The Fires of Midsummer

Midsummer, the point that marks the turning of the year as the days begin to shorten is the source of many different kinds of ritual and celebration all over Scotland. The festival itself is primarily a Celtic fire festival traditionally celebrated on either the 23rd or 24th of June, although the longest day actually falls on the 21st. Its importance to our ancestors is evident in the large number of stone circles and other ancient monuments are aligned to the sunrise on this day.
