Christmas, or Xmas for non-believers, used to be a quiet period in Edinburgh. It's less so now, although (Edinburgh's Hogmanay aside) it's still not quite as mad as the hurlyburly of the Edinburgh Festival in August.

7:00 pm

As in previous years, the 2018 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.
