Edinburgh Torchlight Procession

Every new year Edinburgh celebrates in style. One of the most memorable highlights is the torchlight procession. Whether taking part or a spectator, the beautiful sight of hundreds of torch carriers creates a special atmosphere which you simply don’t want to miss on your visit to Edinburgh.

Harlaw Reservoir is a lovely spot in the Pentland Hills close to Balerno. There are plenty of great walking routes and picturesque scenes to take in. Highly recommended.
