After a quiet opening weekend, Scotland's first medal came from an unexpected source. Daniel Purvis was part of the team that won bronze in the men's gymnastics. Britain's first medal in the event since 1912 and Scotland's first medal of the games.

There was more water-based success, this time in the swimming pool. Glasgow's Michael Jamieson took silver in the 200m breaststroke, breaking the British record in the process. It took a world record swim from gold medallist Dániel Gyurta to stop him taking gold.
After three consecutive silver medals Katherine Grainger finally won gold. The 36-year-old Glaswegian and Anna Watkins took the women's double sculls in one of the most emotional races held at Eton Dorney.
The water-resistance of the Scots was proving invaluable. Aberdonian Tim Baillie and his partner Ettienne Stott won gold in the Canoe Slalom C2 on day six of the games. The pair were ranked 6th in the world before the Olympics but upset the odds to beat Slovakian brothers Pavol and Peter Hochschorner. And the drama wasn't over there...
In second place behind Baillie and Stott were Richard Hounslow and Aberdeen's David Florence (right). Florence took silver in the C1 class in Beijing four years ago and followed that up with another silver in London.
Sir Chris Hoy was already in possession of his first gold medal of the London games and his fifth overall before he took part in the final of the Keirin on day 11. Hoy won and secured his 6th gold medal. The Edinburgh-born cyclist is now the most decorated British Olympian in history with six golds and a silver - surpassing Sir Steve Redgrave.
Along with Hoy, Andy Murray was one of the poster boys of the Olympics. Murray picked up two medals. He beat Roger Federer in the singles final to take gold and later on the same day the 25-year-old from Dunblane lost in the final of the mixed doubles along with Laura Robson.
Scott Brash had perhaps the strangest reason for coveting an Olympic medal. His response when asked was: "Well, I really hope it improves my pulling power with women, to be honest with you – yeah, I think that’s about it.”
There was more success for Scotland on the water as the games drew to a close. Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell claimed silver in the men's 470 class sailing.
Emily Maguire and Laura Bartlett were both part of the women's hockey team that won bronze.
Scotland's first medal of the Paralympic games was won by Aileen McGlynn OBE. She finished second in the women's 1km time trial in the C1-3 class. She went on to claim bronze in the individual pursuit.
Edinburgh-based Sam Ingram took silver in the Judo to add to the bronze he won in Beijing.
Scotland's first gold of the Paralympics came in the men's 1km time trial. Neil Fachie set a new World record as he won the first of his two medals. The other was a silver in the individual sprint.
The following medal was achieved the very next day as Paralympian Stefanie Reid finished second in the F42/44 long jump. The 27-year-old, who was born in New Zealand but has a Scottish father, set a Paralympic record in the process.
Former Olympian Craig Maclean from Grantown-on-Spey piloted Anthony Kappes to gold in the individual sprint. Maclean previously won a silver medal at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
Scotland's last gold of the Paralympic games and indeed the summer was won by David Smith from Aviemore. He was part of the mixed coxed fours team who finished more than 2 seconds ahead of Germany in the final.
On 2 September there were two more medals, not just for Scotland but for the Clegg family. James won a bronze medal in the 100m butterfly...
Just an hour later his older sister Libby took silver in the 100m T12 race. The older sibling had already experienced success at the Beijing paralympics in 2008, winning silver in the same event.
The last Scottish medal of the Games and the summer was won by Karen Darke from Inverness. She took silver in the road cycling H 1-2 time trial. Darke will be best remembered for trying to share the bronze medal with Rachel Morris in the H 1-3 race. The pair crossed the line hand in hand, but judges ruled Morris crossed marginally in front of Darke.
