Rugby Six Nations Murrayfield Scotland

Second only to football in terms of popularity in the region, rugby thrives in Edinburgh and across the Lothians particularly when the city plays host to Scotland’s international matches.

Some of the world’s best teams battle it out at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh as part of the Six Nations tournament that takes place every year. With the likes of Ireland, Wales, Italy, France and England descending on Scotland the rivalry is intense and the atmosphere always electric.

Of course it’s not just for the internationals that Edinburgh is a bustling rugby location: it is also home to Edinburgh Rugby, one of only two professional rugby union sides in Scotland, doing battle with Irish, Italian and Welsh teams in the RaboDirect PRO12 League and competing in the Heineken Cup.

If you’re a true fan of rugby union then Murrayfield and the Six Nations have to be on your calendar: so why not enjoy them in style from the magnificent new development at 123 Royal Mile?
