parties by constituency, and given them a side-by-side comparison of the winners back in 2016. 


The list votes saw parties like Scottish Labour, Scottish Conservatives and Scottish Greens pick up seats.

The map below shows where these seats were gained. To view the results in smaller regions, simply zoom into the area you wish to see for the split of regional votes.

And just like the constituencies, we've taken a look at the vote share and compared it to 2016 to give us a concrete look at how it's changed overtime.
