By edg - Posted on 01 January 2014

The official Homecoming 2014 promotional video from VisitScotland has a Hogmanay feel to it with fiery motifs featured throughout and imagery from Hogmanay events including the Loony Dook and torchlight procession.

The video also highlights major upcoming sporting events the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games, as well as the 10-day Forth Bridges Festival in September, which celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge and Bannockburn Live, a 3-day festival in June marking the famous Scots victory against the English 700 years ago.

The Bannockburn Live programme promises a "brutally realistic" re-enactment of the medieval Battle of Bannockburn.

A programme that includes live music, Scottish food and drink, crafts, literature and outdoor activities among themed villages is also lined up for the Bannockburn festival.
