Lighting up campaign

This weekend, more than 120 Scottish landmarks will be glowing red in support of the Scottish Poppy Appeal – with more and more joining the national campaign each day. Buildings large and small – from globally iconic castles to locally loved churches and schools – will ‘Light Up Red’ for Poppyscotland in a wonderfully modern display Remembrance.

Check out our interactive map below for more information on each location, including timings lighting up. This year we have castles, cathedrals, museums, bridges, racecourses, schools, churches, hotels, cranes, lighthouses, fountains, ships… and even a telephone box! Please share photos on social media by tagging us in @Poppyscotland and using #LightUpRed #ScottishPoppyAppeal and #BehindThemAlways.

Please ignore the changing language of countries and seas the map. Information on each ‘poppy’ marked location is in English, including Light Up Red dates. We are looking into the glitch and will hopefully have it resolved soon! 

Take a look at ‘Never Forgetting, Always supporting’ time-lapse video.

From the First World War to the current day, we’ve been there for our Armed Forces community. We’ll never forget their sacrifices and we’ll always be there with our life-changing support.

 

Thank you to everyone who supported our 2018 campaign.

Here’s just a snapshot of the amazing support we received:

The M8’s iconic grass pyramids at the Pyramids Business Park, Bathgate, have three giant poppies painted onto them each year.

You can see the poppies from 23rd October 2019, watch them come together in our time-lapse video below:
