Scottish landmarks get a nose job for Comic Relief

Red noses have been appearing in unusual places as Scottish icons have a makeover in aid of Comic Relief.

Motorists and passers-by have been chuckling at some of Scotland's best loved sculptures undergoing some cosmetic alterations for Comic Relief.

The 'Big Heids' sculpture at Eurocentral on the M8 are sporting redder noses than usual.

The Duke of Wellington statue outside Glasgow's GOMA has lost his usual traffic cone hat and had it replaced with a red nose instead.

Kevin Cahill, Chief Executive of Comic Relief said 'These monuments have a special place in peoples' hearts and the Red Noses are a fantastic addition to some of Scotland's best loved landmarks. I defy anyone to pass these and not laugh. Red Nose Day is all about having a laugh, raising money and changing lives for the better.'

Other sculptures sporting a red nose include fairytale characters at Storybook Glen in Aberdeen.
