There’s so much to offer in Scotland for New Year but with many options it can be a little overwhelming. In light of this, we’ve made a round up of our personal favourites!

 

Street Party

Ceilidh under the Castle

Celebrations Kick off at 8:30pm on the 31st of December

Start the New Year the Scottish way at the Ceilidh under the Castle. Whirl or jig, fling or be flung under the watchful eye of Edinburgh Castle. Join hands with old friends and new to dance in the New Year with a full ceilidh band and plenty of local food and drink to keep you spinning all night. This year’s jigs and reels will be brought to you by some smashing ceilidh bands, to be announced!

Torchlight Procession

Happens the day before Hogmanay, 7:00pm on the 30th of December

Blaze through the city accompanied by pipers and drummers, fire and fanfare and forge a river of light through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. A spectacular and unforgettable family-friendly event culminating in the historic Holyrood Park.

Bairns ‘Afore

 

31st of December on the 31st at 5pm

The Bairns’ ‘Afore makes for the our favourite family- friendly Hogmanay experience imaginable.

Join Dick and Dom, the comedy duo from the ‘telly, playing the best tunes to get you dancing and singing along. The event is all topped off by its very own spectacular fireworks, allowing the same excitement as the adult’s street party later on. It’s the best way to celebrate as a clan and still get the kids home to bed before the madness starts.

 

 

Loony Dook

Jump in on the 1st of January at 2:15pm

Take part in this wild Scottish New Year’s Day tradition. There’s no way to shake off a Hogmanay hangover like braving the chill of the Firth of the Forth. Put on your fanciest dress (We’ve seen all sorts, from superheros to ducks) and parade with your fellow Dookers down South Queensferry High Street and hop right in. Many people taking the dook use it as a opportunity to raise money for a charity of their choosing.

If you aren’t feeling courageous enough to take on the dook, you can watch from several vantage points down the beach or along the parade route.
