Finance Secretary Derek Mackay has insisted his Budget gives Scots the ''best deal'' in the UK, despite coming under fire from the Tories for making some taxpayers pay more than south of the border.
Leonardo DiCaprio To Visit Scotland
Leonardo DiCaprio is expected to follow in the footsteps of George Clooney and visit a Scottish social enterprise cafe later this year.
The Oscar winner is believed to have accepted an invitation to travel to Edinburgh in support of Social Bite, a sandwich shop that feeds, trains and employs local homeless people.
The Hollywood star will also speak at the Scottish Business Awards during his first visit to Scotland.
Clooney paid a visit to Social Bite last November and launched an appeal to help homeless people and fund an aid convoy carrying food and clothing to travel to refugee camps across Europe.
It received so many donations that Social Bite said surplus funds would ensure free hot meals and drinks can be provided to the homeless community in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen for a year.
Fans lined Rose street in the Scottish capital last year to welcome Clooney who took time to chat to the crowd and posed for selfies with Social Bite staff before speaking at the Scottish Business Awards.
Founded by Josh Littlejohn, around a quarter of the staff at the social enterprise have previously been homeless.
DiCaprio, who won an Oscar for his role in The Revenant, is also an environmental campaigner and charity activist.
