It is almost impossible to imagine the magnitude of the impact of the First World War, both on Scotland and the rest of the world. In the 100 years since its outbreak, there are only a handful of individuals remaining who were alive at the time of the conflict, while those who actively engaged in it are no longer with us. But this period in history does not only endure in the pages of history and austere stone memorials.
There are places and attractions across the country where you can find connections to the First World War and gain a deeper understanding of its lasting legacy. From military relics and fascinating museums to well-known buildings which played a part on the Home Front, these are just some of the reminders of this turbulent time in history which can be seen in Scotland.
