First Minister to attend St Giles Remembrance Service.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will attend the annual National Remembrance Service at St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.

She will lay a Wreath at the Stone of Remembrance on behalf of the people of Scotland.

Ahead of the service, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:

"Remembrance Sunday is an opportunity for all of Scotland, in common with people in many other nations across the world, to pause in sombre reflection to commemorate the loss of life in conflicts large and small over the last century.

"It is a chance to honour the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, while also paying tribute to our veterans and those who continue to serve today.

"The laying of a wreath is a small but significant tribute, and I am privileged to do so on behalf of the people of Scotland."
