The Sir Walter Scott Monument lit up for Remembrance Day


ONE of Edinburgh’s most famous landmarks has been lit red to mark Remembrance weekend.


Poppy Scotland and Edinburgh Council worked together to light up The Sir Walter Scott Monument in memory of those who died in war, one of the many dedications to Remembrance Day up and down the UK.

A Garden of Remembrance, where people can pay their respects, has been set up at the base of the monument by Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory and Poppy Scotland.


The west side of the monument has been surrounded by poppies attached to miniature crosses and the east side of the monument is presented as a garden allowing people to walk amongst the memorials that have been placed.
