New York was flooded with kilts this weekend for the 17th annual #NYTartanWeek Parade.
Bands from across Scotland, the United States and Canada joined the parade, with Oban High School and Lanark & District's Pipe Bands marching in the city for the first time.
Leading the parade was Scottish actor Graham McTavish - known worldwide for his role as Dougal MacKenzie in Outlander and Dwalin in the Hobbit films - who was 'Grand Marshal' of the event.
Alongside McTavish was the Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament, the Rt Hon Tricia Marwick.
McTavish said: "It is a singular honour to follow in the footsteps of previous Grand Marshals.
"I hope I can live up to the illustrious tradition established by my predecessors and bring pride to my family, clan and nation"
Alan Bain, president of the National Tartan Day New York Committee, also discussed the importance of the event.
He said: "I remember well the first Tartan Day Parade along the sidewalks of Third Avenue.
"I am proud this year, on our 17th Anniversary of the parade, to see us grow from strength to strength - a day for all to celebrate their Scottish American heritage."
Even our universities were out in force
The parade was part of a seven-day event showcasing the best of our nation, with activities spreading across New York, Los Angeles and Toronto for Scotland Week 2015.
The event was officially launched last week at Glasgow artist Gerard Burn's exhibition, in which Alan Cumming, Billy Connolly and Breaking Bad actress Laura Fraser were in attendance.
