Each year buildings and landmarks across the country show their support for the Scottish Poppy Appeal in a thoroughly modern way, by lighting up red in the run up to Remembrance Day. 2018 marked the Centenary of the end of the First World War and nearly 200 locations took part. Find them all on our interactive map below.
If you can light up, then please contact Jude Smart at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know the full details. Any structure is welcome; last year we had castles, cathedrals, museums, bridges, racecourses, hotels, cranes, lighthouses, fountains, ships… and even a telephone box! Have a look at our 2018 map of venues that took part. We will be adding our 2019 map soon!

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:
