Up close with the Scotland squad in the north

Scotland’s players had a three day training camp in Perthshire and the Highlands this week in preparation for their three-match tournament in South Africa in June.


 
The players and coaches visited Blairgowrie in Perthshire and Grantown-on-Spey (see video above) and Aviemore in Invernessshire and received a warm welcome from the local communities.
 
Scotland captain Kelly Brown reckoned it was the ideal preparation for the tour which sees Scotland compete in a quadrangular tournament also involving Samoa, South Africa and Italy.
 
The Scotland party leaves Edinburgh tomorrow with the first game against Samoa in Durban next Saturday (8 June).
