Huge projections of Sir Billy Connolly lit up landmarks in Glasgow and Edinburgh to celebrate the launch of a new book.

The Big Yin’s face was seen on Glasgow City Chambers and the Royal Mile, among other places, early on Thursday.

Some of the legendary Scottish comedian’s material and thoughts are told in new book Tall Tales and Wee Stories.

Connolly, 76, has written about experiencing stage fright and how he finds his home city of Glasgow the hardest place to perform.

Ali Findlay, founder of creative agency The Lane, which supported the launch, said: “When we heard about the opportunity to support The Big Yin with the launch of Tall Tales and Wee Stories, we knew we had to get involved.

“We’re all thrilled to have teamed up with the brilliant people at Double Take Projections to support this celebration of his legendary talent and creativity.”
