Description

Beltane is the Celtic May Day festival. It marks the midway point between the spring equinox and the summer solstice The celebrations now held on Edinburgh’s Calton Hill are modern re-interpretations of what might have taken place in ancient times. They may be inspired by the folklore associated with the old Beltane; but this event is much more of a cultural one which blends the myths and drama from a range of world cultures.
