Shocking pictures of the inferno at Cameron House which claimed the lives of two guests feature on almost all of Scotland's front pages on Tuesday.

A firefighter on a ladder carried the child to safety before his parents were led down the ladder to safety, reports the Scottish Daily Mail.

More than 200 guests were evacuated from the hotel as the fire took hold, according to the i newspaper. It has left the historic building "extensively damaged".

In the Daily Express, witnesses described "total pandemonium" as staff hammered on doors and windows urging people to flee the building.
