The flags outside the Scottish Parliament building are flying at half mast this morning to mark the funeral of Margaret Thatcher.
Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond is in Westminster to attend the ceremony.
The Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson, will also be among more than 2,000 guests at St Paul's Cathedral.
A debate on Margaret Thatcher's legacy which was due to be held at Holyrood today, was rescheduled for tomorrow after the Scottish Conservatives branded the timing "provocative and insensitive".
People gather to watch LadyThatcher's funeral at Grantham Museum.
A tattoo artist from Lady Thatcher's hometown Grantham has paid a life-long tribute to the 'Iron Lady' by having her head tattooed on his leg.
Louis Maier aged 32 wanted to have the six-inch work of art on his right calf to honour her.
The unusual design features Baroness Thatcher's head sitting on an ice cream cone complete with a flake.
The reason Mr Maier chose the colourful design was to mark Lady Thatcher's work as a research chemist prior to her political career.
During her time as a chemist she was part of a team said to invent the technique of pumping air into ice cream to produce a soft scoop version to reduce production costs.
In Grantham, Lincolnshire, later today a personalised rose will be unveiled in honour of Lady Thatcher.
The rose has been named 'Grantham's Thatcher Rose' and will be positioned in the civic area at the Guildhall next to the book of condolences. It will be replanted in Wyndham Park in the future.
The people of Grantham, Baroness Thatcher's home town, will be represented by the Leader of South Kesteven District Council at the funeral today.
Cllr Linda Neal said: "I am honoured to be able to represent people from Grantham and throughout South Kesteven as the nation says farewell to the woman who was born and educated in our town before going on to become the country's first and only female Prime Minister."
