She told the Observer: “The minute Sturgeon started talking about another referendum, that was a clincher. I have friends who voted Yes but have now voted Labour because they have had enough.
“People are tired of the to-ing and fro-ing. Within weeks of Brexit, Sturgeon was back on her soap box; I think she realises now that was a mistake.”
Ms Allan used her vote to oust former Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond from his seat, casting her ballot for the Conservatives in the Gordon constituency.
She said: “I was tortured in the runup to the election.
Alan Buchan, 73-year-old an ex-oil worker whose industry has seen thousands of job cuts in Scotland in recent years, said he did not trust Sturgeon over Europe and cast his vote for the Tories instead.
On the younger end of the Scottish electorate, 18-year-old Murray Coueslant, a first time voter in Aberdeen North, said he voted against the SNP because he did not support independence.
He said: “I don’t think independence is the right thing for Scotland. I believe in voting for a party not a leader so I voted Lib Dem.”
The SNP suffered a disastrous night at the polls Thursday after it lost 21 of the 56 seats it won in 2015 to the Conservatives, Labour and the Lib Dems.
