Day 1: 29th December
Check into your city centre hostel and get ready to explore Edinburgh, the most beautiful city in the UK! Join us tonight to get the Hogmanay festivities started and then sample a few malt whiskies in a couple of Edinburgh's famous pubs.
Day 2: 30th December
Your stunning day trip will give you a real taste of the Highlands. We pass the battlefields of Stirling where legends such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce made their name. We explore stunning lochs, snow-capped mountains and castles. There may even be time for a snowball fight (depending on the weather!). Once back in Edinburgh, take part in the Torchlight Procession (including torch) followed by our legendary HAGGiS Ceilidh for some traditional Scottish dancing.
Day 3: New Year's Eve 2011 - Hogmanay!
Explore our beautiful city on a walking tour with one of our wild and sexy local Guides! Now that you've worked up a thirst it's off to see in the Aussie and Kiwi New Year with loads of fellow Antipodeans to celebrate with. Party on or take some free time to explore the capital, head down to Princes' Street Gardens to the Winter Wonderland or get dolled up for the biggest New Year's party ever. Don't forget, when the clock strikes 12 it's your chance to kiss everyone you can get your hands on and wish them Happy Hogmanay!
Day 4: New Year's Day 2012
No doubt there will be a few sore heads this morning but what better cure for a hangover than a Loony Dook! For the last 25 years South Queensferry has played host to this insane event and is now sponsored by HAGGiS Adventures. Hundreds of, well... loonies, take to the freezing waters of the Firth of Forth, many of them in fancy dress and all of them up for a good time. This event helps to raise thousands of pounds for charity and with the impressive Forth Bridge in the background, this obscure tradition is an event not to be missed. (Don't forget your swimmers and fancy dress. Swim caps included!).
After a 'refreshing' swim in the sea we head back to the capital where you can warm up with some glühwein at the winter markets. Tonight we have one final fling for those who are still up for it!
Day 5: 2nd January
Check out of your hostel in the morning. Before you leave be sure to breathe in the last of that fine Scottish air and appreciate the magnificent views of the city before heading off on your travels.
