The global coronavirus pandemic has had a big impact on all areas of lives – and this year, that meant for many of us going abroad wasn’t an option.
But many of you sent in pictures of your summer staycations around Scotland.
As the summer holidays are over and pupils return to school, we’ve put together a selection of some of the best ones.
Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure you follow current coronavirus guidelines and take your pictures safely and responsibly, and that you adhere to the BBC’s rules regarding photographs which can be found here.
