He was sentenced at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on January 29 to 20 months in prison and has now been added to the Sex Offenders Register.
Detective Inspector Adrian Ure, of Police Scotland’s National Child Abuse Investigation Unit, said: “Reid's online behaviour was reprehensible with no regard to the young victims depicted in the images he was viewing.“He believed that the internet would provide anonymity and allow him to undertake his offending undetected.
"This was not the case, and as a result of our enquiries he will now face the consequences of his actions.
“Any form of child sexual abuse is a serious criminal offence and is a priority for Police Scotland. We encourage anyone with concerns about a child at risk of abuse, or a potential victim, to contact Police immediately on 101 or 999 if it is an emergency.”
