Security Scotland provided security & stewarding services to the Edinburgh Torchlight Parade on the eve of the Hogmanay Street Party.

Around 20,000 people, including 17,000 torchbearers, took part in a procession through Edinburgh city centre to mark the opening of¬†Edinburgh’s Hogmanay¬†festival.

The torchlight parade on Saturday also included 30 Vikings from Shetland. It culminated in Holyrood Park, where the word “braw” was spelled out to mark the start of the Year of Young People.

The word was chosen as the one that best describes why young people are proud to live in Scotland.
