It's not all tartan, heather and kilts. More beers, banter and bonny lasses. Och aye, the Edinburgh stag do mixes cracking little boozers, stunning old town architecture and uber-cool clubs.
It's impossible to miss out the epicentre of stag nights at the Grassmarket and Royal Mile. But you could miss the Scottish Parliament and Arthur's Seat in preference for footgolf and a wee dram.
The relaxed Scottish drink laws will give your stags more opening hours to frequent the 700 drinking establishments.
Murrayfield still holds the record for the biggest attendance at a rugby game, just over 104,000 watched Scotland play Wales in 1975.
Take a wee jaunt and you're out in the stunning Scottish countryside, where exhilarating stag weekend outdoor pursuits include paintball, karting, hovercrafting, white water rafting, bubble football and it's a knockout.
Where else would you expect to take part in mini-highland games including tossing the caber, hurling the haggis, tug of war and 4 other contests of Scottish pride. Become an alcohol connoisseur with an exclusive whisky tasting on your stag night. Or with some of the best golf courses in the world make sure the round at the bar isn't your only round.
The bagpipes are a calling, the whisky chasers are awaiting, the haggis is optional. Famous for Hogmanay and the Fringe Festival it would be a crime not to add the comedy stag night to your shortlist, and an injustice to the female form to neglect the steak and strip club.
George Street is a great place to start your night, full of decent bars and happy hour deals. For the best food package choose the 2 course stag party night, or go for traditional Scottish at Angels and Bagpipes before rocking up at the Whiski Bar serving over 270 whiskies and live music.
