Book Early for Hogmanay

Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations are to be expanded onto the Royal Mile over the bells for the first time in 16 years.

Two new stages are to be set up around St Giles' Cathedral and part of the High Street will be made ticket only.

The Royal Mile will be part of the street party arena for the first time since the capital's Millennium celebrations.

The capital will welcome 150,000 visitors during three days of events.

Scots rockers Biffy Clyro will headline the flagship concert in Princes Street gardens in their only UK appearance.

The party launches with the Torchlight procession on 30th December, when 10,000 people are expected to walk through the city.

It is reckoned the three day event is worth more than 40 million to the capital.
