Stag Party Series: Edinburgh

Edinburgh scotland dusk

Are you searching for a stag do destination that is unique and exciting, but want to avoid the expense and inconvenience of taking a trip overseas? Well, a stag do in Edinburgh will certainly provide precisely that, and right here I shall provide a bit more detail why you should hit the Scottish capital.


The first impression you get on arrival is that it is a spectacular city, with marvellous old structures, lofted up on hills and situated in valleys. It appears as though the structures are in fact developed into and from the rock.

Stag Activities

With its rugged mountainous countryside, Edinburgh exposes itself to an incredible variety of activities – a lot of which cannot be done anywhere else in the UK. These include such as white water rafting, canoeing, canyon walking and river bugging. If none of these interest you then fear not, as classic favourites such as paintball games, quad bike travelling, clay shooting and archery are widely available.


Edinburgh comes alive in the evening and has a fantastic range of restaurants, pubs, clubs and trendy bars that will suit all tastes. During the summer time Edinburgh transforms into a festival city, with events running back to back through July and August.


Due to its popularity with stag groups and general tourists, getting accommodation can be troublesome- especially during the summer festival period. On the other hand, there are lots of hostels in Edinburgh which are a convenient preference for the budget tourist. For those with a little more funds, apartments offer another excellent quality preference to expensive hotels.
