If you're in Edinburgh on or around November 5th, you're in the right place - there are few better places to watch the skies light up with a million firework explosions than in the Scottish capital.

Hopetoun House in South Queensferry is an annual favourite, and hosts its night earlier than most on October 29th. This year there's also two SLA Fireworks Displays - one in the north of Edinburgh on November 4th and one in the south on the 6th.

Or for just generally viewing the myriad of fireworks across the city, we recommend heading up to Arthur's Seat or Calton Hill to take in the vista of colourful explosions of light right across this most beautiful of cities.

Head above to find out what else is going on in Edinburgh this Bonfire Night. 

More and more it’s not just about getting out to see a firework or bonfire displays in Edinburgh, there are loads of events in Edinburgh for Guy Fawkes Night, with Edinburgh clubs, pubs and restaurants all putting on a themed Bonfire Night.
