Hogmanay gets Scotland's Year of Young People underway

Edinburgh’s Hogmanay got Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 off to a blazing start at the torchlight procession by revealing the #ScotWord, as voted for by young Scots summing up how they feel about living in Scotland. 

The winning word was Braw (meaning "really good" for those of you not from Scotland) which was a perfectly positive way to start the year!
