Popular daytime stag do activities in Edinburgh

We’ve got a whole host of daytime activities which will keep you and the lads entertained; how about embarking on an off road buggy experience, where you’ll be in control of some beastly rage buggies, or try white water rafting and crash through the waves as you hurtle down a river. Looking for something more chilled? No worries, we’ve got less extreme activities too such as a treasure hunt, or why not partake in some traditional highland games?

Most popular evening stag do activities in Edinburgh

So what has Edinburgh got to offer? Well, let us fill you in with some of our favourite stag do evening activities. You’ll need some hearty food to keep you going all night, so check out Steak and Strip, which is exactly what it says on the tin. We’ll send you to a top restaurant and then on to its adjourning gentlemen’s club where you can watch some rather sexy ladies shake their booty. Another option for your night is a visit to one of Edinburgh’s top nightclubs, where you and the rest of the stags can enjoy VIP access.

Edinburgh Stag Do Guide

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

So, Scotland’s capital city might be a bit colder compared to other sunnier climates, but does that really matter in the grand scheme of things? 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.   

Give Edinburgh a go if you are looking for:

  • A compact city that’s easy to navigate (meaning it’s quicker to hit the best booze spots!)
  • Home to some of the greatest whisky around!
  • VIP nightclub entry, saucy strip clubs and much more!


Edinburgh really comes alive at night and here we’ve got some of the best haunts to hit up where you can showcase your signature moves. However, it's always a good idea to line your stomach before your wild night of drinking, so why not enjoy a hearty and delicious three course meal, complete with some Scottish beer sampling first of all and discover the wonders of microbrewed ale and lager? Nightclub wise, there are plenty of options to choose from including The Cav Club where you can enjoy some top tunes and some seriously epic partying; we can even arrange for you to jump the queue and indulge in a super stylish VIP booth! If you’re thinking of treating the stag to a sexy private dance, then check out Fantasy Palace, and pay a visit to some of Edinburgh’s sexiest lassies at a stylish and sophisticated gentlemen’s club.

Tips and Ideas

Edinburgh is probably most famous for the fringe festival, which is definitely worthwhile getting involved with if you’re here for your stag do whilst it’s on; however, Edinburgh is literally bursting with plenty of other great things to keep you and the stag group occupied throughout the rest of the year.

There are many excellent views to take in around Edinburgh, such as the Scott Monument; a 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!) Edinburgh’s extinct volcano.  It’s a pretty easy hike where you’ll be rewarded with some breath-taking views and probably some good banter with the lads along the way. If sightseeing isn’t really for you, why not indulge in a bit of ‘hair of the dog’ and sample a wee dram at some of Edinburgh’s finest whisky bars? Or go all out and check out the Scotch Whisky Experience and discover aromas and flavours which will lead you to your favourite malt whisky at this replica distillery.

Getting around

Getting around Edinburgh is as easy as ABC – 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. There are a few gradients, but nothing that can’t be handled by those with mediocre fitness levels. Or how about hiring some bikes and peddling your way around with the guys? There’s also a great bus service offering frequent and low cost services across the city – take advantage of the Lothian Buses Day ticket, which provides unlimited travel around Edinburgh.

Alternatively, there’s the tram which is Edinburgh’s latest public transport addition, where you can travel almost nine miles from Edinburgh airport to York Place in the city centre. Single and return tickets can be purchased at each tram stop, and you can pay using debit/credit cards and coins, although no change will be offered. The city is accessible by car, although it’s probably easier to take advantage of the public transport options that's on offer. 

Remember, we can arrange for transfers to and from your hotel to make life that bit easier for you!
