David Carry was the star of the show as the home nations had another successful day in the swimming pool at the Commonwealth Games.
Carry edged team-mate Euan Dale into second place in the 400 metres individual medley to become the first Scottish swimmer to win two Commonwealth gold medals since David Wilkie in 1974.
Carry, who won the 400m freestyle on Thursday, was joined in celebrating gold by English duo Simon Burnett and Rebecca Cooke.
Burnett won the 100m freestyle title in a Games record of 48.57 while Cooke defended her 800m freestyle crown as England increased their tally to 13 gold medals in the Games overall.
England also won a silver in the pool yesterday with Jenna Randall finishing second in the solo event of the synchronised swimming.
Randall narrowly missed out on picking up a second medal when she and Olivia Allison finished fourth in the duet competition.
Scotland won their first cycling gold medal of the Games with victory over England in the final of the men's team sprint.
The trio of Ross Edgar, Chris Hoy and Craig MacLean squeezed home ahead of the English team of Matt Crampton, Jason Queally and Jamie Staff following a thrilling final.
Mark Cavendish won the men's cycling scratch race final to earn the Isle of Man their first gold medal, Scotland James McCallum taking the bronze medal.
Wales also broke their gold duck in Melbourne with Michaela Breeze winning the 63kg category of the weight-lifting. England's Annette Campbell finished sixth in that event.
England claimed three golds in the shooting yesterday to add to the one won by Chris Hector and Mike Babb on Saturday and, with six days of competition remaining, they look sure to pass the record of five shooting golds they won four years ago in Manchester.
Teenage markswoman Charlotte Kerwood was again the star. Kerwood, who won gold as a 15-year-old at the Manchester Games, joined forces with Rachel Parish to win the double trap pairs title.
Earlier, Louise Minett and Becky Spicer took the women's 50m three-position rifle event, beating India's Anjali Mandar Bhagwat and Anuja Jung by a single point.
Glyn Barnett and Parag Patel then completed a hat-trick of gongs with a win by 0.06 points over Guernsey brothers Peter and Adam Jory.
England's Georgina Geikie and Julia Lydall also took bronze in the women's 10m air pistol pairs and Richard Faulds and Stevan Walton bronze in the men's double trap pairs.
Peter Nicol moved to within touching distance of his third successive Commonwealth Games squash title.
Former world No 1 Nicol won gold for Scotland in Kuala Lumpur and retained his title four years later as an Englishman.
He beat team-mate Nick Matthew 3-9, 9-5, 9-4, 9-5 to book a final date against Australian David Palmer, who beat England's Lee Beachill 9-0, 9-4, 9-4 in the other semi-final.

In the women's event, England qualified for the semi-finals despite being humbled 95-43 by tournament favourites Australia yesterday. England had won their opening two pool matches and will play either Nigeria or New Zealand in the semi-finals.
In netball, Wales lost to Samoa 49-42 while the Welsh also suffered defeat in the men's table tennis, going down 3-0 to Singapore in the semi-finals.
