After a penalty for the away side in-form Stuart Hogg gave the Scots the lead in front of a noisy Edinburgh crowd after showing great pace down the flank and his try was converted.
Rhys Webb brought the Welsh back into it though, showing his own turn of pace to score a try and send the Welsh into half-time with a 10-16 lead over their hosts.
When Jonathan Davies sold Hogg a dummy in the second half to put the ball right under the posts – with Leigh Halfpenny converting – it looked like a routine win for the visitors.
Yet Jim Hamilton bundled the ball over the line in the final minute and after a scuffle between the two sides the conversion left just three points between the teams with four seconds left on the clock – but the delay was judged to have taken it into full-time by referee Glenn Jackson, who controversially blew his whistle.
