There was a 'Happy New Year' thread in the forum in 2007, but no forum-based collection of photos taken on New Year's Day. However, 134 contributors took and submitted photos of their outings on the day.
I've arranged my selection from the images in more or less (map) north to south order, and added a brief description where there was none.

NO8785 : New Years Day, Stonehaven by Carol Walker
Here is the evidence of the previous nights celebrations.The'fireball'is a cage of wire netting about two feet in circumference, packed with all sorts of flammable material and soaked in paraffin. It is attached to a five foot length of wire and can weigh up to twenty pounds. Swinging it around your head is no mean feat. The display parades through the streets and then the 'fireballs' are tossed into the sea.These unusual celebrations seem to be linked to an old 19th century fishermans festival, and maybe even pagan festivals before that.
