The opening event of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay 2013/14 and start of the ‘Year of Homecoming Scotland 2014’ got underway tonight with the spectacular Torchlight Procession.
Thousands of torch carriers led by Shetland’s Up Helly Aa’ Vikings and the massed pipes and drums marched through the city centre to a spectacular Son et Lumière and fireworks finale at Calton Hill.
