The Tron Church
on New Year's Eve

Here, a crown can be seen gathered beneath the steeple of the Tron Church, with the clock showing midnight.

For many years, until around the early 1990s, the Tron Church was the traditional place for celebrating the New Year in Edinburgh.  The New Year Festivities are now a major tourist attraction, and take over the whole of central Edinburgh.

The Tron Church stands at the corner of the Royal Mile and South Bridge.  It is now (2002) a small Museum and Visitor's Centre for tourists.
