Edinburgh's Hogmanay


  • Edinburgh Scotland (map)

One of the world’s largest New Year celebrations, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay is a three-day event that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Scottish capital each year. The festival begins with a torchlight procession in Old Town, followed by a range of parades and music performances back dropped by Edinburgh Castle. Join the big New Year’s Eve party on Princes Street and stay to sing the Scots folk song, Auld Lang Syne, with other revellers as the midnight bell rings in the new year. If you have a friend in town, make sure to bring a bottle of whiskey for good fortune when you visit their home. www.edinburghfestivalcity.com
