As in previous years, the 2017 Torchlight Procession opens the annual Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations with around 8,000 torchbearers creating a "river of fire" down the Royal Mile. The previous year saw around 30,000 people come out for the event.

Traditionally, Hogmanay is marked in Scotland with friends and first footing at the strike of midnight in the New Year.
