Beforehand, organisers had promised “an extra touch of magic, wizardry and sorcery” and crowds certainly weren’t disappointed as dazzling colours illuminated the night sky and fire jugglers performed.

A variety of food stalls also went down a treat, while a huge bonfire at the centre of proceedings kept everyone warm.

With a string of other fireworks displays set to take place across Edinburgh and the wider Lothians over the next week, the standard was definitely set at Hopetoun House.
