The Grange Club is a cricket and sports club in the Stockbridge district of Edinburgh, Scotland. The cricket ground, commonly known as The Grange, is the regular home of the Scotland national cricket team, and is situated adjacent to the Edinburgh Academy sports ground, which is in Raeburn Place.


The Grange has hosted numerous high profile international matches over the years featuring teams such as Australia, Pakistan and England. Some of the world's finest cricketers have played at The Grange, from W. G. Grace in 1895 and Donald Bradman in 1948 to Brian Lara in 1995, Shane Warne and Andrew Flintoff. The ground has hosted Scotland's home matches in ECB domestic cricket competitions.

The Grange hosted Scotland's first official One Day International (ODI) outside of Cricket World Cup on 27 June 2006. A capacity crowd saw Scotland lose by five wickets to Pakistan.
