The Lewis War Memorial was turned a striking red for this year’s Poppy Scotland appeal.
Point and Sandwick Trust’s engineering consultant Tony Robson fitted red filters onto Comhairle nan Eilean Siar’s existing floodlights.
He also helped to arrange a slideshow projection – being shown on the side of the Old Knock School in Point, where the community wind farm charity’s offices are located.
The images projected portrayed some of the islanders who made the ultimate sacrifice in the two world wars.
The trust turned its Beinn Ghrideag turbines red for last year’s appeal but this year chose to light up the war memorial, which sits above Stornoway.
Beinn Ghrideag developer Calum MacDonald said: “The War Memorial is something that we’ve all grown up with and sometimes we just ignore it or forget about it but at this time it’s a really important and powerful monument.
“I think it should be the first building in our thoughts when we’re thinking about lighting up for Poppy Day.”
Tony received help from staff in the Stornoway Library and and from Malcolm Macdonald, chair of Stornoway Historical Society and co-author of Iolaire book The Darkest Dawn, in his quest for pictures.
Mr Macdonald also sourced pictures for the projection display from magazines, including The War Illustrated and a number of online sites.
The graphics were created by Steven MacAskill, 16, from North Tolsta.
Mr Macdonald said: “The War Memorial is an edifice that can be seen from the four parishes of the island.”
