Everything gets a little hot in Edinburgh when the coming of summer is celebrated with the Beltane Fire Festival.

The event  on Calton Hill celebrates the ending of winter and is a revival of the ancient Celtic and Pagan festival of Beltane, the Gaelic name for the month of May.

The festival was first organized in the mid 1980's and to this day performers from the Beltane Fire Society will put on quite a show.
