Murrayfield Stadium provides a suitable backdrop to their activity.

"There are tedious moments in cricket and bull-fighting and even in baseball. All these games lack the sustained unity of palpitation, which, especially when Scotland is playing England, makes every Scottish heart in the huge crowd beat as one during eighty minutes of concentrated struggle. In this emotional tumult there is something of the spirit of Bannockburn. It is the annual reassertion of Scottish independence and of a national pride which, although the Scot conceals it successfully in foreign countries, is more boastful and more aggressive than even the casual arrogance of the English. And the crowd is animated by one fierce, exultant desire: to see Scotland triumph over the old enemy." -- Sir Robert Bruce Lockhart, My Scottish Youth, 1937
