Last Saturday, thousands of people across Scotland turned off their lights for one hour at 8.30pm for Earth Hour. Supporters laid out over 3,000 candles spelling “Climate Action Now!” in massive letters on Edinburgh Castle esplanade just before the big switch off, creating beautiful and striking images.

Meanwhile, communities throughout Scotland took part in local events.

Overwhelmed with the support of People's Postcode Lottery's players, Dr Richard Dixon, Director of WWF Scotland, sent on thanks to all of our players.

Plans are already underway for Earth Hour 2013, to make it a another brilliant success. Find out more at
