What to do in Edinburgh

Wild, rugged and untamed... no, we're not just talking about our stationery cupboard (although it certainly has never been tamed). Scotland and stag parties were surely made for each other. And when it comes to outdoor activities Edinburgh really is a force to be reckoned with. If you're heading to the capital with StagWeb, then you'll have the opportunity to take part in some of the best stag activities around. From one-off Scottish adventures like duckies (you'll get wet, we'll explain later) or your very own version of the Highland Games, to some of the more traditional Edinburgh stag activities including go karting and paintball, an Edinburgh stag do really does have all tastes covered. What's more, at StagWeb we know the best venues, have the low-down on the best times and transfers and will build the ultimate itinerary so you get the most from your weekend north of the border.

Just how wild will it be?

Legend might suggest your weekend should be a wild affair but at StagWeb we appreciate that not every group wants the same experience. We work hard to offer only the highest quality activities, so whether you want an adrenaline-packed weekend, or if Scotland's forthcoming Commonwealth Games have inspired you to indulge in some friendly competition, we'll find you the package to suit.

For a Scottish adventure…

It's impossible not to get caught up in the fun-loving spirit of the Scots, so why not throw yourselves into the top traditional stag activities Edinburgh has in store?

For a totally unique experience take to the great outdoors for some competitive fun. With friendly instructors to guide you through the course, your own mini highland games will be a stag event to be remembered. Welly hurling, highland dancing and even a good old fashioned tug-o-war, it's got them all. And of course, no highland games would be complete without the infamous caber toss!

If it's extreme sport you want why not experience some white water rafting as only Edinburgh knows how? Taking in no less than 4 rivers, the 'death fang' and a two-tier 20 foot drop, there won't just be testosterone flying around when you hit the water, but quite likely arms, legs and a few bodies to boot. But in or out of the raft, with experienced instructors and the latest rafting gear at your disposal, you're guaranteed a white knuckle ride you won't forget.

For something a little different have a go at a duckies session. White water rafting meets kayaking on a fast flowing course that promises thrills and spills aplenty. Grab your paddle, steady your nerves and hit the rapids for an afternoon's racing that's sure to get the adrenaline pumping.

Can we mix and match?

Start the day with some fast-paced action:

Then adjust the tempo for a more sedate afternoon's activities:

One of our most popular activities, you're guaranteed a healthy dose of competition at Scotland's premier site for clay pigeon shooting.

Or take advantage of being in the country that brings you Scotch whisky with a distillery tour. Lasting roughly an hour it's an activity easily combined as part of a varied day's events.
