Edinburgh’s annual Taxi Outing is back after a two-year absence.

The spectacular, fun filled procession where taxi drivers from the capital take time out of their schedules to decorate their vehicles and drive youngsters with special needs through the streets of Edinburgh, got underway this morning at 10am.

The 74th Edinburgh Taxi Outing, which was cancelled for two years because of Covid, has been a highlight of the Edinburgh calendar since 1947 and this year has over 50 taxis and over 100 children taking part.
