Edinburgh is one Scotland’s most active and energetic party cities, which promises you and your group of stags a weekend that’s bursting with booze and mayhem.

You’ll find some great bars and clubs to fuel your night-time antics, along with top day time activities and some of the sexiest lassies around. So what are you waiting for? Throw on your kilt and sporran and party away the last weekend of freedom with the Scots!

Getting around

You’ll find that getting around Edinburgh is super easy – it’s a compact city which can be explored via several modes of transport. If you fancy saving a bit of money and taking in the sights that Edinburgh has to offer, then take a stroll around by foot. Edinburgh is full of side streets and medieval alleyways for you to explore. Alternatively, you could consider hiring some bikes and peddling your way around with the lads! There’s also a great bus service offering frequent and low-cost services across the city. Instead, you could hop on the tram where you can travel almost nine miles from Edinburgh airport to York Place in the city centre. The city is also accessible by car, however, it’s probably easier to take advantage of the public transport options that the city has to offer. 

Tips and ideas

Edinburgh is probably most famous for the Fringe Festival. During this time, the city is bursting with talent and different types of entertainment. From comedy shows to music performances, you’ll find that there’s something for everyone to enjoy. With this in mind, it’s definitely worth getting involved if you’re in Edinburgh for your stag do whilst the festival is on. However, if the Edinburgh Fringe is something that you’re interested in, then it’s vital that you book sooner rather than later as availability in the city is limited and gets booked extremely quickly due to the popularity of the event.

There are plenty of exciting and unique activities on offer on a stag weekend in Edinburgh. If you and the rest of the group would rather take part in some classic stag do activities like Paintballing or a Quads, Archery and Air Rifles Experience, then we can certainly sort this for you.

Edinburgh is absolutely brimming with excellent views which is perfect if you’ve all had a heavy night out and need some fresh air to clear your heads! Take a trip to the Scott Monument, which is finely constructed piece of Gothic architecture dedicated to the memory of Sir Walter Scott, where you can make your way up its narrow staircase for an awesome view. Or, how about washing your face in the dew of Arthur’s seat? Don’t worry, it’s nothing seedy, we promise! It’s actually Edinburgh’s extinct volcano. It’s a pretty easy hike where you’ll be rewarded with some breath-taking views and probably some great banter with the lads along the way.

If sightseeing isn’t really for you, then why not indulge in a bit of ‘hair of the dog’ and sample a wee dram at some of Edinburgh’s finest whisky bars? We can arrange for you to go Whisky Tasting and discover aromas and flavours which will lead you to your favourite malt whisky.


Edinburgh certainly does come alive at night and here we’ve got some of the best haunts for you to hit up and showcase your signature moves! It’s always a good idea to line your stomach before a night on the town, so why not enjoy a hearty (and delicious) three course meal? We’re more than happy to take the hassle away and organise this for you. 

In terms of nightclubs, there are plenty of options to choose from including the popular venue, Atik. Here you can enjoy some top tunes and some epic partying! We can even arrange for you to jump the queue and organise a super stylish VIP booth. If you’re thinking of treating the stag to a sexy private dance, then you should check out Fantasy Palace, and pay a visit to some of Edinburgh’s sexiest lassies at a stylish and sophisticated gentlemen’s club.
