Nicola Sturgeon is more interested in pushing for independence than she is in finding a solution to Brexit, the Scottish Conservatives have claimed.
All 35 SNP MPs abstained in a Commons vote on whether there should be customs union with the EU after Brexit.
Tory interim leader Jackson Carlaw said the SNP had "refused to back the very option they have been demanding" and accused Ms Sturgeon of "faux outrage".
Ms Sturgeon said remaining in the EU must now be the top priority.
And she said her party would continue to "stand up for Scotland's interests" by pushing for another referendum on EU membership.
The exchanges in the Scottish Parliament came the day after MPs at Westminster failed to find a majority for a way forward after voting for eight different Brexit options on Wednesday evening, leaving the process in deadlock.
The customs union option would have been successful if the SNP had voted for it instead of abstaining.

Scotland got a choice. Her side lost. Now she needs to hike up her big girl knickers and deal with it.
