Nicola Sturgeon says the SNP will reflect on the results of the general election and “will listen to the voters”.
Speaking at Bute House she said her party winning a clear majority in Scotland was all the more remarkable given the political changes.
The first minister said her party would play a full part in finding the right way forward for all of the UK.
The Conservatives won 12 seats from the SNP, including Moray from the SNP’s Westminster leader Angus Robertson and Gordon from former first minister Alex Salmond.
The SNP lost six seats to Labour and three to the Lib Dems.
