TOWNS, cities and villages marked Scotland's undemocratic departure from the EU last night by singing Auld Lang Syne, Flower of Scotland, Ode to Joy and more.

Pro-Europe Scots gathered at events across the country as 11pm approached, braving the rain to show unity with our neighbours.

At the 2016 EU referendum, 62% of Scots voted Remain - and newer polls suggest three quarters (75%) believe the outcome of that vote was wrong.

A number of last night's farewell events were held with the theme of "Leave a light on for Scotland". Crowds brought candles, torches and their phones to shine brightly through the drizzle, demonstrating the nation's desire to stay in the EU - and many people's hopes to return to the bloc as an independent country.

Here's some pictures and videos of what was going on in a few Scots locations as the clock struck 11pm last night.
