GLASWEGIANS have flocked to parks and beaches as temperatures soar across the country. 

Hundreds of locals have headed to some of the best tourists hotspots to enjoy an afternoon in the sun. 

Ayr was one of these popular destinions as people rushed down to the South Ayrshire coastline. 

Glasgow Times:

Trains heading from the city to the coast have been so busy that ScotRail earlier warned it had been forced to put queues in place in Glasgow Central. 

Staff wrote: "Due to exceptionally high numbers of people heading to the coast, all customers travelling on services towards Ayr from Glasgow Central will need to queue for boarding. You may not be able to take your first choice of train, so allow extra time for travel."

The new rules allow Scots to sunbathe and meet friends or family from one other household outdoors for the first time in months - as long as they do so in groups of up to eight people, and keep at least two metres apart.

The rush to the seaside comes amid a ban on booze in a popular Glasgow park. 

Kelvingrove Park would normally be full of revellers making the most of the good weather but a ban on alcohol is in place this weekend. 

The park saw chaotic scenes during the lockdown, as drunken locals were escorted by cops for drinking and violating social distancing rules. 

Officers and Glasgow City Council (GCC) staff have been positioned at the gates to Kelvingrove throughout the day, warning anyone arriving at the green spot with alcohol that they will be refused entry.
