Why Scotland is the Perfect Destination for a Stag Do

Posted on Posted in Stag Do Activities

Scotland is the ideal location for a stag do, from adventurous activities to fantastic accommodation, there are so many great reasons to plan your stag do in Scotland. You’ll want to make sure the stag event that you plan is full of the things the groom will love, giving him a great send off with the boys before he starts the next chapter of his life! Below we’ll talk you through some of our most popular stag activities and accommodation options in the region so that you can plan a stag that everyone will love.

Stag Activities

If the groom-to-be is the adventurous type, activities including 4×4 off road driving, quad biking and paintballing could be the perfect way to get his adrenaline going. If you’re planning a stag for a group of people who don’t all know each other, paintballing is a brilliant activity, encouraging people to mix into two teams and work together to win! 4×4 off road driving and quad biking races are also a fantastic way to add some healthy competition into the weekend, ensuring there’s plenty of banter throughout the trip.

If the groom is more of the competitive type, archery, clay pigeon shooting or simulated deer or game stalking are great activities to get him focused and competing with his mates. All of these activities are great at getting everyone involved and having fun, helping people relax into the weekend. Making forfeits for those who don’t hit the target can carry the fun on after the event, and makes sure everyone gets involved in participating so they don’t have to deal with the consequences!
