Hogmanay organisers have urged people to “get off the sofa” on New Year’s Day and join in with the Old Town games.

A series of games are taking place across the Old Town in the New Year Games, including two teams – “uppies” and “doonies” – taking part in giant board games.

Pete Irvine, the creative director of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, said: “I live in the north of Edinburgh so count myself as an uppie and am thoroughly looking forward to cheering on my team. The games are a great way to spend the afternoon.”
