As much as getting on one knee is an incredibly important part of the process, and planning the wedding can be one of the most stressful tasks imagined, you can't forget about celebrating your last night of freedom! Traditionally, a Stag or Hen Party would take place the day or evening before your wedding day, but in the 21st Century we find these events getting booked for around a month prior to the big day - leaving plenty of time to work off those hangovers.

As part of a series of blog posts (and hopefully some helpful tips too), here are our favourite Stag Party destinations and activities:

Option #3:
Edinburgh, Scotland
Maybe not one of the warmest parts of Britain, but certainly one of the most beautiful and historical. Whether you be planning a summer Stag Party or something out of season in the colder months, Edinburgh has plenty to offer in the way of fun. Combining both New Town and Old Town, what an amazing and lively setting for one of the most fun weekends of your life.

Edinburgh Quad Bike Trek - £49pp
We provide rambles at an exciting off-road venue just outside Edinburgh using a fleet of modern Yamaha Grizzly quads. Exploring the park and woodland riders encounter a wide variety of obstacles to cross. With hills and dirt tracks, woodland humps and bumps, plus plenty of water hazards and mud thrown in for good measure, you are guaranteed a great ride on the all-terrain quads.

Edinburgh Canyoning - £65pp
The awesome Canyoning venue is located around an hour easy motorway drive from Edinburgh, so perfect for after a night out and you want to get away from the city life. The experience starts with a nice, scenic walk up to the top of the canyon section then follows slides, scrambles, white water swims, cliff jumps, and a cable traverse to the ultimate five meter slide drop! You will be fitted with the highest quality technical equipment ensuring your comfort and safety during the adventure. It's a perfect Stag activity for adventurous parties.
