BBC Scotland will be delivering extensive coverage of the election results across online, TV and radio.

It will report live from Scotland's 32 counts after polls close at 22:00 on 7 May.

There will then be analysis, background, reaction and debate as we find out the results from each of Scotland's 59 constituencies.

Headlines from a UK-wide exit poll will be projected onto the exterior of BBC Scotland's studios at Pacific Quay.

And the results of the ballot will also appear on the side of the building, which sits on the banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow.


  • The BBC's news website will be the one-stop place to go on results night. You will be able to keep in touch with the UK-wide picture on your phone, tablet, laptop, internet-enabled television and computer.
  • The Scottish picture will be brought to you through a dedicated live page which you can also use to watch BBC One Scotland and listen to Radio Scotland.
  • You will be able to find out what is happening in your constituency, ahead of the result and after.
  • There will be video and audio clips, picture galleries, blogs, analysis and news stories.
  • Find out the key moments and reaction to the results on social media by following @BBCScotlandNews on Twitter and BBC Scotland news on Facebook.


  • An overnight television programme, starting at 22:00 on BBC One Scotland will be presented by Glenn Campbell, Brian Taylor and Jackie Bird. It will run until 06:00 on Friday.
  • There will be news updates throughout the day including Reporting Scotland at 18:30 on Friday.
