Edinburgh Taxi Trade Children's Outing - 17 pictures from the big day out

Dozens of colourful taxis lined the streets of Edinburgh today for the Taxi Trade Children's Outing.

The taxis - covered in decorations from balloons to giant robots - congregated at Edinburgh Zoo before heading through the streets of Edinburgh in convoy and along the coast road in East Lothian, culminating at Dirleton beach for families to enjoy a seaside day out. Here is a gallery of some of the best pictures from the outing...
