Scotland gets glimpse of solar eclipse

Skygazers across Scotland have caught sight of the partial solar eclipse, despite some cloudy conditions.

The most spectacular 'ring of fire' views were to be had in the Arctic, but a good portion of the globe has been treated to a partial eclipse, where the Moon appears to take a big bite out of the Sun.

In Scotland: the north, Western Isles and Northern Isles were the best places to see the effect, with about 40% of the Sun eclipsed.
