According to the Met Office the north-east has seen the UK’s coldest temperature of the last 24 hours with Braemar recording an icy -8.1c last night.
The city still felt chilling temperatures of -6.3c throughout the night.
And Balmoral didn’t manage to push the mercury above freezing yesterday, only reaching a maximum temperature of -3.6c.
The temperatures earned the region the title as the top five coldest parts in the UK last night.

A rather cloudy morning in the west, but some bright or sunny spells likely across eastern Aberdeenshire. Sunny spells are likely to improve in the afternoon. Dry with light westerly winds. Maximum temperature 4 °C.
