Torchlit Procession, Edinburgh
Every year between Christmas and New Year there are events like this that hint at the pagan nature of our modern festivals. Here the torchbearers are assembled outside the imposing facade of the Royal High School before heading up to burn a Viking longboat on Calton Hill.
