Heroes welcome for Chris Hoy and other Scottish Olympic medalists

Thousands of Scots turned up to the Royal Mile in Edinburgh to give Chris Hoy and his fellow Scottish Olympic meddalists a heroes welcome back to Scotland on their return from the Beijing Olympics. Chris Hoy, sporting all three of his Olympic golds, was joined by fellow cyclist Ross Edgar, swimmer Katherine Grainger and canoeist David Florence as the bus made its way from the Castle down the Royal Mile to Holyrood Castle

Scottish sporting fans covered the pavements along the entire route of the Royal Mile, waving Saltire flags and cheering the Scottish Olympians, who were fresh from a welcome home reception at Edinburgh Castle, where they were greeted by Scottish Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Louise Martin CBE, chair of sportscotland.

Our popular Edinburgh streaming video webcams on the Edinburgh Royal Mile filmed part of the victory parade where the Scottish Olympic sport stars were atop an open-topped bus to travel along the Royal Mile in Edinburgh Capital. Unfortunately our video footage of the Edinburgh Victory parade was slightly interupted by a very excited newspaper photographer who slightly `put his foot into it` during the live webcam filming
