Most-watched videos of 2015 on BBC Scotland News website

Watch a compilation of the most-watched videos of 2015, above.

The year began with the search for the crew of a cargo ship in the Pentland Firth and a lorry being battered by high winds on the Forth Road Bridge.

A huge steel jacket being lowered into the North Sea and the construction of an equally large Royal Navy aircraft carrier in Govan were popular with viewers.

As some things went up, others came down or they were supposed to anyway as two of Glasgow's Red Road flats failed to tumble in a controlled demolition.

There were serious times too as Alexander Pacteau admitted murdering Irish student Karen Buckley in Glasgow and 16-year-old school boy Bailey Gwynne died after being stabbed at Cults Academy in Aberdeen.

Among the more bizarre stories was one about Don the sheepdog that drove onto one of the busiest motorways in Scotland and a plucky reporter who tried out the UK's first human slingshot.

No round-up of the year would be complete without mentioning the SNP's win of 56 seats at Westminster in the general election.
