Edinburgh Lumen is transforming St Andrew Square, Assembly Rooms Lane and The Mound Precinct with visual and sound displays.

The event has been created to celebrate the city in a "more peaceful and reflective mood" than the bustling summer festivals.

Lumen runs from the evening of 8 February to 11 March 2018.
