The first minister has led Remembrance Sunday events being held across Scotland.
Nicola Sturgeon laid a wreath at the Stone of Remembrance at Edinburgh City Chambers with Lord Provost Frank Ross, before a service at St Giles’ Cathedral.
She gave a reading to commemorate those who had lost their lives in armed conflict.
Her deputy, John Swinney attended an event in Glasgow’s George Square.
The SNP was being represented by Ian Blackford at the service at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London, while Veterans Minister Graeme Dey took part in a service on board HMS Unicorn in Dundee.
A two-minute silence was observed across the country at 11:00.
Scottish Parliament Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh and Advocate General Lord Keen joined veterans, serving members of the armed forces and emergency services, and representatives from different faiths at the St Giles service.
In her address, Ms Sturgeon said of those who lost their lives serving their country: “Their sacrifice is responsible for the freedoms and the way of life that we take for granted today.
“This is an opportunity to give gratitude, to show our respect, and to send a message that that sacrifice will never be forgotten.
“I’m privileged today to lay a wreath on behalf of the people of Scotland and I do so with the utmost gratitude and respect, not just for the sacrifices of the past, but for the courage and the sacrifices of our armed forces today.”
Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard said: “On Remembrance Sunday every year, we reflect not on the glory of war – but on the huge sacrifice that was made so that we can stay free.
“Many families in Scotland lost loved ones in the First World War and the Second World War.
“We all have a responsibility to remember the sacrifice they made, and to hold the families they have left behind in our thoughts.
“Let us resolve once again to think about how we can build and sustain peace in the future, while never forgetting the sacrifices of the past.”
