Description

Aberdeen welcomes in the New Year with a massive fireworks display above His Majesty's Theatre. See the city's skyline come to life and gargle whiskey as you stare at the bright lights above you. The best viewing spots are from Belmont Street, Blackfriars Street, Union Terrace and Union Bridge. New Year's Eve in Scotland is known as Hogmanay – a beautiful, drunken, fiery collision of the traditional and the modern. New Year's Eve in Scotland is known as Hogmanay – a beautiful, drunken, fiery collision of the traditional and the modern. Hogmanay became a big deal in Scotland when Christmas was banned for 400 years and so the Scots perfected the perfect party to mark the end of the year. There's loads of local customs to get involved in including welcoming dark haired gentlemen across one's doorstep, the mass singing of For Auld Lang Syne and general whiskey-induced friendliness.
