Day 1 of Edinburgh Hogmanay in photos

day 1 hogmanay

We are proud to be a part of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations. The Torchlight Procession is the official start of three-days of spectacular Edinburgh’s Hogmanay events, finishing with our display Son et Lumiere on the top of Calton Hill with many 1,000’s of fireworks at the same time. Take a look at our photos from day 1 of Edinburgh Hogmanay.

Tomorrow we will light the skyline of Edinburgh up with four fireworks displays as part of the city’s Hogmanay extravaganza. The fireworks will be at 21:00, 22:00 and 23:00, followed by the midnight spectacular from Edinburgh Castle and Calton Hill. The midnight display is five minutes long, with many fireworks fired at the same time.

If each effect were fired individually, the display would last for four hours. And officials said that if the lift height of each effect was measured and added together the combined reach would stretch from Edinburgh to Paris.
