More than 120 buildings and landmarks across Scotland are lit up red this weekend to remember those who have been lost to war.

The "Light Up Red" campaign is in support of the Scottish Poppy Appeal, which helps veterans in need and is held as Remembrance Sunday takes place.

Most buildings will be lighting up from now until Armistice Day, on 11th November. A full list of locations across Scotland, and details on timings can be found on PoppyScotland.

People have been sharing pictures of local landmarks lit up red on social media:




Gordon Michie, Head of Fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “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.”
