Earlier on Tuesday, Nicola Sturgeon urged Scots to stay at home this Hogmanay amid a warning that coronavirus cases are rising.
The First Minister issued a reminder that level four restrictions are now in place across mainland Scotland to suppress a variant strain of the deadly virus.
The new strain may be up to 70% more transmissible than the old variant and could increase the R number by 0.4.
In a Twitter post, Sturgeon said: “Covid cases are rising.
“Level four restrictions are now in place across mainland Scotland to suppress the new strain.
“It is especially vital that we do not mix indoors with other households, including at Hogmanay.
“Please plan to bring in 2021 at home with your own household.”
