Scotland’s Euro 2024 five-star camp is within the shadow of a crudely named landmark

Scotland have set up camp at Mount Wank in the German mountains, as they gear up for Euro 2024.

They’re kicking off the tournament with a bang, facing the hosts in Friday’s (June 14) opening match and hoping to cause a major upset against one of the competition favourites.

The squad, led by Steve Clarke and featuring Premier League stars like Andrew Robertson, Scott McTominay and John McGinn, are stationed in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This resort town, home to just 30,000 people, sits at the foot of Mount Wank.

“Thank you for the warm welcome,” skipper Robertson expressed after landing on Sunday. “It has been a long day’s travelling and I think we are all ready for bed but the welcome has been amazing.

“I am sure the locals will be very friendly towards us when we are here and hopefully we can win football matches and keep us here as long as possible.
