The iconic sounds of Scotland welcomed the country's two newest inhabitants over the weekend: Two 8-year-old giant pandas.

Sweetie and Sunshine arrived at the Edinburgh airport on Sunday on a specially chartered flight. The pandas from China are on loan to the Edinburgh Zoo for 10 years.

Officials hope the pandas will breed and serve as a signal of a better relationship between the two countries.
