Rugby internationals at Murrayfield - always a big occasion, but especially for world cup games.
People descend on the city from all over the country to meet up with old friends and support the national team.
I haven't been for years, but before the family commitments came along, I was a "hard core" regular!

Update!
Went to see Scotland v France yesterday (8-3-14) as guest of an old friend. As old as me, anyway.
Enjoyable & exciting, but we lost in the final minute.

Equipment: tickets (often a sell out);
beer tokens;
homing device to get you back to railway station at right time;
warm clothing

Address: Murrayfield Rugby Stadium
Directions: West side of city, 15 minutes walk from Haymarket station
Theme: Sports Watching

    It has been quite a few years since Scotland had a good team. My cousin and her husband would have been in the crowd for that match also!!
