Tour In Focus: Edinburgh

Tour In Focus: Edinburgh

For the past decade Edinburgh has sat as Sky High Sports' favourite domestic rugby destination and the City remains a firm favourite amongst rugby tourists of all ages.

 

The Scottish Capital is a rugby destination offers rugby teams of all ages highlight after highlight and where the Sky High Sports experience is second to none. Edinburgh has a range of outstanding host clubs full of rich heritage and superb rugby experiences on and off the field.

 

It's no wonder we have sent more rugby tourists to Edinburgh than any other destination. 

 

If you're looking for a training venue, you can choose between Edinburgh Academicals RFC - one of the cities oldest clubs & the venue of the first Scotland Vs England match, or, Oriam, the state of the art high-performance centre opened in 2017. Oriam is the home of the Scottish Rugby Team & boasts Europe’s first full-sized indoor Rugby pitch.

 

For Guest Coaches, our past coaches read like a ‘who’s-who’ of Scottish Rugby. Internationals Tim Visser, David Denton, Mat Scott, Hamish Watson, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne & Ben Toolis have all coached and met with our touring teams in recent years.

 

Once you’ve practiced and played, you’ll be ready to take your seat and watch. Tickets to Edinburgh Rugby matches at Myreside or Scotand Internationals at Murrayfield are readily available. A visit to Murrayfield in any guise is a recommended inclusion - it is a pure rugby ground like no other.

 

Away from the Rugby, the city is spectacular. A city-centre like no other combines the stunning old-town with a lively and cosmopolitan new town. All accessible from your accommodation, the city is safe, secure & offers much to fill in free time. We highly recommend the highland games themed day, the after-dark ghost tour of the old town.

 

Time and time again Edinburgh has proven it's worth. Perhaps you're looking at Edinburgh as a rugby destination for next season? It's a City where we can really get to work so get in touch, we'd be delighted to share our experiences and ideas and help point you in the right direction.
