Isle of Cumbrae bus driver Robert Wilson got into the spirit of things during the hottest day of the year last Thursday by sporting his Caribbean calypso shirt when on duty.
The island was among many places to top 30 degrees Celsius, and Millport even had the Scottish record with the warmest overnight temperature at 17 degrees Celsius according to STV weatherman Sean Batty.
And Largs could be mistaken for Stateside with its balmy temperatures with speedboats and jet-skis on the coast, and lots of visitors enjoying the prom!
On Twitter, David Patterson was impressed with the palm trees on his visit to to the coast, and said: "Largs or Miami? West of Scotland truly is a wonderful place in the sun!"
Sunshine and record-breaking temperatures have greeted the west coast of Scotland - and the spell of beautiful weather is set to continue.
There have been long queues at ice cream kiosks, while pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants have reported good takings.
Indeed, it is a far cry from 1 July last year when Largs Camera Club member Jack Boyle posted a picture of his rain splattered window sill which greeted the first day of the school holidays.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
Jack said: "Even the temp was only about 15C last July. We are to keep this heatwave for another month, so they say." 
It was the perfect weekend for the Kelburn Garden Party music festival, with thousands of revellers enjoying the live music celebration.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
Allison Forsyth, owner of The Ritz Cafe in Millport, said: "It has been very busy. Apparently the heatwave it is to last for another four weeks - long may it continue!
"There is no chance of us running out of ice cream - that is always a priority, but what we have noticed is that it is now a lot busier in the evenings. A lot more people are staying out and enjoying the good weather.
"There is no doubt that the good weather has been a real boost."
And despite the searing heat, it is full praise to our council workers from Largs man Archie Burleigh who saw the team out working on their 4-6pm shift on Sunday clearing out all the packed bins on the prom.
He said: "Hats off to our local Street Scene boys keeping our wee town clean - and well done to the public for using the bins."
However, Dementia UK have warned the public to keep a check on their elderly neighbours during the heatwave.
The long term BBC Weather forecast for Largs suggests the sunshine is to continue with the temperature remaining between 19-22 C over the coming weeks.
