Irvine’s national maritime museum will once again light up red for the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

The exterior of the vast, A Listed, Victorian Linthouse will turn red from Sunday November 1 to Wednesday, November 11 to mark Remembrance Sunday on November 8 and Armistice Day on Wednesday, November 11.

Each year the national Light Up Red campaign raises awareness of the Scottish Poppy Appeal with buildings large and small lit up across the country.

Stuart Rich, Visitor Services Manager at the Scottish Maritime Museum said:“With COVID-19 having a massive impact on the appeal’s ability to run street collections, they need as many buildings and organisations as possible to take part and help raise more awareness than ever before.”
