Hi Guys and Girls,

Just a quick shout out to anyone who isn't from Edinburgh, but is thinking of doing something different this year for New Year.....

Despite some setbacks in recent years due to the unpredictable weather.... the New Year celebrations in Edinburgh are still some of the best around, with the city investing millions to try and encourage people to come and visit...

So why not come and visit?

Check out :

The official site gives you everything you need to know about the official events in Edinburgh, but unofficial is also a good way to go.

With the credit crunch, more people will be likely to have house parties, which means all the pubs in the town centre will just be busy instead of being utterly rammed as in previous years.

I'm starting off in George IV Bridge in a pub with my mates and planning on staying there for most of the night, but the great thing about being in a central location in Edinburgh is that you can do anything... I'll only be a quick stagger from the Grassmarket if we decide to go for a pub crawl... other good options that were suggested but rejected include the incredibly popular club night "Vegas" which is hosted in Ocean Terminal in Leith.

Whatever you're into, Edinburgh has it all.

If you have more specific questions about Hogmanay in Edinburgh, stick them in the comments section and I'll do my best to answer them.
