Scotland have had an association with Murrayfield for over 85 years and played their first international in 1925, beating England 14-11 to win their first Five Nations Grand Slam.
The ground was purchased from the old Edinburgh Polo Ground at Murray's Field in 1922 for £3,800 with previous internationals being held at Inverleith.
In 1994 Murrayfield completed a multi-million pound renovation, installing floodlights for the first time, with the unveiling done by the Princess Royal.
It is the largest stadium in Scotland with a capacity of 67,130 and also incorporates the countries largest, permanent television screen.
When not hosting international fixtures Murrayfield is the home of Edinburgh Rugby, holding Celtic League and Heineken Cup clashes.
Edinburgh and its lovely central Old Town area, which sits below the majestic Castle, offers plenty in the way of entertainment.
It has all the benefits of a major city, but with an almost villagey atmosphere in places besides stunning architecture and scenery.
Shops, restaurants, theatres, galleries, pubs, and sightseeing are all on offer in Edinburgh - and then some.
The city centre is also a short bus, taxi or shuttle journey from the airport, and Murrayfield itself is to the west of the city centre, just over two miles from Edinburgh Castle.
And central accommodation can be inexpensive compared with some of the other RBS 6 Nations venues.
John Jeffrey and Dean Richards allegedly once spent an evening following a bruising Championship encounter between Scotland and England at Murrayfield by taking the Calcutta Cup for a trip down Princes Street and all but turning it into the Calcutta Plate after a few high jinks and a couple of attempted drop goals.
