Torchlight Procession

Tonight is the Torchlight Procession to mark the beginning of the New Year festivities. Fire plays an important part in New Year and winter festivals in this part of the world as we try and light up the darkness and cast out bad spirits. Some well known fire themed New Year festivities can be found in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire with the fireballs and in Comrie, Perthshire with the flambeaux.
