People have gathered across Scotland to honour fallen soldiers on Remembrance Day.
Events took place across the country with thousands falling silent for two minutes of sombre reflection at 11am.
Nicola Sturgeon attended a wreath-laying ceremony in Edinburgh to remember the country’s war dead.
The First Minister was joined by Scottish secretary Alister Jack, Lord Provost Frank Ross and senior military personnel outside Edinburgh City Chambers.
More than 25 wreaths were laid at the Stone of Remembrance with 101-year-old Second World War veteran Jack Ransom in attendance.
Minister of St Giles Cathedral Reverend Calum MacLeod read Binyon’s Lines: “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn, at the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.”
It comes as the Queen missed the service at the Cenotaph in London after spraining her back.
It is understood the monarch has not received hospital treatment for her back and the injury is unrelated to recent medical advice for her to rest.
Last year’s events were largely cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions, giving today’s ceremonies an added significance for those in attendance.
