Edinburgh’s Hogmanay: Release your inner Party Animal

The launch of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay took place on Wednesday and what a Hogmanay it looks set to be. For the first time in 16 years, celebrations have been expanded to the Royal Mile. The dramatic backdrop of the Old Town Buildings and fireworks from the Castle is sure to bring proceedings to another level.

Similarly to the Tattoo, celebrating Hogmanay in Edinburgh is a special occasion and one not to be missed! You get a real feel for Edinburgh, Scotland and Scottish culture and identity in a friendly and atmospheric environment.

Hogmanay 1 (RE)

The theme for this year’s Hogmanay is “Release your inner party animal” which will definitely add another dimension to the party atmosphere.

Our sister company Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Travel Office still has a number of Hogmanay packages available to suit your needs. From self-catering luxury apartments to 5 star Hotels, we can find the right accommodation to make your stay in Edinburgh a special one!
