A view of the city of Edinburgh

Och Aye!

Watched over by its towering castle, Edinburgh is a heady mix of character, tradition and mayhem. The city is split into the New Town and Old Town, with the latter chock full with authentic Scottish alehouses and famous for its notorious Grassmarket drinking district. There’s no question that the Grassmarket area is the Old Town’s nightlife headquarters, with stunning restaurants and old-school pubs lining the cobbled streets. Under the shadow of Edinburgh Castle is The Last Drop, a cracking little boozer, jam-packed with Scottish tradition. This pub, hugely popular with both locals and tourists alike, is a sterling spot for a few laughs and a wee dram of whisky.

New Town is the crazy younger brother of the Old Town, it’s brash, loud and the centre of the party – it’s a stag haven with cobblestones. From the uber-stylish Shanghai club to the exclusive Silk lounge to the electro Why Not venue - you’ll find everything you’ll ever need on your last night of freedom here.

The legendary clubs and old-fashioned watering holes are a full-on experience throughout the year, but Edinburgh is particularly buzzing in August. Edinburgh Fringe, the wold’s largest arts festival, sees the city come alive as thousands descend onto the city and turn the streets into one huge stage, with comedy, theatre, food and street art shows the order of the day. The Fringe has a legacy of hosting great comedians, including Lee Evans, Peter Kay and Dara Ó Briain, so you’re in the right place if you’re looking to hit up a couple of comedy shows on your stag do.

However, it’s not just the pubs and festivals that make this the ultimate stag weekend destination. The pubs are homely, the haggis is delicious and the whisky is sensational. You won’t find a better hangover cure than a breakfast of neeps and tatties followed by a whisky tasting tour (which we happen to offer, we’ll have you know). We can promise you one thing, lads; your Edinburgh stag weekend is sure to be unforgettable.

“Brilliant weekend with paintballing a great activity. For all stag's and best men, get ready for a world of pain!”


Edinburgh is a great city. The hostel was clean with a nice breakfast and bar, most of the staff were friendly and helpful but we got the impression on a few occasions they were not very tolerant of stag parties. The off road buggying was fantastic and would highly recommend it! Night life is very good with plenty to do for people of all different music tastes, but perhaps in smaller groups, we struggled to get in most places even when we divided the group up. In a nut shell I'd certainly go back here but perhaps with the wife and kids - not for a piss up!”


Cracking weekend in Edinburgh with a great bunch of lads. Paintballing organised by LNOF was great fun! The rest of time was spent in the bars, all of which were welcoming and great fun!”


We had a fantastic weekend, would not hesitate to use your services again, very easy system to use cannot recommend your company highly enough.

Incredible weekend. Bit tought to get 29 guys around. Rose street and George street seemed much stricter than cowgate and grassmarket. Also alot of the bars were too small to even fit us all in. Last night of freedom services were excellent. ”


“I was the stag and to be honest I couldn’t have picked a better location myself, great spot for all the pubs and clubs, not far walking distance to buses and trains. Hostel was nice and clean, cheap drink, 2 pool tables and food wasn't bad either. For yourself I never heard any complaints about you lot at all from anyone. Very helpful and easy to work with, will definitely be passing your name on. ”


“Good weekend with some memories that will never be let down.”


“We had a fantastic weekend with little bo peep and her(his) sheep!!”


“This has been, by far, the most organised weekend away I've been involved in! And completely stress free! All we had to think about is who's round was next! The accommodation was walking distance to food - clubs – train station- night life and so much more! Great hostel - we all had a great time! Highly recommend!”


“We were told to go to the wrong place for white water rafting, overall though the rafting was good. The whiskey tour was overpriced, receiving only one free shot of whiskey. The clay pigeon shooting was excellent. The apartments were great, but there was no frying pan or grill pan or shelves in the oven. Edinburgh is a beautiful city.”


“Not really ideal for a stag venue, dressing the stag up and giving them some stick is all part of it and not many places seem to like it...the go-karting was good but the white water rafting was more like a white water 6.5 mile paddle, not ideal woth a hang over!”


Edinburgh is a fantastic city and bars and clubs were great, we spent our time on george street etc, paintballing was fantastic and staff there were excellent, the lap dancing was excellent a little steep at £20 a dance but we didn’t attend the nightclubs on the program and went elsewhere.

Accommodation was first class and couldn’t have been better was very disappointed with the go carting staff, as we were told the venue was 15 - 20 minutes drive from where we were staying but when typed into Sat nav was 42 minutes. ”


Absolutely brilliant, easy to find venues and very well priced.”


Fantastic weekend in Edinburgh. I was worrying to begin with having to organise 12 very different lads and making sure everyone enjoyed the stag do, bar crawl and comedy club were a lot of fun, very memorable weekend thanks to Last Night of Freedom!”


“Accommodation was great and the organisation of the weekend was spot on. Shame the pubs didn't stay open longer at night though!!”


“It was a brilliant weekend, Edinburgh is a amazing city. The accommodation was excellent, right in the city centre. I highly recommend and would go again.”


“Great time had by all.”


We thoroughly enjoyed the whisky tasting and the comedy club was good, too, but the was atrocious.”


Good organisation that takes the stress out of being the Best man. Why re-invent the wheel when there are tried and tested pre-approved weekends! Great value for money.”


“Got hammered. Got shot in the backside.”


“Perfect weekend.”


Great weekend, accommodation was spot on and everything was organised as it should have been. Only downside was the early close time in Edinburgh!!”


“Strip clubs, alcohol and paintballing. Enough said!”


“Great weekend, the quad biking was fantastic and the lap dancing was predictably good!! ”


“The flat itself was nice. But the area it was in didn't seem safe at all.”


The activities went without a hitch and the overall service was great - thank you very much.”


“We had an excellent time in Edinburgh. I would recommend Last Night of Freedom to every Best Man!! The Rafting experience was fantastic and everyone had a great weekend!!”


The service was easy to use with good communication back and forth and the weekend itself was a lot of fun. Saturday's Mini Highland games were excellent - as was the clay pigeon shooting (if a little short). However, it was a long drive between the two activities.

Another area for improvement would be the accommodation. No issue with the quality of the apartments, it was just that we were spread over three rooms in two different buildings, ”


All the activities planned did happen very smoothly. All of the right names were on the correct lists etc so no problems there. However, our accommodation (which was pretty good) was supposed to be very central to the action areas of the city but turned out to be a good 10 minutes away.

Otherwise, yes, I would probably use Last Night of Freedom again and suffice to say that a tip-top time was had by all but our party members! ”


“Overall, Great fun was had by all. A slightly shaky start when we arrived at the apartments at 3pm to check in and were told it would be another hour and a half until our rooms were ready though. Beyond that, the apartments were comfortable and clean although just a little bit too far out of town to walk really (which we were made of aware of beforehand.)

The highlight for us all was the clay pigeon / highland games, Superb setting and excellent guys leading our group. Nightclub wise, we arrived at 11.30 (supposedly our entry cut off point) when it was almost empty. It did pack out and become a good night. ”


“Edinburgh was a great location; everything we booked through LNOF was perfect. Would recommend both the location and the company to friends.”


“Great city, Good accommodation, paintballing was good fun!!”


Whole weekend was amazing. Would recommend Edinburgh to anyone (just prepare yourselves for the long cobbled hills in the city center!!)

Ghost tour was good, could have spent more time in the vaults but it does exactly what it says on the tin!! Go karting was a really good laugh, a definate must, quite a way out but well worth it!! All round its a brilliant city and would love to go back. Thanks Last Night Of Freedom for arranging a brilliant memorable weekend. ”


Clay pigeon shooting was excellent - very nice people there and well organised”


“What a great weekend.
Everything was so simple with the printed vouchers from Last Night of Freedom.

Edinburgh was fantastice. A friendly atmosphere, good bars, clubs & pubs. Bouncers were allowing large groups in and negotiating with the head of the party to ensure a trouble free night.

The hotel was an ideal Stag venue. 24 Hour in house bar, pool tables, great food, nice welcome, clean and tidy, friendly staff.

We have got some great memories from Edinburgh!!!!”


Very well organised, Everything went according to plan, taxi, gokarting excellent. Taxi men gave clear direct information on what to and what not to do/info on places to go and not to.”


“Geat weekend well recomended”


“We had a fantastic time. The accommodation was excellent, everybody made comment on how good the accommodation was. We had an excellent time in Edinburgh and the VIP tickets for the clubs, supplied by THE LAST NIGHT OF FREEDOM were also awesome. We didn't make the paintballing, but that was our fault, as we had drunk we to much the night before and people just could not be motivated to take part.

All in all it was a fantastic weekend. Everyone really enjoyed. Edinburgh was a really friendly place. I would recommend it to any one.

Thank you again everyone at THE LAST NIGHT OF FREEDOM for making this such a stress free weekend. excellent service and I will recommend you to everyone I know who is planning weekends away like this.... Many Thanks Dan Llewellyn”


“Great night out, activities were a good laugh. No complaints!”


“Overall we all had a great weekend. The white water rafting was amazing, and great fun. We were a little dissappointed by the stip club. The nightclub on the Saturday was again very good.

Great Service by you all. Thanks. Paul ”


“Everything was very good. ”


“Edinburgh is a great city for a hen, the party bus was madness and we had a ball!”


The boogie bus was brilliant and the reps were fantastic.”


“The apartments were ok but not enough beds pulling the sofa down for a bed was a pain. the clay pigeon shooting was very good fun, over all it was a right laugh. ”


The city is excellent and the night life and atmosphere is second to none. I would definitley recommend Edinburgh for a stag do.”


Excellent weekend enjoyed by all! The clay pigeon shooting was a professional outfit and I think I'll have another go at that : )

The accommodation was fantastic, we thought the taxis were taking extra long routes though, but thats by the by. Thanks You for making my stag do hassle free, easy and memorable! ”


Weekend was brilliant, everyone loved it !! I would also like to add that this company was brilliant and will be reccomending you to everyone I know. Thanks for making it so easy and a memorable time for all of us !!!!!”


Friday was just a blur as we started drinking v.early in the afternoon/morning, but with out a doubt the highlight was a 2 girl private show for the stag at the strip Club, highly entertaining , i think i'll be keeping those pics away from the bride to be!!:) Top show girls...

After that i'm pretty sure we went to more bars in the city...Next thing i remember is waking up with a bottle of Bud being handed to me, best cure, Saturday night was pretty much the same again:)”


Booking through Last Night of Freedom really saved so much time, effort and (from previous experience!) hassle. Everything that was booked on our itinarary went smoothly and really gave somthing different to the weekend.

The staff at Last Nigt ofFreedom were also incredibly friendly and helpful and did everything they could to cater for our needs.

Overall the weekend was fantastic; the activities, the accommodation and the location, all of which was sorted by Last Night of Freedom for an exceptionally reasonable price. Thanks to everyone at Last Night of Freedom for sorting our weekend!”


Excellent service provided by Last Night of Freedom, the clay pigeon shooting was a really good activity which involved all ages of friends and family of the stag.

The restaurant was a little bit of a let down, and seemed in a bit of disarray, but we were a group of 17 in the height of the Edinburgh Festival.”


A very good weekend was had by all, the accomodation was clean and tidy, and the activities were cool. Thanks for a great stag do!”


Great weekend!!!! just the location was alittle out of town .... thought it would be nearer...apart from that great job and thanks a million.”


Zorbing was great


For what we wanted it was spot on. The hotel had it's own pub below and it was open 24hours. The activity was a bit far away but would recommend going Clay pigeon shooting it was fantastic....”


The party bus was crazy, all the stags loved it. Reps keep everyone moving for a seamless evening.”


I thought Last Night of Freedom provided an excellent service. You were very patient while our group reached an agreement about what we wanted to do, and then booked it quickly and easily.

The Go Karting was fantastic fun and the evening meal was excellent quality - much better than I expected. Thanks!”


“We were booked on the party bus which started with a meal.

The bus worked really well and kept the group together. ”


“Had a great weekend. The accomadation we stayed in was outstanding it has everything you need for everyone. ”


Excellent weekend. Shame the bar crawl was rushed.”


All the lads had a great time on our stag doo in Edinburgh. Last Night of Freedom did a great job, appartments were ace. Only thing wrong all weekend was a transfer to our Paintball evevnt, last night of freedom quickly sorted this out and i can see it was somthing out of there hands.”


The whole weekend was a great success thanks to Last Night Of Freedom it saved alot of time trying to locate venues or wondering where would be a good place to go, Instead we put our faith in their hands and all worked out dandy and fine.Good mixture of activities and plenty of time in between to do some of your own things.

Once again, thanks very much guys from myself and all the lads.”


Fun was had by all and the hotel we stayed in was top notch for the price we paid, all in all a top weekend!


The weekend as a whole was great and enjoyed by everyone.”


Top weekend, so much to do in such little time and so many bars to go to in Edinburgh, we just didnt sleep very much!! Also the paint balling was a riot. We didnt stop laughing all weekend, thanks very much Last Night Of Freedom for a memorable weekend


Quality weekend, Edinburgh is a fantastic location & LNOF were extremely helpful in organising it all. ”


What an epic weekend! Everything was perfect, organising it was easy with LNOFs help and the weekend itself went down a storm.

Highly recommend the party bus, it was absolute carnage on there, and Edinburgh is a great city, the friendliest I've ever been to and full of hens and stags. Thanks LNOF! ”


Great weekend. I'd recommend LNOF


“We had quite a large group, so the help Last Night of Freedom gave in sourcing the best place to stay and putting us in touch with the best companies, pubs and clubs there was invaluable.

It took a lot of the stress out of it for me as the organiser and meant all 27 of us had a full and fun couple of days, followed by a headachy and nauseous train trip home...”


The package provided by LNOF was very good, with accommodation comfortable and the activities good value. Edinburgh nightlife was a little quieter than anticipated, but overall a good weekend. ”


Great fun, some of the pubs would not allow groups in which spoilt the fun a bit, but is completely understandable.”


Great weekend, Great city, Great time


The accomodation was very comfortable, however it was quite far from the city centre, a £12 taxi per journey.

The accomodation also charged us for checking out late. We where due to check out by 11am and didn't make it until 11.30, personally I thought this was unnecessary!

Other than this the night life was very good!


Great weekend and great service from LNOF! The location to pick the keys to the apartments up from was wrong on the documentation so I had to leave the lads in the pub and trek to the other side of town to find the keys. The guy on the phone was very patient giving directions when I kept getting lost! Distillery tour well recommended, never thought whisky and Iron Bru would be such a good combination...


Took the hassle out of the whole weekend and provided great piece of mind. No problems with tickets, no problems with meal bookings or events. ”


“The weekend got off to a slow start with me being forced to wear a Borat thong! But once we got through that the megaphone we bought went down a storm with the bouncers around Grassmarket in Edinburgh!”


Great weekend, good cost, and made life very easy for us including organising transportation around town. Edinburgh is a great place for a stag do.


“Leigh (where the apartments were) is a cool area in itself and it's worth emphasising this fact when describing the accommodation I would have thought.”


Edinburgh is a great city for a stag weekend - and the activity was fab (just a shame there wasn't a truly Scot's event like curling on offer!) Only blip was the coach we booked not turning up so we had to use taxi's. Had quick response and refund from yourselves.”
