Tens of thousands of revellers have welcomed in 2014 at one of the world's best-known street parties.
An estimated 80,000 people from across the globe descended on the centre of Edinburgh to take part in the huge outdoor celebrations in the city known as the home of Hogmanay.
They counted down the last moments of 2013 before a spectacular fireworks display filled the skies above Edinburgh Castle and Calton Hill when the clock struck midnight.
Pet Shop Boys were the headline draw at a concert in Princes Street Gardens, with the synthpop duo having chosen the Scottish capital as the final location for their world tour. They were joined by guests The 1975 and Edinburgh's own Nina Nesbitt.
Party-goers at the 21st annual street party were entertained by music on three stages, with Mercury Prize nominees Django Django and Chvrches and The Rezillos taking to the Waverley stage.
The Scottish stage welcomed King Creosote and Fiddlers' Bid, while the Rewinder, a live DJ and VJ (video jockey) show from the top of The Mound, was shown on eight screens throughout the street party.
Other music tastes were catered for, with outdoor dance event The Keilidh playing the best in traditional Scottish music.
Build-up to the big fireworks display to welcome in the new year came in the shape of countdown fireworks at 8.14pm, or 20.14 on the 24 hour clock, and 9pm and 10pm.
A full "Homecoming Hogmanay" fireworks display at 11pm signalled one hour to go until the climax of the evening.
The midnight display, choreographed to music from Scottish acts who have taken part in Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations over the last 21 years, involved over 2,300 cues and 16,000 shots.
After watching the fireworks, revellers joined in a traditional rendition of Auld Lang Syne.
