Light Up Red Campaign for Scottish Poppy Appeal

From Friday 10th to Sunday 13th November, Drumlanrig Castle will glow in red as it lights up for the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

Drumlanrig Castle lit up red for Poppy Appeal


The Light Up Red campaign is a national event where landmarks and buildings across the whole of Scotland light up to support and raise awareness for the cause.

Drumlanrig Castle will proudly light up red to support the Armed Forces and raise awareness of the appeal again this year. As per normal winter opening hours, the public are welcome to visit the Estate throughout the campaign period and will be able to view and admire the Castle, with the stirring red illuminations.
