    "The helpfulness and enthusiasm of the security staff allowing the public to participate where possible made this small boy's day and will give him something to 'brag' about for quite some time. Thank you all for such an experience and go Team Scotland at the Games!!!"

  38. Safe hands

    Dave MacLeod's turn as a baton bearer saw him freeclimb the 240ft (73m) high volcanic basalt known as Dumbarton Rock.

    The fact that he managed to do this while holding the baton, which weighs 1.6kg (3.5lbs), makes his feat all the more impressive.

    Dumbarton Rock

    Although Dave was the first to climb the mound's Rhapsody route, one of the hardest graded traditional climbing routes in the world, he chose to revisit the first ever climb he made as teenager in sneakers - the considerably easier Plunge.

    Following his successful ascent of Dumbarton Rock with the baton, Dave MacLeod has been talking to BBC Scotland's Cameron Buttle.

    Viewers in Scotland can see the interview on tonight's Reporting Scotland at 18:30 BST on BBC1.

  42. One-handed climb

    Graham Stewart

    BBC Scotland

    They tried to strap the baton on to Dave's back and then his chest but he wasn't too sure it would stay there.

    So Dave bravely decided just to hold it during his ascent.

    The BBC have hired a remote controlled mini helicopter to capture the pictures at close range from the skies. Onlookers literally cheered when they saw this miracle of robotic engineering take to the skies.

    Dave MacLeod tries the baton strapped to his back

    We will bring you photos of the climb when we can.

  43. Hang on a minute

    Dave MacLeod is probably Britain's best all-round climber.

    He has just taken the baton up Dumbarton Rock.

    "That's the hardest minute and 40 seconds of my life," he said as he arrived at the summit.

    His obsession with scaling cliffs started on Dumbarton Rock as a youngster, which is where he established the Rhapsody route in 2006, at the time graded the hardest traditional climb in the world.

    Holding two mascots of course!

  66. Give him enough rope

    Graham Stewart

    BBC Scotland

    It took only a couple of minutes for Rob Watts to abseil down the Titan Crane with the baton in his hands.

    Baton bearer dangling from crane

    We were invited up to the top earlier for a look and, let me tell you, it's pretty scary standing on a bit of metal 150 feet above the ground.

    When Rob got to the bottom he had to unwind an awful lot of rope from the baton.

    "You'd think I was paranoid about this," he joked before handing the baton to Lynne Mitchell.

  67. St Margaret's Hospice

    Earlier this morning the relay paid a visit to Scotland's oldest hospice, St Margaret's in Clydebank, where a large crowd turned out to see proceedings.

    Large crowd of waving, smiling spectators.

    Highland dancers from the Margaret Rose School of Dance stopped jigging for long enough to pose with baton bearer Stephen McNulty.

  68. Baton weather

    BBC Weather's Peter Sloss has the forecast for today's baton relay.

    Peter says: "Staying dry, sunny and warm for much of the day but showers developing later this afternoon."

  69. Taking the scenic route

    Baton bearer Robert Watts clearly couldn't be bothered waiting for the lift at the top of the Titan crane.

    He's just abseiled the 150 feet (46m) back down to ground level.

    We're pleased to report both he and the baton made it in one piece.

  70. Titan crane

    The baton is now at the top of the 150 feet (46m) high Titan Crane, which was used in the construction of some of the largest ships of the 20th century including the Queen Elizabeth and QE2.

    The world's first electrically powered cantilever crane, the Category A-listed historical structure is now a tourist attraction.

  71. Baton bearer - Deborah Fagan

    Findlay Stein

    BBC Scotland

    Deborah Fagan decides to give us a little karaoke and used the baton as a microphone during her stint on the relay, as the sounds of Give it up by KC and The Sunshine Band filled the air.

    Deborah is a teacher at Dumbarton Academy where she runs the weekly Fit4Girls activity. She also takes the girls' football, volleyball, trampolining and basketball clubs.

    Her role in the zumba club may go some way to explaining her smooth dance moves.

  72. Baton bearer - Ted McGee

    Ted McGee carrried the baton in Whitecrook.

    Ted helped set up Clydebank Special Needs Forum in 1997, a voluntary-run organisation which delivers classes and projects for special needs children and young adults in West Dunbartonshire.

    He was also instrumental in setting up an out of school service for pupils from Kilpatrick School, now run by Enable Scotland.

  73. Back on the streets

    The relay has now left St Margaret's Hospice, carried by a kilted Stephen McNulty.

    Stephen hands over to Craig Newport.

  74. A day in the life of the Queen's Baton Relay

    Day 30 of the relay saw the baton travel from Fort William to Greenock.

    You can now watch its 12-hour journey compressed into under a minute in a day in the life of the Queen's Baton Relay.
