The Bloggers will arrive in Edinburgh on 29 December to experience all the events in Edinburgh’s Hogmanay from 30 December to 1 January. The group will enjoy the Edinburgh’s Hogmanay experience before enjoying the very best hospitality and tourism experiences on a three day tour of Scotland in winter, hosted by Haggis Adventures. All overseas travel has been found on leading travel search site Skyscanner.

hogmanay-torchPete Irvine, Artistic Director of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, said “We are delighted to be able to showcase Edinburgh and Edinburgh’s Hogmanay to this group, and to their worldwide audience. We know that they will have a fantastic time here in the home of Hogmanay, and return home with wonderful memories of Scotland as a must-visit winter destination. “We hope that everybody who is joining us in Edinburgh for Hogmanay will take part in Blogmanay by using our hashtag (#blogmanay) and by posting their favourite photographs of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay to Instagram to win a fantastic trip to Edinburgh’s Hogmanay 2014.” 

NOTE: All photographs of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay posted to Instagram using #blogmanay will be entered into a competition.
