Saturday saw the Queen's Baton Relay hit the capital.
Thousands turned out around Edinburgh to catch of glimpse of the Commonwealth Games baton on its journey to Glasgow.
The 36-mile-long relay route took in many parts of the city and involved city locals from all walks of life.
Needless to say, photos and videos from the historic event soon appeared on social media. Here's our pick of some of the best.
The baton relay began at Heriot Watt and got on a tram
Then it got a 21 gun salute from soldiers at the Castle
The official video from Glasgow 2014 gives a good account of how the baton began its route around the city.
People could try out Commonwealth Games sports at Meadowbank
Alex Salmond was joined by Steve Cardownie and Shona Robison to show off the three last Commonwealth Games batons together.
It travelled to the Commonwealth Pool to meet the Team Scotland divers
It went to Leith
And ended up at the Ross Bandstand, carried by Alex Arthur
Where the Provost received a memento of the day
And then the party began...
This is the contemporary folk band Rura entertaining the crowds.
Before the baton left for Midlothian.
