The Scottish Capital is a lively, diverse, historical city, steeped in Scottish tradition, and with a huge range of activities on offer on top of the brilliant atmosphere and rich nightlife, Edinburgh is a fantastic choice for your stag do. When it comes to choice, we are your people. With around 150 options, our activities range from the sporty to the culinary, the adrenaline-fuelled to the booze-fuelled, so whatever the group of lads you bring on your weekend away, there’s guaranteed to be something to please everyone. Start off in the great outdoors enjoying some traditional Scottish competition with our Mini Highland Games, or kick things up a gear with our white water adventures or even canyoning. When it comes to on or off-road activity, we can offer you an array of motorised excitement, from dirt buggies to quad biking, segways to karting. Head into the evening with drinks tasting, cocktail making and entry to a nightclub and you’ll have an Edinburgh stag do package to remember.
Where else would you start on a Scottish stag do than by pitting your physical strength against a series of traditional Scottish games? Our incredibly popular Mini Highland Games features such events as tossing the caber, welly-wanging and tyre flipping. Test your mettle against your mates, with the winner walking away with a bottle of Scotland’s finest whiskey.There’s plenty more by way of physical challenges depending on your interest. Want to shoot some stuff? How about bullets, arrows or clay pigeons. Want to add some speed to the weekend? Get muddy driving off-road or in our ever-popular Rage Buggies, or go indoors and compete in a go karting challenge. If you’re looking for something a little different, why not try something guaranteed to set pulses racing – Electric Shock Football is a game changer, quite literally, as you up the stakes and take part in a series of football challenges where the price for losing is more than just a penalty. Or if you fancy the football but without the pain, take part in a hilarious game of bubble football – just make sure you save the drinking until afterwards, or it could get messy in there. Speaking of messy, why not paint the town red – or paint your mates blue, or green, or yellow – in a fast-paced paintball competition.
When the lights go down in Edinburgh, and it’s the business end of your stag do, we’ve got a range of enticing options to make it a night to remember. We have plenty of places for you to line your stomachs, from Zizzi’s to Revolution, or don your stretchy waistbands and take on the mighty Man Plank food challenge at the legendary Three Sisters pub, a 5ft plank loaded with meaty treats and all washed down by a huge 2 pint stein of beer.
Or you could simply opt to indulge in a deep-fried Mars Bar and get on with the drinking. Begin the boozing with our popular whiskey tasting experience, where you’ll be able to sample a wee dram (or three) of Scotland’s finest fire water. Once that’s warmed your bellies carry on the fun by taking in the highlights of the city’s drinking scene with our customer favourite bar crawl, and soak in Edinburgh’s rich history alongside its hearty drinking tradition, taking in the likes of the Royal Mile and the Grass Market along the way. Add in some Beer Babes to enhance your bar crawl experience, and not only will you be shown around the best bars, but you’ll also continue to a strip club and nightclub afterwards. As the night progresses we can make sure you’re on the best guestlists in town, with VIP entry to Club Tropicana, Shanghai or Espionage. Don’t forget to treat the stag on his big weekend, we can get you into a top lap dancing club and make it a night he won’t forget in a hurry.
