The Met Office has declared that Scotland had a White Christmas, after snow and sleet moved across parts of the country.
Taking to X, the forecasting body said a mixture of snow and rain was recorded at Tulloch Bridge and Aviemore on Monday afternoon – making it an “official white Christmas”.
The Met Office defines a White Christmas as a single snowflake falling on December 25.
It comes after the record for the highest daily minimum temperature for Christmas Day was broken further south.
Forecasters have also predicted that Monday will be the warmest Christmas in almost a decade, with highs of 14C expected in some parts of the country.
A yellow weather warning for rain and snow comes into force across the majority of Scotland later this week.
The Met Office alert covers large parts of north, eastern and central Scotland including Aberdeenshire, Tayside, Fife, parts of the Lothians and the Borders.
The alert is in place from 6am until 11.59pm on Wednesday, December 27.
It follows days of high winds, blustery showers and snow battering parts of Scotland which sparked three yellow weather alerts across the country.
Parts of Scotland were hit by snow showers and ice, causing major travel disruption over the Christmas weekend.
A yellow warning for wind was in place until midnight on Sunday, December 24, covering most of Scotland north of Peebles.
