A crowd assembled outside a plush Edinburgh hotel on Saturday night as police were seen leading a convoy of SUVs through the back gates after Taylor Swift performed her second of three Murrayfield shows.

With speculation spreading in recent weeks over where the global icon would be staying during her three-night stint performing in the capital, it was widely suggested that the swanky Caledonian Hotel had the pleasure of hosting the singer.

At the end of last week, our sister title the Daily Record reported how staff were seen wrapping tarpaulin around the large black gates at the entrance to the hotel's car park, as well as a row of plush motors seen parked outside.

It was suggested that Taylor was staying at the city centre hotel and the news didn't take long to spread to Swifties as dozens gathered on Rutland Street after darkness fell on Saturday night, June 8.

A video uploaded to TikTok shows the moment a police motorbike leads several black BMW SUVs from Rutland Square to the back of the hotel, where several other uniformed officers are also seen standing guard.

Traffic was temporarily blocked from entering the cobbled street as fans were quick to speculate that Taylor herself was a passenger in one of the vehicles.

On Saturday, we also reported how a similar convoy was seen leaving Murrayfield following the conclusion of Friday's sell-out show - also with the aid of a police escort.

A huge crowd of fans also gathered at the side of the road to try and catch a glimpse of their idol as she left the stadium, despite the vehicles' windows being tinted.

Taylor will return one last time to Murrayfield during her Eras tour on Sunday with the final show in the capital. Both Friday and Saturday night are said to have attracted more than 145,000 fans in total with another 70,000 to descend on the stadium on Sunday.
