President Joe Biden has been seen leaving a hotel in Edinburgh for Glasgow this morning.
President Biden has been staying at Dalmahoy House in Kirknewton while attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) and joining world leaders and delegates to discuss the climate crisis.
He has been escorted by a fleet of cortegees, about 20 of which are counted cars and have a thumbs up to the press and spectators.
Bauer Media reports that the engine maps are expected to expand ‘rapidly to around 40’ to transport the president 42 miles between cities for the climate conference, COP26.

However, Biden’s trip to Scotland is not going to be planned, according to Bauer Media, as the White House originally planned to fly the president by helicopter from Dalmahoy Hotel to Glasgow.
But cars were chosen instead because of concerns about the weather conditions and the plane that sank into the damp soil on the estate.
Edinburgh recently experienced heavy rains causing local floods last week and strong winds are expected to subside in the west of Scotland.
