Names of Scots who died in WWI projected onto Parliament
The installation will feature poppies and pictures of those who served their country.
The names of Scots who died serving in WWI will be projected onto the Scottish Parliament building.
The tribute will take place on Sunday, marking the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
As darkness falls, the building will be illuminated with poppies and pictures of those who served during WWI, with the installation honouring the 134,712 men and women listed in the Scottish National War Memorial Roll of Honour.
Along with Scottish servicemen, the names of those projected will include nurses, munitions factory workers, Merchant Navy personnel, and overseas servicemen who fought on behalf of Scotland.
It will take seven hours to project the names of all those who died, reflecting the sheer scale of loss and sacrifice that generation made for the country.
Set to music, the illumination - which will be projected onto the whole facade of the Parliament - will include images and designs that tell the story of the conflict.
Throughout the event there will be performances by pipers from across Scotland, and the projection will conclude at midnight with the Last Post.

Designed by artist Ross Ashton, the projection titled Their Name Liveth is the result of a partnership between the Scottish Parliament, the Scottish National War Memorial and The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
The Presiding Officer, the Rt. Hon. Ken Macintosh MSP said: "This illumination will be a poignant tribute to all those who died and a powerful reminder to us today of their sacrifice.
"It is the centrepiece of the Parliament's plans to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I and I hope as many people as possible will join us on Armistice Day to view what will be a truly unique illumination.
