BBC Radio Scotland: Old Year's Night

The ceremonial "Burning of the Clavie" in the small Morayshire village of Burghead, takes place annually on January 11, which was the date of the original Hogmanay before the calendar changed in 1660.

Those who are handed smouldering pieces of the clavie believe that it will bring good fortune in the forthcoming year.
