THE monument to Sir Walter Scott in Princes Street Gardens has been bathed in a red light to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the First World War.
The Scott Monument was illuminated in poppy red on Friday night, and will remain as such until November 11 - Remembrance Day.
A number of Remembrance events are due to be held throughout Edinburgh over the next few days to mark the centenary of the ‘Great War’.
At the foot of the monument is the Legion Scotland Garden of Remembrance, opened on November 3.
Thousands of crosses have been installed in the Garden of Remembrance, including a special Afghanistan plot to commemorate the 453 servicemen killed in action during the conflict.
