    The Olympic Torch wound it’s way through thousands of miles of Scottish highways and byways before finally arriving at the Lothian and Borders area. It was enthusiastically welcomed as a  once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Olympic Torch relay.

    Huge crowds turned out in lovely weather to cheer on the torchbearers from near and far. This selection of photos is compiled from our own , those from partner agencies and those sent in by the public, for which we thank you.

    Thanks to everyone in the LBP area for your patience, cooperation and support with this historic event.

      I had a wonderful time both days the torch was in Edinburgh. I enjoyed chatting with some of the police on duty, and loved the motorbike police waving and getting the public cheering. Thanks to everyone for helping to make both days enjoyable.
