Edinburgh stag do ideas
From the world-famous Edinburgh Festival to top-class restaurants and bars, not to mention quirky and traditional pubs, stag parties will be spoilt for choice in the Scottish capital. If you have never visited Edinburgh then it's perfect for the well-heeled stag weekend away.
Every group that travels to Edinburgh has to visit the Royal Castle which dominates the city skyline. The building dates back to the 12th century and still to this day houses the Scottish Crown Jewels! Speaking of Scottish jewels... The traditional kilt is now regarded as formal wear and only tends to make an appearance at special events rather than everyday wear. They do make a great addition to stag photos though.
If you are really wanting to embrace the Scottish culture you can now compete in (the unofficial) Highland Games! See who's the best at hurling haggis, wangling wellies and test the strength of your stags in a good ol' fashioned tug o' war.
Once you're done exploring the city and hurling Scottish delicacies you will need to party like a local. Edinburgh has plenty of choice when it comes to nightlife, whether you are after a traditional boozer or a lively nightclub, there are heaps of venues all over the city. We highly recommend pre-booking on Fridays & Saturdays though as most venues won't allow unexpected stag parties! You can purchase our party pass & queue jump for access to a number of top bars and clubs.
Our favourite stag do activities in Edinburgh:
If you're the competitive type, our highland games will have you and the other stags compete individually and in teams across a number of Scottish mini-games such as the cabre-toss, welly wanging and much more!
Tear up some dirt on the quads or try to hit the targets in one of our shooting activities.
If you have any Scotch lovers in your stag party, Edinburgh is the perfect place to sample some delicious whiskys.
What not to miss whilst on your Edinburgh Stag Party:
1) Edinburgh Castle
There has been a royal castle on the rock since the 12th century and is the official residence of the monarchy in Scotland!
2) The Royal Mile
Located in the heart of Edinburgh is the Royal Mile, a stretch of cobbled road with unique souvenir shops, quirky cafes and beautiful architecture.
3) Arthur's Seat
If you fancy getting a breath of fresh air and a good few snaps of Edinburgh from above then you can hike up to the top of Arthur's Seat - Edinburgh's extinct volcano!
