Description

Stirling Castle is, most probably, the best castle in Scotland. Thus it holds that it's a truly wonderful place to hold a New Year's Eve celebration. Join the masses down by the castle's esplanade to listen to bells toll and see the fireworks fire. There'll be dancing, hugging and singing aplenty. 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.
