Readers' panel: Smoking ban views
Smoking has now been banned in all enclosed public spaces and the BBC Scotland news website has asked a panel of readers to tell us their views on the new law.

Here, members of our panel share their experiences of being out and about during Scotland's first "smoke-free" weekend in cities, towns and villages around the country.
