Let Pillow take you to one of the best New Years celebrations in the world. The annual event on Princes Street is something everybody should experience at least once in their lifetime!
Hogmanay is the Scottish word for the last day of the year, and is synonymous with the New Years street celebration in central Edinburgh. The capital city of Scotland is a fantastic place to visit at any time of the year, however the cities New Years celebrations are regarded as some of the best in the world and the biggest in Europe. Hogmanay now attracts over 100,000 people and includes 4 days of processions, concerts and fireworks.
Our 5 day, 4 night tour allows you to experience the best Hogmanay has to offer, and we celebrate all day as we see in the New Zealand and Australian New Years. The tour price also includes a ticket to the official New Year events (includes live bands, fireworks and access to Princes Street at midnight). For the brave we also visit the Loony Dook mid winter swim on New Years Day! This annual tradition involves locals (often in fancy dress) taking a dip in the freezing cold River Forth.
If all this is not enough, on Tuesday 30 December 2014 we will throw in an amazing day trip. After breakfast we will travel via the iconic Forth Road Bridge to visit the amazing Stirling Castle (The famous one from Braveheart) and then we visit Glengoyne for a fantastic whisky distillery tour. We promise to get to back to Edinburgh in time for the lovely (optional) candle light procession.
