From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
Scotland vs Ireland
24 February, 2013
Murrayfield, Edinburgh, Scotland
Irish fans will flood the streets of Edinburgh when their team meets their Scottish rivals after a week's break in the 2013 RBS Six Nations.
Murrayfield is the largest rugby stadium in Scotland, with a seating capacity of just over 67,000. It is the home of the Scottish Rugby Union. It has a history dating back to 1925, only interrupted during the Second World War when the ground was requisitioned as a supply depot. It is situated in the west of Edinburgh, just off Corstorphine Road.
When the rugby excitement is over, you can explore Edinburgh Castle, or try a drive to Hopetoun House for some stately Georgian majesty. Admire the impressive collections of contemporary art at the Modern Art Galleries, set in extensive parkland that also serves as a sculpture park.
