Hamish Watson

A game changer for Rugby Touring In Edinburgh 

Edinburgh Rugby Tours

Edinburgh has always featured heavily on our must-tour list, and now, with the help of Scotland International back-row Hamish Watson, the rugby experience we are able to provide to touring teams in this great City is incomparable. 


Of all our rugby destinations, Edinburgh is the city in which we have worked most often. As unique as Venice and as opulent as Paris, the city is one of Europe’s most magnificent, but this is no secret.


Hamish joined The Rugby Tour Specialists in 2018 after delivering a pro-coaching clinic for USA touring team Cal Poly University who were touring Scotland at the time. Following one of the most hands-on & technical coaching sessions we've had the pleasure to witness, it was obvious that we needed to make this experience available for other ambitious rugby tourists.


The flanker is now our dedicated pro-coaching specialist in Edinburgh. Giving us unprecedented access to the professional game and the ability to provide exceptional opportunities for touring teams to learn from Scotlands most exciting Internationals. Whether it be a Breakfast Q&A, a high-quality coaching clinic or leading your pre-match prep, Hamish will be on hand to deliver.


For your training venue, you can choose between Edinburgh Academicals 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. 


Once you’ve practiced and played, you’ll be ready to take your seat and watch. Tickets to Edinburgh Rugby or Scottish International matches 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.


Off the field, treat your team to your own Highland Games Championship, visit the forgotten old-town on an after-dark tour & fill the bellies at Edinburgh’s coolest eateries. All of our rugby tours to Edinburgh are centred on a brilliant base in the heart of the city, a cabre toss from the world-famous Royal Mile. 


Edinburgh is exceptional, so haste ye back!
