Edinburgh’s 3-day Hogmanay festivities lit up the Old Town and Holyrood Park last night with the annual torchlight procession.

Following a different route, under new Edinburgh's Hogmanay organisers Underbelly, the opening event of the New Year’s festival saw around 17,000 torchbearers form a river of fire down the Royal Mile, process past Holyrood Palace and the Parliament up to Holyrood Park.
