The hotel has all the modern essentials: comfy double or single beds, air-conditioning and heating, TVs, en-suite bathrooms and Wi-Fi. It is located right in the City Centre, just off the Royal Mile and next to the Dynamic Earth museum, meaning that finding restaurants and evening entertainment is effortless.




Saturday & Sunday: Games against two local clubs/schools & city centre trip

After a full-english breakfast you will be transferred to a local rugby club for a match against a local side. Lunch will be provided for both teams after the games, after which you will watch the local First XV play at the club. In the late afternoon you will be transferred back to the city centre, where you will visit the Dynamic Earth Museum and wander around the centre before having a tour buffet dinner in town.

On Sunday morning after another hearty breakfast, you will walk up Arthur’s Seat, which offers fantastic views of the city. Afterwards you will depart for a local rugby club, where you will play your final game against a local side. Lunch will be provided for the players and the bar will be open for adults’ food and drinks. After lunch you will be transferred back home, where we will bid you farewell. Alternative activities may be organised if tourists only wish to play on Saturday, such as a visit to The Edinburgh Dungeons or a visit to watch Edinburgh’s premiership rugby side.
