However, Twitter user @ALbagal1314 called the punters out for being too close, writing: “Not much social distancing under those brollies.

“A lot less chance of Covid-19 spreading in the pub.”

Scotland began to ease out of a four month long lockdown on Monday with pubs being allowed to sell alcohol outside until 10pm.

Despite the overcast and wet weather lots of Scots have been enjoying their first pint in months since the country went into lockdown on December 26.
