Ayr’s Racecourse and Wallace Tower lit up red last week in support of the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

Both buildings joined more than 120 Scottish landmarks in the wonderful display of Remembrance, with other locations in Ayrshire, including Irvine’s Portal Leisure Centre and Scottish Maritime Museum as well as Kilmarnock’s Floral Clock.

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.”

Buildings large and small – from globally iconic castles to locally loved churches and schools – lit up red for Poppyscotland in a wonderfully modern display of Remembrance

Members of the public were 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.
