BT Murrayfield shown as you've never seen it before in stunning drone footage, ahead of Scotland vs Tonga match

The jaw-dropping three-minute video allows fans to sweep through unseen areas of the famous stadium – in a gesture to welcome supporters back before the Scotland vs Tonga match next weekend.

The video, which was filmed in a single-shot by a drone, is set against a soundtrack of legendary rugby voices – including the legendary commentator Bill McClaren – and takes fans on a sensational journey throughout the historic stadium.

The footage sweeps through the team changing rooms, through the tunnel, to the top of the stands – where a lone piper plays, overlooking the pitch. The drone then flies even higher, showing viewers all corners of the 67,144 seater theatre, before flying through the posts at the end of the video.
