start of Edinburgh's New Year Celebrations is celebrated by a Torchlight
Procession from The Royal Mile via The Mound, Princes Street and Waterloo
Place to the top of Calton Hill where there are floodlit monuments,
fireworks and a bonfire.
Here we look down from Calton Hill towards Princes Street and the clock
tower of the Balmoral Hotel as the procession as it makes its way along
Princes Street past the National Galleries, Scott Monument, Edinburgh
Wheel and Helter Skelter and the Balmoral Hotel.
The first of th torches were beginning to arrive at Calton Hill when
this photo was taken.
