More than 120 Scottish landmarks are to glow red in support of the Scottish Poppy Appeal.
Buildings large and small – from globally iconic castles to locally loved churches and schools – will ‘Light Up Red’ for Poppyscotland from now until Armistice Day on November 11.
Landmarks taking part in the nationwide display include Rosslyn Chapel in Midlothian, Edinburgh Castle, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow and Clydebank’s Titan Crane.
DC Thomson’s Meadowside building in Dundee will also be among those taking part.
Members of the public are being encouraged to take pictures of their local landmarks lit up red and to then share them on social media, tagging @Poppyscotland and using the hashtags #LightUpRed #BehindThemAlways and #ScottishPoppyAppeal.
Gordon Michie, Head of Fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “We want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone supporting this campaign.
“We are touched by the effort that hundreds of people have made in order to make this happen and to help us to shine a light on those who continue to need Poppyscotland’s vital, life-changing support today.
“It is incredible to witness so many buildings, up and down the country, glowing red in tribute to Scotland’s Armed Forces community past and present.
“It is a visual spectacle symbolising that when it comes to the country’s Service personnel, we are behind them. Always.”
