Crowds gathered in Glasgow's Botanic Gardens to take gucci shoes advantage of the sunshine while at Nardini's cafe, restaurant and ice-cream parlour in Largs, the sunny weather attracted large numbers of customers. One member of staff said: "We're absolutely mobbed here. I think everybody from Glasgow is down here today."
Major roads across Scotland were busy as families took advantage of the heat.
The Met Office tweeted the official confirmation yesterday afternoon, saying: "We have a new record maximum temperature for March in Scotland! 22.8°C recorded at Fyvie Castle (Aberdeenshire) at 3pm today."
There was further good news to come as for most of Scotland, the good weather looks like continuing for a few days at least.
Dave Clark, a forecaster at the Met Office, said records in various parts of the country were broken yesterday. A previous record maximum temperature of 22.2°C was recorded at Gordon Castle, Moray, in 1957, equalling that recorded at Strachan, Aberdeenshire in 1965.
Aboyne, in Aberdeenshire, yesterday enjoyed 21.7°C, as opposed to the previous high of 19°C. At Tain, temperatures soared to 21°C, breaking the record of 17.5°C. At Abbotsinch, Glasgow, the previous record of 16.4°C was exceeded yesterday with a reading gucci bags of 19.3°C.
"It's really just the high pressure bringing in nice, warm air of the Continent up across the UK," Mr Clark said. "The warmest finger of air is across Scotland. It's liable to be a little warmer on Monday. We're talking about half a degree. Tuesday will be slightly cooler, to about 20°C.
"The average for this time of year is 10°C, so the very warm temperatures are well above average.
"They'll continue through Wednesday, round about 18°C, and later on Wednesday we'll start to get some cloud in the far north, producing some light rain in the north on Thursday, but for most, it will be another fine, sunny day."
Gerard Sinclair, the SCCRC's chief executive, said: "The commission has always been willing to allow for publication of the outcome of our inquiries into Mr Megrahi's conviction."
However, the Crown Office said some actions of those fighting to clear Megrahi were "to be deplored" while insisting they have "every confidence" of defending the conviction in the event of an appeal.
The Herald recently carried a summary of the SCCRC report, but the Sunday Herald said that having cleared full publication with Megrahi himself, who had sent a copy to cheap gucci shoes Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill, it had been decided to publish the document in full with only a small number of deletions.
Mr Salmond said: "I welcome the publication in full of this report, which is something the Scottish Government has been doing everything in our powers to facilitate."
He added that while the report showed six grounds on which it believed a miscarriage of justice may have occurred, it also rejected 45 of the 48 grounds submitted by Megrahi – while upholding the forensic basis of the case.
The First Minister added: "This report provides valuable information, from an independent body acting without fear or favour, and while we cannot expect it to resolve all the issues, it does however lay the basis for narrowing the areas of dispute and in many ways is far more comprehensive than any inquiry could ever hope to be."
Holyrood Justice Committee convener Christine Grahame said: "There are allegations in the report that the Crown Office withheld crucial evidence that might have been substantive evidence to assist the defence.
"Where we have an allegation, I would wish the Crown to be able to establish that this is unfounded."
The Crown Office responded by stating that "unauthorised publication" did not deal with any of the data protection and confidentiality issues which gucci bags sale "rightly constrain all public authorities by law".
