Falkirk's famous red phone boxes are up for adoption - for just £1
Three iconic red phone boxes in Falkirk are being offered to the community to adopt.
The famous landmarks are among 600 across Scotland being offered to local groups to give them a new lease of life.
The ‘Adopt A Kiosk’ scheme costs just £1.
Some phone boxes have been turned into mini history museums, book exchanges, and also as places for life-saving defibrillator units.
Alan Lees, BT enterprise unit director for Scotland, said: “With most people now using mobile phones, it’s led to a huge drop in the number of calls made from payphones.
“At the same time, mobile coverage has improved significantly in recent years due to investment in masts, particularly in rural areas.
“We’re currently rationalising our payphone estate to make it fit for the future, and the ‘Adopt a Kiosk’ scheme makes it possible for local communities to retain their local phone box, with a refreshed purpose for the community.”
