2. The home of Scottish rugby
Murrayfield Stadium has changed a lot over the years, since it opened as a mostly terraced 70,000 ground in 1925, with the first match taking place a memorable one as Scotland triumphed over rivals England to win their first ever Five Nations Championship Grand Slam. This photo was taken in 2022 of the stadium in its current form. Photo: Mark Runnacles
