Thousands of people lined the streets of Midlothian on Monday to welcome the Queen’s Baton Relay.
The tour began at the Midlothian Snowsport Centre at Hillend and made its way through towns and villages, finishing at Dalkeith Country Park for a party in the evening.
Scottish actor Brian Cox, who thrilled the spectators by carrying the baton to Rosslyn Chapel, was one of more than 100 baton bearers on the day.
