This is the time of year some people in Edinburgh travel to other parts of Scotland to get away from the havoc! When the Festival is on it’s brutal and festivals are every month here in Scotland. Sure we are thankful people from all over the World come and make us a rich city, but years of this does grind you down. Give you another Scottish example, today it’s the 17th July 2015 and we just had a Rain storm, and it’s still raining. THAT!! We are just used to this you see. When a family member lived on the mainland in the Highlands up North we used to travel to that person for the New Year party or as we call it ‘ This year will see over 100,000 people descend on Edinburgh and around £1 Million over Scotland all in, also in all and any types of weather! We are lucky where I live in Edinburgh, I will show you where I live. Links below for where you can purchase a ticket for this shindig

Tickets for Edinburgh’s world famous Hogmanay street party have gone on sale with organisers saying there is already “huge interest” in the event.
Tens of thousands of revellers from all over the globe travel to Scotland’s capital to bring in the new year, with last year’s bash attracting 75,000 people. The New Year’s Eve street party is the centre piece of three days of events in Edinburgh, which boosted the city’s economy by £41.8m last year. Organisers promise an enhanced experience to welcome in 2016, including additional entertainment and increased arena space for crowds.
Full details of the bands and other live artists that will be performing will not be revealed until October.
Pete Irvine, of organisers Unique Events and Festival Director of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, said: “We are already experiencing a huge interest from around the world for tickets to the street party. “Following last year’s sell-out event we have added extra screens and an additional stage with more space for revellers to enjoy the best party on the planet.”
Councillor Richard Lewis, the festivals and events champion at the City of Edinburgh Council, said the capital “has a global reputation as being the place in which to celebrate Hogmanay”. He added: “With additional stages and screens planned for this year’s Street Party, it promises to be bigger and better than ever.”
Paul Bush, director of events at VisitScotland, said: “Edinburgh’s Hogmanay is an ambassador for Scotland, showcasing Edinburgh as the home of Hogmanay all round the world. “With visitors from over 70 countries, Hogmanay promotes Scotland as an all-year-round visitor destination and the perfect stage for events.”
