The Scottish National Party has lost control of Argyll and Bute Council to a coalition of Independent, Conservative and Lib Dem councillors.
Ex council leader Dick Walsh has been elected to lead the new ruling group.
The development follows months of wrangling between the council's political and independent groups.
Earlier this week the ruling SNP group said talks had collapsed with the mainly independent group, Argyll and Bute Alliance For Change.
