Cheshire Life - - Finer Things -

It’s pre­dictable – but you can’t have a round-up of New Year’s Eve shindigs and not men­tion the Scot­tish city. As Hog­manay hits, there are silent dis­cos and street per­form­ers, ice skating and twinkly Christ­mas craft mar­kets. Throngs of rev­ellers gaze open-mouthed at the Vik­ing-style Torch­light pro­ces­sion, where py­rotech­nic per­form­ers blast out flames and torch-wield­ing crowds walk through the city streets. Move quickly though as events sell out fast. Or fol­low the lead of the lo­cals as they hud­dle up with blan­kets and bot­tles, and party at In­ver­leith Park to watch the fire­works for noth­ing be­fore hol­ing up in a good-time pub.

Book it: Catch the train from Manch­ester Pic­cadilly to Ed­in­burgh, op­er­ated by Transpen­nine Ex­press, from £40. Rooms Eden Locke from £79. lock­e­liv­ing.com
