Christ­mas At The Botan­ics

The Scots Magazine - - Wild About Scotland -

Royal Botanic Gar­den Ed­in­burgh, Novem­ber 23 – De­cem­ber 29 (with clo­sures on some dates – check web­site for de­tails).

This stun­ning event played to five-star re­views when it burst colour­fully on to the scene last year, and 2018 prom­ises to be even bet­ter, with more than a mil­lion lights in­stalled through­out the Ed­in­burgh gar­dens. The team at the Botan­ics have cre­ated a mag­i­cal walk through the grounds, in­clud­ing a “cathe­dral of light” con­tain­ing more than 100,000 il­lu­mi­na­tions, a scented fire gar­den and a fes­tive fi­nale up at In­ver­leith House, with pro­jec­tions and mu­sic. The guided walk is around 1.5km (one mile) and is suit­able for all ages. Ex­tras along the way in­clude Santa and his elves, hot choco­late for the young­sters, and mulled wine and spiced cider for the adults. De­tails:
