What better way to get a full taste of Scotland than by getting involved in your own mini highland games! The Edinburgh stag party highland games take place in the grounds of one of Scotland's finest castles, the perfect location for this timeless Scottish classic. Our friendly and fully 'kilted-up' highland instructors will ensure your event runs smoothly and more importantly you all enjoy some highly competitive sporting battle on your Edinburgh stag do.
Your party will be split into teams (the number of teams will depend on your group size) by the marshals who are proper highlanders and as tough as William Wallace's sporran. They'll give you a rundown of the events and then brief coaching on each individual game as you reach it, including launching weights over an iron bar, welly hurling, farmers dash, highland dancing, bagpipe playing, tug 'o' war, and of course the infamous caber toss!
You'll spend approximately 15-20 minutes on an activity before rotating on to the next. Once all activities are complete the scores will be tallied up and a small presentation ceremony will commence crowning the 'Lairds' of the Stag Weekend Highland Games.
Of course, it's entirely up to you if you want to run any side wagers, with forfeits for the losing team.
Because of the pandemic, there's limited availability for 2022 due to 1000s of events being rescheduled and new events being booked in daily.
Please Note: We work with 1000s of suppliers across the UK & Europe so prices, availability, photos and specifics on our highland games activity may vary depending on your preferred location and dates.
Feel free to ask your Destination Specialist at the time of booking if you have any questions about this.
