Poppyscotland is looking for more locations to “Light Up Red”, along with the Titan Crane in Clydebank, for this year’s appeal.

Each year, buildings and landmarks across the country are lit up red to show support for the Scottish Poppy Appeal in the run-up to Remembrance Day.

Last year, as part of the commemorations of the centenary of the end of the First World War, almost 200 locations were lit up, including the Titan Crane in Clydebank, the award-winning West Dunbartonshire Council building on Church Street, Dumbarton, and the Lomond Galleries.

If you have a building with external lighting and can get hold of red gel filters for those lights, then you can help the armed forces charity and illuminate your premises red from November 4 to 11.

The charity is calling on mass involvement from schools, churches, council buildings, monuments, statues and landmarks.

Any structure is welcome; the list in 2018 included everything from castles and cathedrals to racecourses, cranes, fountains, and even a telephone box.

Gordon Michie, head of fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “It is wonderful to know that Scotland will be lighting up red once again for this year’s Poppy Appeal, and we continue to be touched by the country’s support. It is so striking and poignant to witness buildings up and down the country glowing red in tribute to Scotland’s Armed Forces community past and present.”
