Every year on the second Tuesday in June, Edinburgh’s taxi drivers take time off to treat some very special children to a day at the seaside for the Edinburgh Taxi Trade Children's Outing.
All the taxis usually leave from Murrayfield at around 10am, but this year they are congregating at Edinburgh Zoo Car Park.
They will then make their way down the Royal Mile, along London Road, through Portobello and arriving in Musselburgh at around 11.30am.
From there the taxis head out along the coast road, through Cockenzie, Port Seton and Gullane, and finally ending up at Dirleton where they enjoy the rest of their day.
