3. Tynecastle Park (Heart of Midlothian)
The home of Hearts isn’t an extremely big stadium but the atmosphere there is better than most clubs in Scotland. Tynecastle has been the home ground of Hearts since 1886. Hearts fans create an incredible voice throughout the match that intimidates the visiting team. The stadium is also mesmerizing in looks. Tynecastle Park absolutely roars in big matches like the Edinburgh derby and it feels like that the stadium was made for matches like this. Steven Gerrard has also admired Tynecastle Park by saying, ‘What a stadium’ and also expressed that the Tynecastle atmosphere made him want to come out of retirement and take part in Rangers’ trip to face Hearts back in 2018.
2. Ibrox Stadium (Rangers F.C.)
Ibrox Stadium is an all-seated stadium with a capacity of 50,817, which makes it the third-largest stadium in Scotland.

To my way of appreciating football, it’s truly really beautiful. That’s how to support your team!”. The atmosphere at Ibrox especially during the Old Firm derbies is a spectacle to experience.
