The BBC reports that Scotland set an all-time March high temperature record of 22.8°C on Sunday:
Fyvie Castle, in Aberdeenshire, recorded a temperature of 22.8C shortly after 15:30, edging past the previous high of 22.2C.

This had been set in March 1957 at Gordon Castle, in Moray, and again at Strachan, in Kincardineshire, in 1965.

The warmest ever UK March day stands at 25.6C, which was set at Mepal in Cambridgeshire in 1968.

Temperatures continue to break records across parts of the UK. Cromdale in Moray reached 23.2 deg C on Monday breaking the record set the day before for the warmest March day in Scotland.
