Ceremonies will be held across the north-east for remembrance Sunday.

Representatives of the Armed Forces and ex-service organisations will gather in the newly reopened Remembrance Hall at Aberdeen Art Gallery at 9.45am.

A parade to the War Memorial will then be led from Belmont Street to the War Memorial on Schoolhill where a short ceremony will be held at 10.50am.

Lord Provost Barney Crockett will lead the laying of wreaths and a church service will be held at the Kirk of St Nicholas Uniting afterwards.

He said: “Aberdeen has a proud history of support for our armed forces and this weekend we will once again show our respect and admiration for the bravery and courage displayed by servicemen and women past and present.”

Six locations across Aberdeenshire will be glowing red for the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

The Capitol building in Aberdeen, Rhynie Church, The War Memorial in Rhynie, the WWI Memorial Arch in Turriff, Poppy Garden in Turriff and Maryculter Hotel will all be taking part.

Visitors are also being encouraged to take photos of the local landmarks and share them on social media, tagging Poppy Scotland and using the hashtags #LightUpRed #BehindThemAlways and #ScottishPoppyAppeal.

Gordon Michie, head of fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “It is a visual spectacle symbolising that when it comes to the country’s service personnel, we are behind them. Always.”

Aberdeen University will be filling their library with sound at 3pm on Sunday as part of a new act of remembrance.

They will be joining musicians around the world as part of the  #iPlay4Peace initiative which aims to create and new and lasting form of remembrance.

Remembrance Sunday Services will be held at churches across the region including St Peter’s in Fraserburgh, St Mary’s  in Ellon, All Saints in Buckie, St Andrew’s in Banff, St Machar’s in Bucksburn and St Mary’s and St James’ in Aberdeen.

St Magnus’ in Lerwick, St Matthew’s in Oldmeldrum and All Saints in Whiterashes will also be holding services.
