Sir Chris Hoy has spoken of his joy at being part of a record-breaking team as the official victory parade of Scotland's Olympic and Paralympic heroes began.
Thousands of people lined the streets of Glasgow to cheer the athletes, including six-time gold medallist Sir Chris, rower Katherine Grainger, swimmer Michael Jamieson and cyclist Neil Fachie.
The parade set off from Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum at about 4.15pm, making its way through the city via Sauchiehall Street and Buchanan Street to George Square.
Sir Chris, Britain's most successful Olympian, won two golds at the London Games, taking his total number of golds up to six.
Speaking shortly before the parade began, he said: "It's nice to be part of the team - it's not just me. People have said to me, 'I had no interest in the Games and ended up glued to the TV'. It's amazing to see. It's not been a London-based Games - it's been for the whole of the UK."
The cycling sensation has been named as an official ambassador for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, to be hosted by Glasgow.
He said: "People are going to be massively behind it. I'm sure people will be surprised just how spectacular these games will be."
Scottish athletes won a record-breaking 13 medals at the Games and scored 11 medals at the Paralympics. Grainger, along with team-mate Anna Watkins, brought home Team GB's first gold in the rowing while Jamieson took silver in swimming.
Fachie was victorious in the velodrome, winning gold for Paralympics GB.
Andy Murray, another Scottish gold medallist, was not in attendance at the parade after he was advised to rest following his US Open tennis championship victory.
