Scotland continues to bask in sunshine as temperatures break more records in some parts of the country for this time of year.
The highest May temperature in Glasgow and Renfrewshire since 2009 was recorded in Bishopton as the mercury hit 26.8C on Thursday afternoon.
Temperatures also reached 25.9C at Tyndrum, just north of Loch Lomond and some parts of Dumfriesshire.
The highest temperature of the year was recorded on Wednesday with Altnaharra in the Highlands recording 27.3C.
But this week's sunshine is yet to beat the highest temperature ever recorded in May which was 29C at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh in 1992.
STV weatherman Sean Batty said that temperatures could still get hotter over Thursday and Friday and the sunshine is set to stay for the weekend.
He said: "It will be fine and sunny over the weekend but there will be high and low cloud in east and coastal areas. Temperatures will reach around 23C so it will be very pleasant barbecue weather.
"UV levels are fairly high and people should make sure that they cover up and apply sunblock, especially everyone taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday."
