A fire has broken out on Arthur's Seat on bonfire night.
Firefighters were called to the blaze on the iconic Edinburgh landmark at around 10.30pm on Saturday.
The flames could be seen around the city as they spread across the grass near the top of the hill.
A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service said crews had difficultly reaching the blaze because of the steep terrain.
Park rangers also helped tackle fire and police officers also attended. It is understood most of the fire was put out just after midnight. Fire crews remained on the scene to make sure no more gorse was alight.
As crews battled the flames, fireworks could be seen launching from the hill and other parts of Holyrood Park. Some were being set off horizontally along the ground. It is not clear what started the blaze.
The roads in Holyrood Park are closed every year on November 5 to discourage residents from using it for private fireworks displays and bonfires.
No injuries were reported at the fire.
