Landmarks are turning purple in Milngavie and Bearsden for

A total of three local landmarks in Bearsden and Milngavie will be illuminated purple to raise awareness of a good cause, via an event that started in Canada.

Purple Day will take place on Sunday March 26 after Epilepsy Scotland followed the example of nine-year-old Cassidy Megan who started the event back in 2008 to get people talking about the condition.

Milngavie Town Hall, Bearsden Community Hub and the courtyard in Mugdock Country Park will all be floodlit with the coloured light.
