Edinburgh

A must for the Rugby Tourist. We've sent more Rugby Teams to Edinburgh than any other destination. No other city lends itself to tours of all ages like the Scottish Capital. If you've not been, here is your chance in 2020!

Rugby Tours To Edinburgh

Exceptional Edinburgh sits atop our list as the #1 Rugby Tour destination in the UK. The city is as exciting as it is beautiful, and offers rugby teams of all ages highlight after highlight

The Rugby Experience available with Sky High Sports in this world-class city is second to none.

For a training venue, you can choose between Edinburgh Academi- cals 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.
