...A very well organised day. Greatly enjoyed by all, highly recommended...
It’s Edinburgh... need we say more?! There’s a reason it was once voted European Destination of the Year - Scotland’s capital is one of the greats when it comes to throwing a party! It’s got a buzzing nightlife. It’s got style. It’s got extreme action adventure. In fact, an Edinburgh stag do is in the city that’s got it all. And at StagWeb we’ve got the knowledge, accommodation and great offers to pull everything together and build a truly amazing stag weekend experience.
Festival season - The city sees in the New Year with the mighty ‘Hogmanay’ and really doesn’t let up from there. Careful planning will be needed for late July/August, when trying to get something booked might prove a little tricky, as the world famous Edinburgh festival packs the capital to its limits.
The great British weather - The weather doesn’t dampen the spirits of the hardy locals, and it certainly won't get in the way of a good time, but it can play a part in the winter months when the availability of one or two of the big activities like the high ropes is limited. But the shorter days bring the seasonal activities into their own, so why not add a spot of curling, skiing or some whisky tasting to your itinerary.
Scotland’s capital is without doubt an exciting place to host a weekend experience, and with some careful planning an Edinburgh stag do will be a sure fire hit anytime of the year.
One of the UK’s major capitals, getting your stag party to the city couldn’t be easier. The Scottish motorway network provides easy access by road, so driving is a definite option, or if you'd rather sit back and enjoy the ride why not make use of the bus and coach services that head out from all major UK cities? Travelling by train is another solid option, with great rail links across the country. You could even opt for a sleeper. See our flights page to find the best current prices for travelling by air. Taxi services are available to take you the 25 minute journey to the capital, and shuttle services run 24 hours a day between the airport and the city.
Edinburgh is an impressive capital with a rich history and healthy appetite for entertainment. Head down to the cobbled streets of Old Town, home to the Royal Mile and vibrant Grassmarket, which boast some of the best drinking spots in the city. Take a trip to New Town, where you’ll find the famous and lively Princes Street, or make your way to the trendy Leith district. With its mixture of fine dining, chic bars, top bistros and infectious upbeat attitude, the Shore area is well worth a visit. We have a great range of accommodation available across the city, but Edinburgh is a hugely popular destination so it really does pay to plan ahead.
For some testosterone fuelled action take to the water for more extreme activities such as white water rafting, duckies or hovercraft racing. If you have more than a few would-be Lewis Hamilton's amongst the group our driving experiences include Honda pilots, go karting and tank driving. The sporty can take to the high ropes or the rugby pitch, or for something altogether more relaxing why not take a trip to the health spa or spend an evening perfecting your cocktail mixing skills before sampling the end results!
