Buckle your seat belts, this flight will be landing in Edinburgh. Edinburgh is Scotland’s compact, hilly capital and is known for its literary heritage, historic cobbled streets, and striking architecture. Not to forget its world-famous whisky walks and festivals.

“Hogmanay” isn’t just a tongue-twisting Scottish term – it’s the ultimate Scottish shindig for bidding adieu to the old and welcoming the new! Edinburgh’s Hogmanay festival? Oh, it’s like the grand marshal of New Year’s Eve parties, sweeping its stuff as one of the planet’s most colossal celebrations.

Now, hold onto your kilts – the main event unfolds on New Year’s Eve itself, boasting a bustling street bash, a colossal ceilidh (yep, that’s a proper dance party!), a jaw-dropping concert, and a sky ablaze with fireworks. But hey, the party doesn’t stop there! Before Hogmanay and even after, there’s a whole feast of festive goodness waiting to be devoured. Moving on, let’s give you a tour of the city.

Ever tried Cullen skink? It’s a creamy soup concoction brimming with smoked haddock and potatoes, a true belly-warming delight. And let’s not forget the Caledonian cobbler – a meaty pie stuffed with lamb or beef, crowned with a glorious mashed potato cap. Now, onto the sweet sensations!
