THE north of Scotland was the place to be for fans of fun in the sun on Bank Holiday Monday – after it posted the warmest temperature of the year so far.

The region was basking in glorious sunshine, still conditions, and some of the highest temperatures in the UK.

Kinloss in Moray even broke the record for the warmest temperature of spring 2021 to date – with the mercury topping out at 24.6C, according to the Met Office.

This was 0.1C higher than the previous warmest temperature of 2021 – a 24.5C which was recorded at Kew Gardens back on March 30.

And people were certainly making the most of the super conditions when our photographers hit the streets of Inverness a little earlier.

What's more, with similar conditions expected on Tuesday, there's likely to be ample opportunity for people to enjoy some of the sunshine.
