Is there no better place to celebrate New Year than Edinburgh?  It’s not just about what happens on ‘one night’ …  there are several events held late December and early January.

For a start there’s the torchlight procession, a fun, non-flame throwing family event just before New Year’s Eve.

Not forgetting the Edinburgh Wheel on Princes Street where you can go round and round and round.  And round.

And the outdoor food and drink on offer to warm yer body. Sometimes nothing beats warm alcohol.  Especially when it’s cold.

Edinburgh – cheers!

Plus the street party, concerts and ultimately the fireworks lighting up the sky.
