The result was a hold for each of the sitting independent councillors as well as an SNP hold:
|Party||Candidate||1st Prefs||Vote Share||Elected?|
|Lib Dems||Tony Miles||105||4.4%|
As with the rest of the elections held a week earlier, turnout was down significantly on 2007. Walsh and MacAlister were both elected on first preferences with Walsh gaining the largest increase in first preference share over 2007, while MacAlister also managed to add to the SNP share.
The other independent McQueen saw his vote share fall back a little on 2007, but still won the third seat comfortably ahead of Labour, who only made a slight improvement on their last performance here. Meanwhile, the Lib Dems and the Conservatives both lost ground, each polling below 5%.
The final composition of Argyll and Bute Council gives the Independent-SNP administration a whopping majority over the Conservative and Lib Dem opposition, while Labour continue to have no representation here:
