The ruling Labour-Liberal Democrat coalition on Stirling Council has been removed after a vote of no confidence.
The Labour-Lib Dem administration resigned after the vote
The motion was carried by 11 votes to 10 after the SNP group received support from the Conservatives.
The coalition resigned following the vote and the SNP will now lead the council as a minority administration.
Labour has controlled the local authority since 1997 but was forced to form a coalition with the Lib Dems following last year's election.
The council was the last in Scotland to agree an administration.
Stirling Council has 22 elected members comprising eight Labour, seven SNP, four Conservative and three Liberal Democrat members.
Cllr Gerard O'Brien, who is a suspended Labour member, was not in attendance at Wednesday's vote.
Seven Nationalist councillors put forward the no confidence motion almost a fortnight ago.
SNP councillor Graham Houston was appointed leader after the administration resigned.
Mr Houston said: "The people of Stirling voted for change in May, now that change will finally be delivered.
"The new SNP council will not just implement the council tax cut put forward by the previous administration, we will freeze council tax for the full three years.
"After decades of Labour control in Stirling, the SNP will bring a breath of fresh air to the council."
Conservative group leader Cllr Alistair Berrill said: "Labour has been in power in Stirling for over 10 years.
"During that time council tax levels rose yet satisfaction with services is at an all time low."
He added: "We will not take jobs for this support, nor do we make any unreasonable policy demands but instead we will continue to act as a constructive, yet critical opposition of the new administration."
