“I’m proud and honoured that the people of the place I love, the place I call home chose me as their Member of Parliament for the constituency.
“The election is over. The hard work of the next five years starts now.”

Mr Logan also went on to pay tribute to his predecessor in the Banff and Buchan part of the constituency.

He added: “I also want to pay tribute to David Duguid for his work during his time as MP for Banff and Buchan.
