DAY 1 - Edinburgh
Edinburgh
So special is the new year ahead of us that it goes by its very own name. This isn't just your average turn of the calendar - we're doing Hogmanay! When we join forces in Edinburgh today our good spirits will be flowing: the emotional kind, not yet the boozy kind. 
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
City orientation walk of Edinburgh
Edinburgh
Here we are in Edinburgh, our base camp for the next 5-days. Home to William Wallace, this city is all about historical cool. With it's Castle on the hill, cobbled streets and no doubt kilt-clad locals, the capital of the land of haggis and whisky will impress. But first up, we settle into our swanky nest before we get orientated with the city and start the festivities. 
Stay
Smartstay Hostel (or similar)
DAY 2 - Edinburgh
Edinburgh

Now remember, unlike parties going on in the rest of the world, this one goes for 3 whole days. Don't peak too early! You'll want to be full of beans right 'til the end to make the most of this. And you should also make the most of being in this incredible city. Stroll down Prince’s Street & the Royal Mile, visit Edinburgh’s famous castle & join the crowds tonight for Hogmanay's opening Torchlight Procession. The celebrations kick off with fire torches and a procession of the oh so keen marching down the street, so grab one and join in the party! Look up and you'll see a viking ship burning on Carlton Hill and with music, street performers, and a drink or two, it's a night to remember. 

Stay
Smartstay Hostel (or similar)
DAY 3 - Edinburgh - New Year's Eve
Edinburgh

Thousands of people from all across the world making mayhem on the streets, dancing under fireworks & soaking up live music aplenty - welcome to New Year's Eve Scottish style! Take a late start to the day before enjoying some good food and winter city magic before the party begins. Your included ticket to the festivities is exactly what you need to start the night off on the right foot. Ice-skating, carnival rides, and dancing anyone? We say yes.

DAY 4 - Edinburgh - New Year's Day
Edinburgh

Though the parties will still be kicking on across the city, this day is yours to ring in the new year as you see fit. A late breakfast, a city stroll and a spot of shopping might be all your danced out feet can muster. But for the more adventurous types, join the New Year tradtion and parade down the street before taking a dip in the freezing Firth of Forth for a charity plunge. If you're not tired out, then channel your Scotsman and head for a stroll to Arthurs Seat for the city's best views. Ahh Edinburgh, we're in love. Tonight, why not join the group for dinner and a show and hear bagpipers do their thing over some delicious local eats.
