Slushy snow fails to dampen celebrations

Heavy, slushy snow was falling just as torches were lit for the procession from the harbour to the Links. Despite the precipitation, drummers performed and Sandy Thomson gave a much abbreviated speech to the crowd of undaunted torchbearers.

Unsurprisingly, the Hogmanay celebrations in Inverness were cancelled this evening — but Croms don't give up so easily!

Conditions improved by midnight, and the countdown to the bells at the Harbour was enjoyed by a crowd of 200 revellers.
