In Ward 3 there are three councillor positions and while two of those elected in 2017 stood for re-election, there was a shock when former Conservative councillor, Mark Brown, was not re-elected.
Brown, a Conservative favourite of Ruth Davidson, was the definitive hardworking local councillor.
Cllr Claire Bridgman who was elected as an SNP councillor in 2017 resigned the whip during her term and stepped down.
We apologise for the lack of any photos of the successful councillors in this ward but the result was announced without us hearing it.
