Today at Kilmory Castle leadership of the council officially changed hands.
Reports that the Alliance of Independent Councillors, the Conservatives and the Libdems had cobbled together a majority came to nothing and the Coalition for Progress which includes SNP, Argyll First and Independent Councillors have swept into power and formed the new administration.

- Roddy McCuish was elected Leader by a 20-16 majority against Dick Walsh
- Isobel Strong was voted Provost 20-16 majority against Len Scoullar
- Douglas Philand was voted Depute Provist unopposed
- John Semple was voted Depute Leader 20-16 majority against Ellen Morton
