The 2004 New Year Celebrations in Edinburgh began with a torchlight
procession from the Edinburgh High Street, down the Mound, along Princes
Street and Regent Road then up to the top of Calton Hill.
The procession was led by a Viking ship that was put on the Calton Hill
bonfire and set alight with the torches.
The evening ended with a firework display on Calton Hill. The spectators here are
standing with their backs to the fire, lit by the light of the fire.
