Edinburgh castle is to be transformed into a Castle of Light for the first time in its some 900 years history, Scotland's cultural agency announced Tuesday.
The iconic landmark in Scotland's capital city is to be illuminated with tales from Scotland's past in a mesmerising 90-minute journey of light, sound and wonder, entitled Castle of Light.
"It will treat guests to an evening of dazzling animations, never seen before at the castle in its 900-year history," said Historic Environment Scotland (HES).
Running over six weeks throughout the festive season, from Nov. 14 to Dec. 22, the castle will be transformed using state-of-the-art projections and enchanting storytelling.
The event will be the biggest light experience ever seen in Edinburgh, bringing together a consortium of digital and visual talent in Scotland.
HES's Gillian Macdonald said: "Castle of Light invites visitors to watch the history of this iconic landmark come to life as it illuminates the very walls that saw it unfold. People will have the chance to follow in the footsteps of Scotland's heroes as they're welcomed by stunning visuals and impressive lighting installations within the Castle's walls."
