For over 1000 people, the first day of 2016 was spent diving head first into the freezing river Forth as part of the Loony Dook, celebrating its 30th year.

For three decades people have paraded through the streets of South Queensferry before running into the river with the iconic Forth Rail Bridge as the backdrop to this crazy event.

This year 1200 took the plunge in a variety of whacky and funny costumes making the event another successful day, bringing an end to the Hogmanay celebrations in Edinburgh.

The Loony Dook was sponsored by Stoats porridge who were on hand to dish out some merchandise to the massive crowd of support and the brave ones in the water.
